ChargeNode’s pioneering charging technology is helping develop the infrastructure for electric vehicles in Sweden and accelerating the country’s transition toward greener mobility. Using low-carbon aluminium for its centralized charging units product is an added benefit. ChargeNode's technology enables many vehicles to share a centralized charging unit that distributes charging based on parking time and charging needs. Its innovative solution is an aluminium duct with integrated charging sockets that is mounted like a railing along car parks, and which provides charging to all parking spaces. In this way, it is unnecessary to install expensive charging boxes in every parking space.The Swedish company also makes its systems more climate-friendly through its choice of materials, in this case, by using the low-carbon aluminium products Hydro CIRCAL and Hydro REDUXA.The solution from Hydro consists of a duct with associated cover and brackets that hold all cables in place. The main profiles are made with Hydro CIRCAL, a material that contains at least 75% recycled aluminium scrap. By recycling aluminium that already has lived its life in other products, Hydro drastically reduces energy consumption in the production phase while the material itself maintains the highest quality.The brackets are manufactured using Hydro REDUXA, an aluminium product that has been manufactured entirely with renewable energy sources, such as hydropower. Its maximum carbon footprint of 4.0 kg CO2 per kg of aluminium produced, corresponds to one-fourth of the global average.
