BMW DesignworksUSA Developed Garage With Solar Panels To Charge Electric Cars

The latest project signed by DesignworksUSA is a garage with solar panels, dedicated to vehicles with electric propulsion. The garage uses BMW’s DesginworkUSA cutting edge technology and innovative design for a premium solution that complements the range of BMW i models.

The DesignworksUSA garage concept in order to achieve a harmonious whole with BMW models took over the characteristic elements of the BMW i style, and at the same time has given special attention in the choice of materials, in terms of design and color. The materials used in the construction of the garage and its solar modules stress the holistic concept’s sustainability.

This garage was designed specifically for the BMW i3 and BMW i8 and is officially called “solar carport”. It is constructed of environmentally friendly materials such as bamboo wood, but uses avant-garde materials like carbon fiber. Bamboo is considered a highly sustainable starting material due to its fast growth. For the generation of electricity, high-grade glass-on-glass solar modules are used.

The ceiling is made ​​up of a series of solar panels which generate electricity for the BMW i Wallbox Pro system. This system allows the monitoring of electricity used to charge the car and provides an analysis of the charging process. If the sun is hidden in the clouds, the system allows the BMW Solar Carport to connect to the classic electricity network.
