ZEUS, the leading Irish micromobility provider, is launching a new pilot project: solar powered wireless e-scooter charging. This project aims to showcase the immense potential of sustainable micromobility and drive the adoption of eco-friendly transportation solutions.
As part of this pioneering initiative, ZEUS scooters will be able to charge automatically at three Zolar solar charging stations. Strategically located at transfer points for multimodal travel. The selection process was guided by a comprehensive study conducted by the city in 2021, which revealed that individuals are more inclined to utilize e-scooters frequently if they are sustainable and readily available.
With almost three years of active presence in Regensburg, ZEUS has seamlessly integrated into the city’s transport ecosystem, becoming a highly valued provider of micromobility solutions. This partnership further solidifies ZEUS’ commitment to enhancing sustainable transportation options and contributing to the overall well-being of the community.
Damian Young, ZEUS CEO, said “The Zolar stations are a game-changer for the way e-scooters are charged. At ZEUS, we are committed to revolutionizing urban transportation and promoting sustainable micromobility solutions.
“This project not only showcases the potential of clean energy”, he continued, “but also demonstrates our dedication to providing innovative, eco-friendly options for urban commuters. We are paving the way towards a greener and more sustainable future.”
In addition to the solar charging infrastructure, ZEUS will introduce its latest generation of e-scooters, the Z2, to the streets of Regensburg. Packed with innovative features, the Z2 offers a superior riding experience, including pneumatic tires for smooth navigation on cobblestones, indicating turn signals for enhanced safety, a larger battery for extended range and a convenient smartphone holder. These advancements exemplify ZEUS’ dedication to continuously improving the quality and functionality of their micromobility offerings.
