[EN] Smart Mobility Cluj 2019

The world is changing and events that are a normal part of everyday life in other parts of Europe, are starting to take place also in the countries that unfortunately are not so electrified as it should. In this case, I'm talking about first edition of Smart Mobility Cluj. And what can be smarter about mobility than electromobility.

Four temporary charging stations were provided by EV-Mag. At this point they have experience with this and they managed to develop an in-house solution to dynamically allocate the available charging power to stations that are in use.
We also participated in a city tour with the support of Local Police Cluj.

A few years ago when he was the prime minister of Romania I had a wrong impression about him and I apologize for that. At this event I had the chance to see that is very open to an electrical future and is actively taking actions to make this possible for Cluj.
Thank you for an excellent organization Transylvania Evolution and see you next year.Published by Marius Şerban at 15:31 on 24.06.2019 [EEST]
