‘Smart Green Charging’ from Iberdrola is a safe, efficient and personal charging point for your electric vehicle, which guarantees energy from renewable sources.

This solution offers an all-in-one charging point for electric vehicle owners. The ‘Smart Green Charging’ service installs safe charging infrastructure in garages and parking bays, and provides identification cards and access to a charge management app for mobile devices. The app can be used to schedule and control the charging process to ensure vehicles are ready when needed and keep energy bills down. In addition, Iberdrola certifies that all electricity comes from 100% renewable sources, meaning that users can get around with zero emissions and also help reduce power generation emissions.

The charging infrastructure is compatible with any type of vehicle from full electric to plug-in hybrids. The system uses a control function for sending data between the vehicle and the charging equipment, which protects against battery overheating, sudden disconnection or charge cable breakage. Iberdrola also offers customised services to enterprises with vehicle fleets whose needs are different from household consumers.

Why you should care

Cars account for around 20% of liquid fuel demand globally. As electric vehicle ownership rises from 1.2 million in 2015 to an estimated 100 million cars by 2035, it is expected that global demand for gasoline may decrease by up to 10%. By making ownership of electric personal vehicles more accessible and convenient, Iberdrola’s solution further encourages the shift to more energy efficient and cleaner personal transportation.

How the Global Goals are addressed

Good Health and Well-Being

Urban air pollution kills up to 7 million people every year. Zero emissions electric vehicles can help to improve urban air quality and thus the health of city residents.

Affordable and Clean Energy

Increasing demand for electric vehicles coupled with a guarantee to supply 100% renewable energy will help to drive an increasing share of clean energy in electricity grids.

Climate Action

Reducing the carbon intensity of the electricity used to charge electric vehicles improves the net effect of electric vehicles on reducing CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions.
