Partner for the rally route
Engadin St. Moritz: An electrified region.
These mountains. These lakes. This light! The inspiring vacation region Engadin and the glamorous St. Moritz offer holidays in breathtaking nature. And that’s how it should stay – as the first Alpine destination worldwide, Engadin St. Moritz is consistently advocating the use of renewable energies.
The sky is within reach, the lake plateau glitters in the afternoon light, the Arolla Pine forests smell of fresh resin, and in the villages the houses stretch their facades towards the sun: Engadin St. Moritz seems like music for the eyes. One can’t see enough of this unique landscape with the picturesque mountain panorama, the clear lakes and the magical light. It has inspired entire legions of poets and painters and still continues to do so.
And this nature needs to be taken care of: as Energy City, St. Moritz sets new standards and since December 2010 the first hotel of the Alps that produces more energy than it needs graces the Muottas Muragl. 180 solar panels are located on the tracks of the Corviglia Funicular and produce enough electricity for every sixth ride. The incline and the base cableway stations at the Piz Nair are equipped with solar panel facades and the schoolhouse St. Moritz, as well as the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel are heated with the heat generated by the Lake St, Moritz. Organic farmers use catering, kitchen, and green waste, manure and slurry in a very modern, environmentally friendly way – they transform the rubbish into electricity in a biogas plant – enough for 170 households. After a great event in 2011 Engadin St. Moritz is looking forward to welcoming the e-miglia 2012.
Partner in charging technology
P-CHARGE / Schletter GmbH
Our objective is to advance development in electric mobility! By combining the charging pillar from the P-CHARGE range with the Carport system Park@Sol we have designed a sustainable concept for the vehicle fleet of the future.
P-CHARGE represents a complete line of charging stations for electric vehicles for both private and public areas. Whatever the customer specification – from the basic charging stations for electric bicycles, scooters and cars to complete parking area systems for supermarket chains, municipal parking decks and public parking areas, we have the perfect solution; in each case the P-CHARGE system can be customized to your individual requirements.
Each pillar is equipped with the appropriate socket systems depending on the specification. Further enhancement of the P-CHARGE charging pillars and wall boxes is possible through the addition of a variety of charging and billing systems. Adding the new EWS Box provides a fully network-capable control unit for the systematic provision of charging power to the user. This allows for the execution of intelligent charging processes, power management and optimized charging.
