Sustainable mobility concepts

Around 70% of the world's population will live in cities in 2050. This will lead to major challenges, particularly with regard to mobility and city planning. In addition to that cars will also remain an important part of the mobility mix. From 2014 to 2020, the number of vehicles in Europe increased from 224.2 million to 250.4 million - and the trend is continuing, as shown by the rising number of registrations.
With innovative concepts, a focus on sustainability and a commitment to digitalization, Best in Parking delivers efficient and sustainable solutions that counteract both land sealing and CO2 emissions.

In light of the rapid shift to fully electrified powertrains - in Europe, 78% of vehicle sales are expected to be electric or hybrid cars by 2030 - Best in Parking has successively expanded the number of available e-charging stations.
Best in Parking already offers 463 e-charging points in its parking garages. In light of the ongoing shift to e-mobility, the Group plans to significantly expand its network of
charging stations for electric vehicles and, where possible, to operate them with self-generated solar energy.

Shared mobility services will also continue to grow in importance and could be another opportunity for parking operators.

E-Charging

  • Currently 463 e-charging points in operation, with expansion to 1,000 points planned by 2025
  • Costs are settled in one payment process together with the parking ticket or via the Bmove app

Photvoltaic systems

  • Renewable energy generation to power the sites and e-charging stations
  • 1 site in operation, further 5 sites planned
