ECS, Electric Charging Station | Galp Energia
The ECS from Galp Energia is the first European electric charging station in a traditional fuel gas station from a fuel and petroleum driven company. It is he indeed the first step towards energy system for personal transportation: a landmark for the times of changing ahead. 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.
