Urban Green Energy and GE has presented the world’s first fully integrated wind-powered EV charging station, the Sanya Skypump, which provides a really useful service and cares for the environment at the same time. The Skypump incorporates both the energy production capacity of UGE’s 4K wind turbine and the EV charging capability of the GE Durastation in a single unit. This charging station houses all of the required electrical systems within the tower. Having been recently  installed in Barcelona, Spain by UGE Iberia, the Spanish branch of New York-based Urban Green Energy at Cespa’s global headquarters near Barcelona, Skypumps will be soon installed in the U.S. and Australia at shopping centres, universities and other locations. Marketing director of GE Energy Management’s Industrial Solutions business in Europe, Charles Elazar claims, “GE is launching a family of electric vehicle charging systems in Europe offering domestic and commercial users a range of easy-to-use, flexible systems to help make electric vehicles a practical, everyday reality.”
