Hungarian start-up will supply green energy to e-charger station at Prologis Park Budapest-Harbor

Prologis, Inc., the global leader in logistics real estate, today announced a successful pilot with Platio, a Hungarian start-up that provides aesthetic and space-saving renewable energy systems by integrating high-performance solar cells into sidewalk paving elements made of recycled plastic.  

Prologis Park Budapest-Harbor has become the first logistics park in the world to integrate this green technology into its daily operations.

The paving elements, which total 4.7 square meters, are built into the sidewalk near Prologis Park Budapest-Harbor’s electric car charging station. In sunlight, the 720 Wp system provides the station with green energy; when the station is empty, the energy supplies a nearby office building.

At Prologis, sustainability is central to what we do—more than that, it is part of our organisational DNA. We implement numerous green solutions already in our logistics buildings and with an eye on further innovation we dedicate special care to trialling potential future technologies like this renewable energy source from Platio. Our customers know that working with Prologis can help them run their operations efficiently and more sustainably.

László Kemenes, senior vice president and country manager, Prologis Hungary

It is important for us to find key partners who support innovative technologies and can give us a chance to try new fields of applications. With the help of Prologis, we managed to install our first solution for EV charging stations, which is a significant milestone for us and part of our mission to contribute to e-mobility.

Miklós Illyés, co-founder of Platio
