Street lights with charging points

Street light pole as electricity source

innogy and its partners do not just drive electric mobility but also innovative solutions: in 2016 innogy commissioned the first charging point that uses a street lighting pole as electricity source in the town of Hamminkeln (North Rhine-Westphalia). The street light is equipped with a system socket. The electricity flows from the existing low-voltage grid and can charge any electric vehicle. A “smart cable” is required for charging. It contains the technology for controlling the entire charging process from approval for charging and consumption metering to transmission of consumption data and invoicing. A complete charging process for a car parked at a street light takes approximately five hours. In this way parking times can be used efficiently.
