Pražská energetika has opened a set of eight public charging stations in the parking lot of the Prague Congress Centre, which will allow up to 15 electric cars to be charged at the same time.
This is the largest charging point in Prague.
Owners of electric cars can use one Hypercharger Alpitronic station with a capacity of 75 kW and 7 other so-called AC stations with a capacity of 22 kW.
This new urban charging hub was created thanks to the support of the Ministry of Transport. It was co-funded by the Operational Programme Transport – Metropolitan Network II project.
A set of seven AC charging stations with a capacity of 2 x 22 kW will allow charging of up to 14 electric vehicles at the same time. They are also complemented by a fast DC charging station with a capacity of 75 kW, which will enable fast charging.
“Electromobility, especially in the capital city of Prague and in urban agglomerations in general, contributes to a better environment. Pražská energetika has been investing in the construction of charging infrastructure for 10 years. We have already commissioned nearly 380 charging stations not only in Prague, but we are also building a backbone network throughout the Czech Republic,” says Pavel Elis, Chairman of the Board and CEO of PRE.
In addition, all chargers in the PREpoint network are supplied with 100% green energy from renewable sources. Payment for charging an electric car is possible by a chip or via QR code and payment gateway. It is also possible to use the chips of roaming contract partners for recharging.
For the user-friendly operation of charging stations, Pražská energetika also has a modern PREcharge mobile application, whose great advantage is the function of PREpoint charging stations search in an updated map with detailed information about each station, including their performance and current availability.
PRE Launched its First Public Charging Station in 2011
PRE is one of the pioneers in the construction of charging stations in the Czech Republic. It opened its first public charging station at the beginning of 2011 in Prague, Chodov.
At the moment, Pražská energetika has more than 370 public charging stations in its PREpoint network, where more than 740 electric vehicles can be charged at the same time.
