Kungsleden installs charging stations in Kista

Kungsleden AB (publ) installs 17 charging stations in the properties Kista One and Hornafjord 1 close to Kista Galleria. The company hereby contributes to charging of electric and plug-in hybrids in Kista. The investment is a natural part of Kungsleden's sustainability efforts.

Kungsleden has ordered the charging stations from the charging operator EWAYS and they will be available for both Kungsleden’s tenants and the public.

The number of chargeable vehicles is steadily increasing in Sweden and in May passed 20,000, according to the electric power industry association Power Circle. But in order for the demand for hybrid and electric cars to really take off, the charging infrastructure must be developed and expanded. For Kungsleden it is a natural step to help achieve this by investing in charging stations.

”By making it easier for both our tenants and the public to switch from fossil fuels to electricity in their cars, we contribute to a sustainable development. This is an important part of our sustainability work, which includes to inspire others and to develop customer offerings with a sustainability advantage”, says Maria Sandell, Sustainability Manager at Kungsleden.

When the charging stations in Kista are in place and evaluated, Kungsleden has the possibility to install similar solutions in other property clusters.
