Electric vehicles can be customized to charge with custom-made charging

Everyone has experienced the heat from asphalt and roads after long hours in the sun. What if that energy could be used to charge and power electric cars?

Solum, a startup from Sevillian, has proposed this. It manufactures portable charging stations that can be used with all types of electric vehicles. Its primary focus is micromobility, which includes electric bikes, scooters, and electric motorcycles ...-. The tool it uses is renewable energy.

These stations have a unique feature: they use a special pavement that can produce electrical energy with less solar radiation. His calculations show that his proposal can charge 15 electric motorcycles in a space of just seven square meters.

It could be described visually as a "solar floor" - which is, it generates energy through photovoltaic cells embedded within it. You can walk and step on it. Luis Munoz and Antonio Cabrera, both graduates of Energy Engineering at the University of Seville were the ones who came up with this idea.

They have created panels made of monocrystalline silicon cells that allow for the sun's rays and energy to be captured. This floor also features anti-slip technology so people can walk through it safely.

The promoters of the product claim that it is easy to install and requires little maintenance.

Rain and breaks

Luis Munoz Lombardo is vice president of product innovation at Solum. He points out that they invented and patent a material that turns a traditional photovoltaic element into a more durable than concrete to prevent panels from breaking from rolling, vehicle and human damage and bad weather. He defends that this material is the "core" of our system, and allows them to use cutting-edge technology around the world.

Solar energy has a problem in that it cannot be stored. Also, the sun is required to convert heat into electricity. This innovative floor is ready for it. Lombardo explained that the stations are "oversized" to allow them to continue operating even when it is raining or cloudy. He also points out that the internal battery can be swapped for a fully charged one in an "exceptional" situation.

This'startup', despite its relatively short history has received numerous awards and recognitions in various competitions. These portable charging stations are currently being used in Valencia and Seville. They will be available in Madrid (The Netherlands) and Rotterdam, The Netherlands (The Netherlands) in June. They will be in Malaga, Barcelona, and Bilbao by the end the year. His next goal will be to travel to Italy.
