Point. One S – Solar Powered Fast-Charging Station at BMW Well

22 Aug 2014 by admin

Point.One S is a sustainable installation placed outside the BMW well in Munich that is the result of a productive collaboration between the German firm EIGHT and the BMW group.

The solar powered fast charging station was implemented on site in order to create a central hub for the electric cars, local public transport and electric bicycles and an intersection between the local and long-distance transport routes.

The charging columns offer information about the current battery range and also show users where, when and for how long  the battery needs to be charged, before arriving to the pre-established destination.

The LED-based electric lighting concept delivers an interaction developed between the user and the solar charging station. The instant the user approaches the charging point, the color and the brightness of the LEDs change.
