Sustainable energy transition, low-carbon future: With the products from ubitricity it is possible to provide energy for every electric vehicle everywhere.
ubitricity stands for ubiquitous electricity. When ubitricity was founded in 2008, the aim was to charge e-vehicles with energy from renewable resources wherever they park. ubitricity integrates the battery of the electric vehicle into the power grid and makes electric driving as cheap as possible. In this way, ubitricity delivers sustainable added value and a lucrative, future-proof business in the interests of all customer, stakeholders and employees.
Today the company, based in London and Berlin, is one of the leading providers when it comes to intelligent solutions for charging and billing electric cars. ubitricity combines technical know-how such as the development of the mobile electricity meter with the possibilities of digitization.
ubitricity is a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell, within its Mobility division.
The specialty of ubitricity: Lamp post charge points
ubitricity was the first to retrofit the existing lamp posts with in-column charge points. The EV charging points are reduced to the core, the SimpleSockets. These are technically lean and can be operated with almost no running costs. Installation can take place within an hour as no earthworks are required.
That’s why AC standard chargers
Many EVs and PHEVs charge with 3.6 to 7.2 kWh, a few can charge between 11 and 22 kWh of electricity. 80% of EV drivers charge an average of 11.2 kWh per charging process, as they connect their electric car every day and the average daily distance is a maximum of 50 km. Slower charging is not only cheaper, it is also good for the car’s battery and for the network utilization.
The network integration V2Street and V2Grid considered
Charging points are available wherever vehicles park longer. In this way, users who initially operate vehicles with small batteries can use green electricity as many of their routes as possible. At the same time, their vehicles are available as consumers that can be intelligently integrated into the network during the typical idle time of 22 hours. This is an essential aspect for the smart use and further expansion of renewable energies.
