Char.gy Limited, an England and Wales registered company has found a way to work around the problem of creating separate charging stations by using the omnipresent streetlight to charge your vehicle.Its technology has proven its prowess and has now been approved and adopted by the UK government. Char.gy’s tech of converting any lamppost to an EV charging station will mean easier access, could mean unmanned operations and a worry free EV ride for India’s EV owners.
“Drivers without off-street parking are still not catered for when it comes to charging an electric vehicle, and that’s just not cool. Imagine a world where every lamppost is also a charge point. Wouldn’t that make things simpler?”Company website quoted.
Char.gy is a shining example of the benefits UK’s own drive for EV’s has created for start-ups. With electrification of transport linked to large-scale renewable energy seen as crucial in its efforts to cut carbon emissions besides the huge push from the London government, which is seeking to reduce pollution in the city.
And char.gy might even have plans for India. With FAME-2 looking to support only commercial fleet owners, the OEM’s have enough reasons enough to now either setup independently their charging stations, or tie-up with companies like char.gy to quickly roll out the infrastructure required for piggybacking on India’s lampposts.
