- About 90% of its public car parks (61 locations in total) will have charging infrastructures for electric vehicles.
- These are all universal, semi-rapid charging stations, which are available 24 hours a day to provide parking and recharging services.
- Users will also have the possibility of buying a bundled parking and recharging pass.
Endesa X, Endesa's new business line that offers value-added services and innovative technological solutions in the world of energy, and Parkia, a private underground car park operator in Spain, have reached an agreement to promote electric mobility in our country and facilitate public access to electric vehicle charging.
In the initial phase of the arrangement, 127 charging points will be installed in 61 car parks in 27 Spanish provinces, more than half of all the country's provinces. This means that around 90% of the company's car parks will have electric vehicle charging stations, available around the clock. Featuring semi-rapid technology (up to 22kW), they can charge vehicles to around 80% of battery capacity in one hour, which is less than the average time spent in Parkia's car parks.
Endesa X and Parkia will satisfy customer demand, ensuring that charging is no longer an obstacle to joining the electric mobility world. The companies are offering the public a range of solutions that will be joined by new urban mobility options in the coming months:
1. Occasional charging:
Users will be able to park and leave their cars charging in any Parkia car park with a charging area. They will pay their parking fees as usual (by taking a ticket and paying the cashier or machine) while the cost of the charge will be managed using the Endesa X app, JuicePass.
2. Charging pass:
Users can purchase parking passes and add a 225kWh or 500kWh voucher to consume within six months, both at discounted prices. This voucher is enough to travel 200 or 440 kilometres* per month, respectively, with an electric car. When you purchase your monthly parking pass (on-site or through the PARKIA website), you will receive a code to activate the kilowatt bonus in the Endesa X JuicePass charging app to use whenever you activate a charger in the Endesa X network, in Parkia car parks and throughout the Endesa X charging network.
How do I activate the bonus in Juice Pass?
The Endesa X charging app - JuicePass - is available free for IOS and Android operating systems. Users can register in the app using their emails or can save time by signing up with their Facebook or Google profiles.
Once registered, users can activate their kilowatt bonus codes, monitor their charges in real time, view their consumption and see kWh used.
JuicePass also gives EV drivers access to the entire public access charging network that Endesa X is deploying in Spain for charging outside Parkia's car parks. The app displays all the chargers available on the map and finds the best route to the chosen charging point. You can also book it, and start and stop charging, etc.
The agreement between Endesa and Parkia is proof of the company’s firm commitment to promote electric mobility as a tool to strengthen the fight against climate change in the context of the energy transition and contribute to the success of the country’s sustainability and economic development objectives.
