Electricity columns Powy Two Valleys shopping center

The first activations are underway following the agreement between Powy, a provider of innovative electric vehicle charging systems, and the Retail Development Solution team of CBRE, the world's leading real estate consultancy, for the electrification of at least 6 shopping centers spread across the country, from North to South Italy.

The first activation was carried out at the parking lot of La Cittadella shopping center in Casale Monferrato, in the province of Alessandria, to be followed by other activations at:

  • The Two Valleys in Pinerolo (TO);
  • Campo dei Fiori in Gavirate (VA);
  • Borgo Mercato in Borgo San Dalmazzo (CN);
  • Mongolfiera Grand Shopping in Molfetta (BA)

In addition to these facilities, there is also a Fast charging infrastructure at Il Gallo Shopping Center in Galliate (NO), again under the supervision of CBRE's Retail Development Solution team, but where the agreement in place is between Powy and the Public Administration.

The new electric charging points will make it possible to offer an efficient service that meets the diverse needs of both customers who visit La Cittadella Shopping Center and the passing public. There will be two types of chargers available: AC Quick Charge for charging up to 22 kW of power, for all customers who plan to stay in the Mall for more than an hour, and DC Fast Charge chargers for powers up to 100 kW - that are able to recharge the vehicle quickly during short stops. Charging points will be available 24/7, allowing charging to the public even at night.

"We are beyond proud that an international Group of the caliber of CBRE, with which we share intentions and values, has chosen us for the projects mentioned above as collaborators to develop such a major plan for the electrification of the properties it manages. A plan that starts in Italy and that we hope to extend soon to the rest of Europe. In fact, together we are going to develop a service that will generate value not only for owners of electric vehicles, but also for companies in shopping centers, which will have at their disposal a premium service that will allow them to attract new customers." - comments Federico Fea, CEO of Powy - "We are writing the future of mobility because, on the one hand, with our business model we are offering companies smart, customizable and innovative services, and on the other hand, we are improving the user experience by offering charging stalls suitable for all needs."

The six charging points at La Cittadella Shopping Center are powered by 100% certified renewable energy and are part of the public electric vehicle charging network that Powy is building in partnership with the Stellantis Group. As with the entire network, these points are available for charging all electric vehicles and will provide exclusive conditions for Stellantis vehicle owners.
