Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Launched in Gasperich
As of yesterday, charging stations for electric vehicles are now available for use at “Bei der Auer” in Gasperich.
On Tuesday 19 September 2017, as part of the European Mobility Week, the Ville de Luxembourg, along with the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructures and Creos Luxembourg, inaugurated a charging station for electric cars and hybrid plug-in cars located at 22 rue de Gasperich at “Bei der Auer”.
This electric recharge terminal is part of a series of already installed and soon-to-be installed electric recharging stations in the capital as part of the implementation of the national e-mobility project.
Chargy, the network of public car kiosks for electric cars and hybrid plug-in cars in Luxembourg, has been operational since 2 June 2017. From that date, some 60 terminals have been installed throughout the country. It is expected that by the end of the year the network will have 150 terminals and by 2020 a total of 800 terminals, including 400 on the public car parks of the communes and 400 on the relay car parks allowing easy access to public transport.
Each terminal has two points of accelerated charge (modulable between 3.7 kW and 22 kW depending on the car) and Chargy will eventually encompass 1,600 parking spaces dedicated to electric mobility.
Of the 800 charging stations to be installed throughout the country, 102 terminals will be located in the Luxembourg-ville area. In 2013, the City of Luxembourg launched a project involving the installation of electric terminals in three public car parks (Schuman, Rocade and P+R Bouillon) and an extension of the offer was achieved in 2016 by setting up three electric terminals in the carpark of the Conservatoire de la Ville de Luxembourg. A further 104 stations will be set up on the P+Rs located in the territory of the City.
Additional stations are set to be operational on Rue de Bragança (Hollerich), Rue Sigismond (Bonnevoie), Rue Nicolas Clasen (Kirchberg), Place de Liège (Belair) and Place St Willibrord (Bonnevoie). Moreover, the existing terminals have recently been integrated into the Chargy system.
All charging terminals in the network are equipped with a uniform payment method by means of the Chargy / mKaart multifunctional chip card, which has the same functionality as a Verkéiersverbond mobility card. Upon contracting with a charging service provider, the user will have access to the terminals via their mKaart Chargy and they will be able to consult their electric charges, locate the charging stations and make a reservation of an online loading point by their computer or the mobile application on the my.chargy.lu platform.
The website chargy.lu, featuring all the information on the Chargy network, has been put online in collaboration with all the distribution system operators: Electris, the City of Ettelbruck, Sudstroum.
