SOLARWATT has teamed up with Centregreat Group to develop solar-power electric vehicle (EV) carports with built-in battery packs. The German manufacturer’s solar glass-glass photovoltaic panels will be integrated into the off-the-shelf structure, which will be capable of charging four vehicles in daylight hours. Containerised high-capacity battery packs will sit in the central cabinet and will charge during low demand, increasing the load-balancing capacity of the system. South Wales-based transport infrastructure and engineering company Centregreat Group has developed the system with help from Swansea University’s solar-focused SPECIFIC Innovation and Knowledge Centre.
