The ORLEN Group is investing in electric mobility by developing networks and building infrastructure for external customers and public EV charging stations in Poland. The Group’s portfolio includes wall-mounted chargers, AC charging stations and lamp post charging points. It is complemented by the public EV charging network, which is ORLEN Charge that integrates chargers across the ORLEN Group.
An innovative option that completes our range of vehicle charging products are chargers installed in street lamp posts. This solution combines street lighting and electric mobility infrastructure. The power ‘saved’ by upgrading street lighting systems is effectively used to charge electric vehicles. An additional advantage is shorter time required to build the network and the network location itself, which overlaps with the area of demand for EV charging services. The chargers can be connected to the network of any distribution network operator (DSO) and can be installed anywhere in Poland. The target customers for this solution include:
- local governments;
- property developers;
- housing cooperatives and communities;
- tourist and hotel resorts.
The lamp post charging project has won the Wprost Innovators 2020 award in the ‘Energy’ category for Energa Oświetlenie. The service is part of the smart city project.
