Call for Proposals: Designing cost-effective curbside electric vehicle charging stations

Readily available public charging stations would increase the demand for EVs, but cities have been slow to install them due in part to the cost as well as limited curbside space. Therefore, Enel X is looking for innovative solutions to deploy a large number of EV charging stations that is economical, technically feasible, and aesthetically pleasing.

Enel X is Enel’s global business line dedicated to developing innovative products and digital solutions in sectors in which energy is showing the greatest potential for transformation: cities, homes, industries, and electric mobility. Enel X is interested in technical designs of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations that are easily accessible with minimal visual and physical impact within an urban environment.

This is a Reduction to Practice Challenge that requires written documentation including electrical and mechanical design of the solution.

OVERVIEW

Electric cars are rising in popularity as consumers look for more sustainable ways to travel. With electric vehicles, the total driving distance is limited by battery capacity. For people who don’t have a driveway at home or a charging station at work, the logistics of owning and operating an electric vehicle (EV) becomes more complicated. Readily available public charging stations would increase the demand for EVs, but cities have been slow to install them due in part to the cost as well as limited curbside space. Therefore, Enel X is looking for innovative solutions to deploy a large number of EV charging stations that is economical, technically feasible, and aesthetically pleasing.

Dateline for proposal submission: April 30, 2019
