Toledo, Spain 15 April 2021 – On April 12, Inael Electrical Systems, leader in advanced solutions in the manufacture and distribution of electrical equipment for medium and high voltage, presented the Sustainable Mobility Hub of Toledo, an innovative project based on the production and storage of 100% sustainable energy that is currently under construction.
The Sustainable Mobility Hub of Toledo is a joint project between Inael Electrical Systems and Toledo City Council, aimed at decarbonising the transport sector, which causes 40% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the region, in order to fulfil the Paris Agreement. The collaboration project is fully sponsored by regional institutions and companies.
The ‘Sustainable Mobility Hub of Toledo’ is part of the European Union’s “NextGenerationEU” recovery plan, and aims to offer a state-of-the-art, self-supplied and 100% sustainable energy facility for citizens and transport companies.
The installation consists of five modules:
– A 2 MW photovoltaic plantalready under construction by Acoeman.
– Asemi-fast, fast and ultra-fast electric charging stationfor electric vehicles and buses, which offers the customer the possibility to reduce charging times.
– Ahydrogeneration stationfor buses, vans and low-medium load trucks, which allows industrial and private vehicles for a usage of over 400 km with a very short charging time (3-10 min).
– Astorage modulewhere the energy is stored via a large battery and a H2 fuel cell and storage system, making de most of the energy surplus.
– Asoftware module, developed together with the National Hydrogen Center, based in Puertollano (Ciudad Real).
“We are very proud of this great step towards sustainable energy production and e-mobility” says Angel David Lara, CEO of Inael Electrical Systems. “This project proofs our commitment to decarbonisation and to strategic vectors such as renewable hydrogen, which are key to the transition to clean energy.
“We’d like to thank the Mayor of Toledo, Milagros Tolón, the Minister of Sustainable Development of Castilla- La Mancha, José Luis Escudero, and the Director of the National Hydrogen Center, Emilio Nieto for their presence and support in such an important milestone for the industry”.
