France is among the top countries in Europe for e-mobility. Many cities are installing public charging stations for electric vehicles (EV), coupling them with dedicated parking spaces. Being certain to find an available lot is fundamental for EV drivers, as most cars currently in use have a specific driving range and do need regular charging.
G2Mobility, French company pioneering intelligent recharge solutions for electric vehicles (EV), was selected by Syndicat départemental d’Energie d’Eure-et-Loir and Syndicat Electrique Intercommunal du Pays Chartrain to install EV charging points throughout the Eure-et-Loir department.
G2Mobility wanted to complement its charging stations offering and prevent unauthorized use of parking lots dedicated to EV recharge, also providing drivers with real-time availability information.
About 120 Smart Parking Sensors were deployed in 2015 in Eure-et-Loir. Devices were integrated with G2Mobility systems, pairing vehicle occupancy data with power drainage from charging stations to ensure a reliable and effective monitoring of EV charging stations usage. Results are very positive, and recent surveys confirm the high user satisfaction.
