Many things within a parking space require energy, from the lighting to the automated doors and the electric vehicle charging. It can be quite a big change to ensure that the energy used, is from a sustainable source. When considering the energy source, opt for a green energy supplier or even install solar panels. It is even possible to connect solar panels as a direct source for charging the EV vehicles, this is one of the most sustainable forms of energy which you can use in a parking lot. There are some amazing innovations to using solar panel energy, even when there is no roof at a parking lot.
One of the more sustainable forms of travelling by car is by using electric vehicles (EV). This reduces a lot of the CO2 emissions. However, all electric vehicles require charging stations as well. In the UK alone, for example, it is already estimated that 750.000 additional charging points will be needed to ensure that people without home charges can charge once a week. By installing EV charging stations, you are making it more appealing for users to buy EV’s.
