GE Wattstation

Challenge

In order to secure freedom of mobility for everyone, we need to limit our reliance on fossil fuels, and support the continuing adoption of electric vehicles.

How do we change the way people use and see electric vehicles?

WattStation is an electric-car-charger that is as durable as street furniture, as visible as a light beacon, and as beautiful as street greenery.

By communicating wirelessly with digital platforms and mobile devices, users will be able to remotely locate, operate and monitor the unit.
