Promoting e-mobility initiatives to cut emissions

Massagno, the second most populated centre in the Lugano district (Switzerland), focuses its project on the urban district of Via Motta.

This area consists of several multi-family buildings, some commercial buildings, an elderly care home, and  large office buildings. The district also hosts a PV plant with a total installed capacity of 59 kWp on the roof of the elderly care home, while a V2G-ready EV charging column (DC, 10 kWe) together with a car-sharing vehicle (Honda e – 35.5 kWh of electric storage) can be used as  a flexibility and battery storage solution. The pilot site also has two 11 kWe public charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs) that are available to residents.

GINNGER’s strategy emphasises the use of electric vehicles in creating sustainable and affordable lifestyles. The integration of electromobility solutions and the expansion of the public EV infrastructure are our strategic goals.
