The services and infrastructure designed for electric vehicles represent a fast-growing, fast-changing market. In order to enable its customers to efficiently operate in it, Rexel develops high value-added solutions. In 2016, at the Swedish Schneider Electric HQ near Stockholm, Rexel Energy Solutions implemented a customized installation: a solar charging station for electric vehicles that uses the entire electrical network of the building like a virtual energy storage unit. When there are no electric vehicles charging, the electricity produced by the solar panels is stored or used to power the HQ offices, from lighting to computers. When a vehicle is plugged in, the stored energy is redirected to the charging station via the electrical network. The car can therefore be 100% recharged, with no carbon footprint, even in winter.
