- Charging stations by innogy awarded UL seal
- Great potential for intelligent load management in the USA
The abbreviation UL stands for Underwriters Laboratories. The internationally active safety sciences company independently and comprehensively tested innogy’s charging points, which have been modified for the USA. The main focus was on electrical safety, fire protection, usability and customer friendliness. The clear verdict: innogy’s charging points meet the valid safety standards for the USA.
“UL approval is a significant step and opens the door to one of the world’s most attractive markets for electromobility worldwide. States like California are the trailblazers of a stricter climate-protection policy. The interest in emission-free driving is thus huge.”
innogy is hardly an unknown quantity in California. Since 2015, the company has been cooperating with the University of California in San Diego and the German car manufacturer Daimler. There are 26 charging points offering green electricity that is generated on the campus, which can charge the batteries of several smart fortwo electric drive cars. The goal of the project is to harmonize electricity use with renewable energy generation through innovative charging management – that’s exactly what’s in demand in the US market.
With over 5,800 charging points, innogy is one of the leading providers of charging infrastructure in Europe. In Germany, the company has built up a large integrated charging network with more than 150 public utility partners. The goal is: Wherever an electric car is parked, it should be able to charge – and the best way of doing this is in harmonious interplay with regenerative energy generation.
