Ubitricity / electrive / Die Welt

Berlin start-up ubitricity, which upgrades existing street lights to electric car charging stations, has won New York’s Local Climate Action Tech Competition. Ubitricity’s technology could be instrumental in helping New York achieve its climate action goal while simplifying the needs of electric vehicle users and future adopters, said Jeremy M. Goldberg, deputy chief technology officer at the New York mayor's office. The German company has already taken an order in London and sources told EV magazine electrive that the city of Berlin is currently considering the roll-out of ubitricity technology, Chris Randall reports. Complicated local and EU regulations have been a major hurdle for the company in Germany, even though ubitricity offers a very cheap way to increase the number of charging points, according to Nikolaus Doll and Daniel Wetzel in Die Welt.
