We enable e-mobility - with a charging point at really every parking space

Centralized and scalable charging infrastructure solution, ideal for day parkers and fleet operators

Grid-friendly and intelligent distribution of the available total power through dynamic and phase-individual load management

Minimal maintenance costs due to central arrangement of the components

chargeBIG is a corporate startup from MAHLE that provides centralized and scalable charging infrastructure for day parkers, fleet operators, and for use cases with 18 to 100 or more electrified parking lots. The charging solution relies on intelligent single-phase and dynamic charging power between 2.3 – 7.2kW to charge many vehicles in parallel at one location. The chargeBIG charging infrastructure consists of a central charging cabinet and charging points with permanently fixed type-2 charging cables at the parking lot.

BENEFITS AT A GLANCE

The chargeBIG charging hardware is very cost-effective. The investments include the charging equipment at the parking spot including a permanently fixed type-2 charging cable, the sub-distribution for up to 36 charging points in the form of the industrially manufactured charging cabinet and the central load management.

Scalable – Large scale electrification of parking spots is possible

Cost-effective – Smaller investment in charging hardware and operation as well as reduced costs for power grid expansion

Grid-friendly – Contribution to grid stabilization due to intelligently controlled charging points

User-friendly – Easy to use due to fixed charging cable and activation via app

A customer reference from chargeBIG

More than 100 charging points from chargeBIG to supply e-vehicles on the tarmac, in the internal fleet and in public parking garages

Strong reduction of costs compared to conventional charging solutions

Airport Stuttgart

With the investment in a chargeBIG charging system, Stuttgart Airport is relying on a cost-effective solution from MAHLE for the electrification of employee and fleet parking spaces, making optimal use of its existing infrastructure instead of having to invest in large-scale network expansion.

Activation via QR-code scan and billing via smartphone or web app

Activation of the charging point via QR-code scan

Payment process via input of credit card data or PayPal data

MAHLE announces fast-charging solution for electric cars

At the IAA Mobility 2021, the MAHLE technology group announced that it is expanding its intelligent charging solutions for electric cars. With the newly introduced chargeBIG Power charging management system, the nearly 1,000 chargeBIG charging points that have been installed for long-term parking are an important addition to fast charging with outputs of up to 750 kW. chargeBIG Power builds on the proven chargeBIG principle: the charging management system can be economically integrated into the existing infrastructure; particularly on long-distance routes, where there is still a lack of fast-charging options. Thanks to the intelligent control of the load distribution in the power grid, the charging system enables as many electric vehicles as possible to be charged from the available power supply at the same time. By selecting the tariff, the user can order the charging capacity that fits the electric vehicle and travel plan. And the charging points are very easy to operate.

Realization of the chargeBIG charging solution at Marquard & Bahls AG in Hamburg

On June 29th, the chargeBIG charging solution was realized at Marquard & Bahls AG in Hamburg. Marquard & Bahls chose the future-proof charging solution from MAHLE, because chargeBIG can be easily expanded and complies with legal requirements of the calibration law. Currently, 32 charging points are already installed on two parking levels, which means almost a quarter of all employee parking spaces are electrified. In the future, additional 32 charging points can be added without incurring any further costs for the sub-distribution cabinets.

Mayor visits new charging points at MAHLE plant Lorch

On 13 July, Marita Funk, mayor of the city of Lorch and the neighbouring municipalities, visited the MAHLE plant in Lorch. Mrs. Funk was welcomed by the plant manager Jochen Scholz and the chargeBIG team. The personal acquaintance began with a look into the history of the plant, which dates back to 1954. Afterwards, they visited the recently built charging infrastructure for electric cars at the site. The potential cooperation between the city of Lorch and chargeBIG in the area of the public charging – for example at the local train station – was also discussed. The visit ended with an informative tour through the plant production areas of aluminium, sheet metal and plastic. In Lorch, a wide variety of technical parts, assemblies and end products for the combustion engine and for new fields of e-mobility are manufactured across all three material areas.
