Alte-Go installs 18 EV chargers in Gobuda Mall's garage
The services offered at Gobuda Mall, developed by Wing, now include new electric vehicle charging stations to serve the growing number of electric vehicles with green license plates, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
In cooperation with Alte-Go, the independent division of Alteo that deals with the installation and operation of charging stations as well as other e-mobility solutions, the company has installed 18 electric vehicle charging stations for shoppers in the underground car park of the shopping center.
“The new charging stations also demonstrate Wing's interest in sustainability and environmental protection, both of which were considered priorities in the development of the Gobuda shopping center. With these values in mind, the entire building has undergone a major energy upgrade, which will significantly reduce the building’s noise emissions and air pollution. The cost-effective charging system we installed is an additional service offered to visitors to the mall driving electric vehicles,” explains Ernő Takács, Wing’s deputy managing director responsible for hotel and retail development.
The dynamic energy management system allocates only the amount of energy needed by the connected vehicles at any given time to the charging units. The result is a cost-effective system that makes the charging fee one of the lowest in Budapest. The first two hours of parking are free of charge in the shopping center’s garage. To start using the 22 kW chargers, users must enter the five-digit code displayed on the charger on their Alte-Go mobile app or on the start.altegoapp.hu website.
“E-mobility is becoming more and more a part of our daily lives, and charging electric vehicles is increasingly linked to investments in sustainability and energy efficiency,” says Dénes Novotny, head of Alteo’s e-mobility division.
