  • 433,388€

EV Charging From Lampposts will deploy and test electric-vehicle (EV) charging stations developed by the start-up SimpleCharge. These charging stations can be easily integrated into the infrastructure of street lampposts. The charging solution will be tested in several cities in Europe, focusing on providing electric vehicle charging solutions in residential areas where there are few such charging options. The multiple newly equipped lampposts with electric-vehicle charging stations in the cities will have multiple positive impacts on the economy, local environment and social aspects. The project outcome will validate and commercialise on-street electric vehicle charging infrastructure in emerging markets where electric vehicle uptake is on the rise.


To address the lack of EV charging infrastructure on streets in areas where demand and supply are not aligned.

Main Objective

To test and commercialise a new type of EV charging station in emerging markets where EV usage is on the rise.
