Ten new electric charging areas have been installed in Milan in the south-east quadrant: two in Corso Lodi (at number 5 and 34), in addition to those in viale Col di Lana 2, via Bocconi 28, via Cassinis 79, piazzale Cantore 2, via Sile 31, piazza Caduti del Lavoro 5, via Laura Ciceri Visconti 2, via Pietrasanta 8. The initiative was supported by Nhp Esco and Amat, as well as by Palazzo Marino. These are “mini centers” of charging service, stalls and ‘smart’ car parks, managed by a digital platform.
Marco Granelli, Milanese councilor for mobility, reported that five hundred recharging points are operational in Milan and, with the autumn, the construction of another forty areas financed by the Municipality and by European Pon Metro funds is planned. The aim is to cover the whole city “in a way that is consistent with the development of electric vehicles”.
Cristina Tajani, councilor for production activities, underlined that “projects like this, which see both public and private”, demonstrate how the “intelligent use of new technologies, flanked by co-design from below with direct listening and participation of residents “, is the most appropriate choice” for the development of Milan “.
In each area there are two ‘fast charge’ columns, each equipped with two sockets for a maximum supply power of up to 22 kw, and an ‘ultra fast charge’ column, equipped with three dispensers and one socket, which reaches maximum power of 150 kw.
