Libre Courant is a range of charging stations for electric vehicles, oriented towards electric car-sharing systems in modern cities. The stations can be integrated into any environment and allow quick, intuitive and safe charging. The roof protects the charging space from rain and snow, but can be easily removed to fit into a curbside parking. The project means to limit the intrusive effect of urban furniture into the environment and combines organic and functional aesthetics. Read Less

Libre Courant
Energy source for urban electric mobility
Libre Courant est une réflexion sur l’expérience de la recharge des véhicules électriques (VÉ) et la valorisation du site de stationnement urbain dédié au service. Le projet met l’accent sur la versatilité de l’espace de recharge, qui permet diverses configurations d’aménagement, selon l’espace disponible et l’environnement contextuel. L’interface simplifiée réduit les coûts et l’encombrement tout en offrant une expérience de recharge intuitive et sécuritaire. Libre Courant présente le point de charge comme une sculpture urbaine plutôt qu’un artifice technologique.

Libre Courant is an ideation about the user experience in electric vehicle (EV) charging, and the valorization of the urban parking lot dedicated to charging. These stations are meant to be installed in streets as well as in different configurations of parking lots, and have to adapt to the available space, context, and environment.
The user interface, cost-effective and easy to use, offers an intuitive and safe charging.
Libre Courant depicts the charging station as an urban sculpture, and a great advantage for electric car-sharing companies.
