Siemens Smart Infrastructure is providing the charging infrastructure and cloud-based user management software for new Italian e-mobility service On. The system provides the basis for On’s integrated electric car, bike and scooter offer in central Rome.
Siemens has already begun installation of 120 of its compact Sicharge AC22 charging stations. These can simultaneously charge two electric vehicles using 22kW outlets, additionally each station has two 230 Volt AC power sockets for e-bikes and e-scooters. The first 23 charging stations are already in place with the rest following through the year.
Charging and billing is managed through Siemens’ cloud-based E-Car Operation Center software. This integrates with On’s app to show users the location, availability and operational status of charging points in real-time.
“We are convinced we can make a meaningful contribution to Rome’s Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan,” said Alessandro Di Meo, Managing director at On. “With this new innovative, efficient and sustainable approach, citizens and visitors can use shared e-bikes, e-scooters and e-cars.”
“Switching to electric vehicles is only one part of the transformation to future urban mobility,” adds Jean-Christoph Heyne, head of Future Grids at Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “It is also about providing flexibility and availability. Connected charging infrastructure, comprising hardware and software, creates the basis for such services.”
