Maybe that would be another option for your next job at Mainova chargers in Frankfurt...
LOL, good one!
But really, I was thinking last night (sick!) to lease land in towns from authorities, a car park and make either:
a) residential charging: 30-40 7kW chargers in one location; people can use to charge overnight in areas with multi-unit buildings.
b) in-transit charging: 10-15 chargers, single-standard units (I don't think you'd like to wait for my Zoe to finish charging on Type 2 so you can use the Chademo head), from 22kW to 50kW or more. And a container-cafe next to it, with wi-fi. Or retool a gas station.
Access to the charging area only with smart card. Pay per kWh (Ecotricity UK charges £6 for 30 mins regardless of which car you have) and not too much either - hopefully cheaper than RWE. In case of b), I'd make a software to identify from the smart card which car the user has (car profile) and which chargers suits best and only activate those charger; and since the charger could in theory detect 80% charge for a Leaf or 99% charge in a Zoe R240, I'd allow the user 15 more minutes from that threshold and then will penalize them by charging double the parking rate in the area.
This way, I think, most of the users will find it more rewarding to move their car and allow others to charge.
Yeah, I think it'll be Mainova... LOL
