The first photolinera that works with 100% renewable energy


Little by little, electric cars are opening a gap in the market.- For this reason it is also necessary
facility development and charging points, especially aimed at fast charging of vehicles on the road, which will make it easier to travel long distances.

This is how the Spanish group Eranovum sees it, which has announced the start-up of the first “photolinera” in Spain with an investment of 500,000 euros, after guaranteeing financing of the
Plan Relocations III under the European Union’s Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan.

The main purpose of building this emission-free vehicle fleet is to contribute to the
decarbonisation of the sector of transport, which accounts for 40% of global C02 emissions, with a proposal to charge electric vehicles in a completely clean way.

The facility will be located on the N-3 near Alarcón (Cuenca), and will enable ultra-fast charging of electric vehicles with 100% renewable energy supplied directly on its own consumption, without tolls or additional costs. Is about
a unique concept as the charging station, unlike charging stations, is completely disconnected from the electricity grid and has all the necessary power to charge electric vehicles that need it ultra-fast.

The photo line, which
will enable savings of 2,000 tons of CO2 per year it will have four ultra-fast +240 kW charging stations, until eight in 2032. In addition, the facility has a 300 kWh storage system that uses second-hand batteries from electric vehicles to keep the station operational overnight.

Olmedilla and Sabinar, who will provide the energy for the photo line, are part of a portfolio of projects in the province of Cuenca that
a capacity of more than 400 MWp. Eranovum, together with its international partners Noy Fund and Nofar Energy, has committed an investment of more than 300 million euros to develop and build this project.

the plants of
Olmedilla and Sabinari, which are already connected to the grid, have a total installed capacity of 169 and 155 megawatt peak (MWp) respectively. It is one of the largest operational facilities in Spain with a total combined capacity of 324 MWp, a volume sufficient to power more than 200,000 households.

Both plants will prevent the release of approximately 260,000 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere per year, a figure that will increase
up to 320,000 tons when it becomes operational in early 2023.
