A landmark for the changing
times to come
The ECS from Galp Energia was the first European electric charging station in a traditional fuel gas station from a fuel and petroleum driven company.
It is indeed the first step towards an energy system for personal transportation: a landmark for the changing times to come.
This is the leitmotiv for the ECS design program. The ECS design is about a pioneer’s statement; a proud move towards the new needs of a changing society.
A clear message of commitment, to the customer’s life quality improvement, from the market leader in hydrocarbon fuel production and distribution.
The design is inspired by a human body jumping for joy, celebrating the arrival of the eco-friendly energy: electricity now available for personal transportation.
That’s the starting point for the sculptural concept of this object -this mass that pops-up from the ground as the legs and torso of a body with the rising arms reaching for the sun.
The ECS program will cover a wide range of applications from fast charging terminals at gas stations to standard charging spots in parking lots, shopping or condo parking, office buildings and private homes.
