e-con continues to expand its sustainability concept. The company now offers its employees the opportunity for CO2–neutral transportation using an electric car. A Renault ZOE, which is 100-percent powered by solar energy from the company roof, has been added to the vehicle fleet.<!– wpml:html_fragment
“We want to set an example with our decision to use an electric car as the company vehicle and actively help electric cars to become accepted as an everyday part of our lives. As an innovative energy and building services engineering company, it seems only logical that we should apply resource-saving and energy-efficient solutions to our own vehicle fleet. We want to give as many employees as possible the opportunity to become familiar with the car and use it for travel between our locations,” says Chairman Andreas Müller.
The necessary charging infrastructure for “fuelling” the vehicle is already available in Unterallgäu and to the south. A standard charging station with two charging points for simultaneously charging two electric vehicles was installed, both on our premises in Memmingen as well as the premises of Gassner GmbH in Kempten, each with a total output of 44 kW. At the Green Factory of Alois Müller GmbH in Ungerhausen, there are now two fast charging stations with a total of 10 charging points and up to 150 kW. This means that an electric vehicle battery can be recharged within 20 minutes.
The charging stations get their energy from our own photovoltaic systems – which means they are CO2-neutral in two respects. All EV charging stations are freely accessible and open to everyone. “Electric mobility is an important concept for the future. The charging stations are right off the A96 motorway, which also makes them a convenient option for other electric car drivers on the road between Munich and Lindau,” says Peter Waizenegger, chairman of e-con AG.
Together with Alois Müller GmbH and other partners, two more fast charging stations were erected at the Allgäu Airport, featuring 10 parking spaces and a PV carport, located only about 150 m from the terminal.
“Continued development of electric mobility is a key topic for the future, and it requires us all to rethink and reorient ourselves on many different levels. What’s more, electric vehicles may become a critical component of the energy transformation. That is exactly why it is so important to us to be a knowledgeable, reliable contact partner for integrative solutions in the area of electric mobility and charging infrastructure for companies and communities,” explains Müller.
