Ecomobility

LAFON technologies is a committed to more environmentally friendly mobility.

LAFON Technologies has always been committed to petroleum equipment that is more environmentally friendly (overflow prevention devices, double skinned tanks, composite tanks, drip trays for fuel distributors, breakable hose connectors - just a few elements that reduce the risk of contamination) but is now applying these same principles to the field of electric mobility by applying its know-how and experience to electric vehicle charging systems.

In compliance with the green book, LAFON Technologies is assisting local authorities to respond to the electric vehicle market by proposing charging terminals that have been developed and manufactured on its ISO14001 certified French production site.

LAFON is heavily committed to the development of electro-mobility and is working to provide charging terminals that are adapted to the needs of its different clients: companies, local authorities, private citizens, major stores, highway authorities...

The availability of sufficient public charging terminals across the country is a key success factor for electro-mobility to overcome range limitations which are often no more than 200 km. Public charging terminals are essential for the future growth of electric vehicle use because they reassure drivers and allow them to 'top up' and complement full charges.

Furthermore, the large differences between vehicle models and charge types combined with rapid technological progress means that terminals must not only be compatible with the multiple models and charge types already available but must also be capable of evolving. LAFON Technologies has a deep understanding of the market and can offer charging terminals that are compatible with all types of vehicle.

The rapid installation of these systems requires investment that has to be financed by a charging service fee that is in addition to the price of the electricity (less than 2€ per 20 kW in France).
 
This requires the installation of automatic identification payment solutions operating 24/7 that are easy to use, are regional, national or international and multi-branded to facilitate their use. The interoperability of the network is the second key success factor for electric vehicles to succeed. LAFON has used state of the art technologies (web, smartphone, RFID, QR codes) to create innovative and robust solutions that allow networks to be linked and electric vehicle users and system owners to share a common system: local authorities, car park operators, traders, supermarkets, restaurants, petroleum companies...
LAFON uses SMS identification and OCPP roaming to revolutionise the distribution of mobile energy and to make territorial frontiers obsolete.

On the road to a cleaner future...
