This new parking garage in Hagastaden, one of Stockholm's largest urban development areas, has three underground floors offering parking for residents and visitors, and every one of the parking spaces is being equipped with a CTEK Chargestorm Connected 2 EV charger, supported by CTEK’s Nanogrid load-balacing solution.
Norra Stationsparken is Stockholm’s seventh garage offering 100 per cent of spaces with EV charging and, once completed, will be one of the largest EV installations in any parking facility in the whole of Europe.
Cecilia Routledge, Global Director Energy and Facilities for CTEK said: ”An investment of this size really shows that Stockholm is leading Europe's capitals in supporting the switch to fossil-free transport. For CTEK, it is also proof that our multi-year collaboration with Stockholm Parking continues to develop. Business and government need to work closely with each other on mobility issues if we are to be able to achieve our set climate goals.”
The City of Stockholm is seeing rapidly increasing demand for EV charging stations, and this latest installation is part of the city's work to electrify traffic. By 2026, Stockholm Parking aims to offer EV charging in all its garages, and is targeting more than 100,000 new charging stations for electric cars by 2030. This would equate to one EV charge point for every 16 people living in Stockholm County1!
Hagastaden currently has 6,000 new homes and 50,000 jobs and is located in the area between Stockholm and nearby Solna. By 2030, this area will have been transformed into a completely new district with a mix of apartments, workplaces, cultural attractions, green areas, world-leading research and highly specialised healthcare.
1 Current population of Stockholm County (Stockholm City and surrounding urban areas) is 1.6 million (source Wikipedia).
