KT, Power Cube and Seoul plan more portable EV chargersKT signed a memorandum of understanding with the Seoul Metropolitan Government to set up 10,000 portable charging systems for electric vehicles (EV) by 2015. The agreement aims to build a total of 100,000 such systems by 2018 to make Seoul one of the world’s most EV friendly cities.
Also joining the partnership is Power Cube, a company with expertise in electric car charging.
Seoul will provide locations while the carrier and Power Cube will set up portable sets to power electric vehicles.
Unlike fixed charging systems, the portable systems do not take up much space.
“By establishing the charging systems, we have eliminated a major hurdle facing EV drivers: charging,” said Kim seong-hoon of the smart energy division at KT.
