Euripe: CG bags order to supply electric vehicle charging stations

Will supply EV charging stations to Spain’s IBIL

The Automation arm of CG, earlier known as Crompton Greaves, ZIV Metering Solutions, has bagged an order to supply IBIL, the Spanish electric vehicle charging operator, with 90 Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations.

The IBIL order helps showcase CG’s capabilities in transportation and its strength in the Smart Grid space.

CG Executive Vice-President & President of Automation Norberto Santiago said, “EVs will play an important role in the electricity network of the future and help meet important challenges such as Europe’s 20-20-20 objective, wherein the continent aims to reduce CO2 by 20%, source 20% of energy from renewable sources, and lower energy use by 20%. CG is an important player in this promising market.”

According to a report, by 2025, 35% of all cars sold will be electric, 25% of which will be hybrids and 10% pure EVs. These vehicles require an accessible and reliable charging station network which only a Smart Grid can provide.

A Smart Grid balances the flow of power through the electrical network. Its intelligent systems communicate with each other to manage and compensate surges and dips in demand for power, thus enhancing system efficiency. The increasing popularity of EVs – especially in the US and the European Union – is driving increased and more rapid deployment of Smart Grid technologies.
