European Business Awards for the Environment ( Solar Thermal Magazine ) – Envision Solar International, Inc. (“Envision Solar,” or the “Company”), the leading renewable energy Media and Branding product company announced today that its EV ARC™ product, together with it’s European partner Aconfort, have been selected by the Organization for the European Business Awards for the Environment.
The selection was made on World Environment Day in Spain at an event attended by their Royal Highnesses the Princes of Asturias, the Ministers of the Environment and Agriculture and ninety companies.
The future King and Queen of Spain, Prince Felipe of Borbon and Princess Leticia Ortiz gave the awards.
Envision’s partner, Aconfort, was selected as the Spanish distributor of EV ARC, the world’s first transportable EV charging station which is entirely energized by clean and renewable solar energy.
Aconfort will display EV ARC™ chargers at the Communidad de Andalucia where businesses will be able to test the product and EVs charged by it.
“Thanks to these awards and our exposure at the Communidad de Andalucia, EV ARC can be a fountain of renewable energy for EVs for all of Europe,” said Aquilino Ornia, CEO of Aconfort.
It will resonate with the leading environmentally conscious businesses and governments. I’m sure we are going to have a big win with it.”
We would like to thank their Majesties Prince Felipe of Borbon and Princess Leticia Ortiz for their gracious recognition,” said Desmond Wheatley, President and CEO of Envision Solar. “EV ARC is an exportable solution which is incredibly valuable anywhere that EVs or E-motorcycles will be used. These events and our partnership with Aconfort will open huge markets in Spain and the rest of Europe for our company without diluting our US efforts. We look forward to fulfilling multiple orders in Europe.
Invented and manufactured in the US, the EV ARC™ fits inside a parking space and generates around 16kWhrs/day that are stored in the on-board batteries. The system’s solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak™, which enables the array to follow the sun, generating 18 to 25% more electricity than a fixed array.
IHS Automotive forecasts a 67% increase in electrified vehicle production globally in 2014, especially driven by strong EV growth in Europe.
