Eldrive Romania has started installing charging stations for electric cars in the parking lots of shopping centers owned by the Austrian real estate group Supernova. The partnership started with charging stations located in Pitesti, Bucharest (Pantelimon, Alexandriei, Lujerului), Bacau, Constanta and Drobeta-Turnu Severin.
By 8th of September 2023, 8 charging stations were already put into use in Supernova Pitesti shopping complex, which can simultaneously serve up to 10 electric cars, respectively 6 stations in Bucharest (Cora Pantelimon parking lot), which can simultaneously charge 8 electric vehicles. Similar configurations are proposed for the following sites, designed according to the requirements of users in the area and adapted to the available space and technical conditions.
“Supernova Group supports on several levels the transition to a greener future”, said Markus Pinggera, Managing Director of Supernova Group, and the partnership with Eldrive Romania is one of these components. The Supernova Group has been active in real estate for over 20 years. In addition to its activities in Romania, Supernova is present in its home country Austria, Croatia, Slovenia and Slovakia. The Supernova Group has started the implementation of the Green Energy Project, through which it aims to optimize business practices and achieve full carbon neutrality by 2028. In Austria, Croatia and Slovenia, Supernova already owns 27 PV projects.
