Design 2021 form Green Good Design.

Cornerstone Technologies is moving one step ahead by taking the production of EV Charger one step further. While the competitors are still busy figuring out how an EV Charger should function to meet the market’s needs, Cornerstone Technologies has produced an EV Charger that addresses the aesthetic values of it. Chargic has been designed by taking its shape from the everyday dry cell battery, Chargic projects a subliminal visual cue for EV users to power up. Its curved edges cleverly hide the unit’s depth; the unit’s top and bottom obscure the cabling, while its rounded front gives it an elegant, simple aesthetic. This simple and uncluttered facade is complemented by subtle light-emitting diode (“LED”) backlighting from between the panels, hinting at the power within the unit. It gives users constant peace of mind by keeping them up to speed with their charging status: green – ready to charge; blue – charging; and red – an alert to check status. It’s designed to be convenient, safe, and easy to use – encouraging widespread usage.

Chargic encourages more people to choose emissions-free vehicles by offering them the ultimate convenience. Chargic carries a universal socket and various payment options, giving emission-free vehicles a hassle-free hook up to its holistic charging system. Its green credentials are boosted by the fact that it could be made using 30-50% recyclable polycarbonate; it is also waterproof and dust-proof, meaning no matter the weather conditions or climate, Chargic can be used for all car brands.

Chargic is a very good choice for developers who are planning for the EV enable car parks, we are producing Chargic with polycarbonate, it is versatile, high impact resistance, durable, also the production costs can be kept lower. We are truly proud with this invention which brings good design to your car parks and at the same time keeping the same quality functions to meet our customers’ needs,”

added Mr. Lawson Lau, the Executive Director of Cornerstone Technologies.

Each unit’s built-in camera functions as both a quick response (“QR”) code scanner – to authenticate users and activate the charger – as well as a Licence Plate Recognition System, proven to have helped car park operators manage their car parks efficiently. The charger has been designed in such a way that it can be easily mounted on a pedestal or wall, and its dust- and waterproof design ensures users’ connections will be safe from the elements.

Once a vehicle plugs in, the Central Management System takes over, connecting users to the entire network through its intricate software. Its Load Management System enables car parks to maintain the same electrical load while optimizing their power supply, meaning more chargers can be installed and used at maximum efficiency. Mapped out in Hong Kong and made for a carbon-free planet, this sleek and stylish charger makes the lives of EV users easier as well as driving the green revolution forwards into the future.

Chargic is not only an EV Charging made chic, Chargic is produced by Cornerstone Technologies without compromising its functions fully supported by the intricate charging system.

“Chargic” addresses the aesthetic values and outstanding quality of functions.

HONG KONG, 19th April, 2021 – Cornerstone Technologies Holdings Limited (“Cornerstone Technologies”), a leading innovator of environmental and sustainability solutions, today announced details of five government projects to add 400 charging points in urban and rural locations across Hong Kong. Two of the projects were funded by Hong Kong SAR government’s initiative to invest HK$120 million to extend the total number of chargers in the city to 1,700 by 2022. These projects reinforce Cornerstone Technologies’ commitment to accelerating electric vehicles (EV) adoption by providing accessible and reliable charging facilities to Hong Kongers.

“Leading a sustainable lifestyle is growing popular in Hong Kong, and EV adoption is key to helping people reduce their carbon footprint. Under the Hong Kong Roadmap on the Popularisation of EVs introduced last month, Cornerstone Technologies will continue to play an integral role in promoting EVs in Hong Kong. As a major player in the ecosystem, we will continue to engage new partners to explore sustainability projects that will benefit both the public and private sectors,” said Lawson Lau, Executive Director of Cornerstone Technologies.

As one of the first EV charging service providers in the city, Cornerstone Technologies strives to provide quality charging products and one-stop solutions tailored to the local EV ecosystem. Partnering with various Hong Kong SAR government departments, 400 additional charging points have been installed in public car parks, recreational venues, rural locations and shopping complexes across Hong Kong.

    • Public Recreational Facilities
      Working with the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) and the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department, Cornerstone Technologies will be building up to 90 charging points covering 19 public recreational facilities under the Leisure and Cultural Service Department, including sports grounds, children’s playgrounds, swimming pools, as well as public beaches.
    • Government Car Parks Partnering with the EPD, 153 chargers from Cornerstone Technologies were installed in the Kwai Fong and Kennedy Town Government car parks. Cornerstone Technologies’ Load Management System (LMS) was deployed in the Kwai Fong location to effectively manage electricity supply and accommodate additional chargers without the need to increase electricity supply. The LMS was also the first in the city to be equipped with Even Distribution, Dynamic Change and Fail-safe Mode, ensuring fair, safe and reliable charging services for users.
    • Remote Locations
      To expand the geographical coverage of charging facilities, Cornerstone Technologies installed charging points in remote locations to serve cross-border commuters and residents on Lantau island.
      • Liantang / Heung Yuen Wai Boundary Control Point As part of the Government’s pollution reduction programs Park-and-Ride (PnR) scheme, 120 charging points were installed at the border for EV drivers to park and charge their vehicles before crossing the border via public transport.
      • Mui Wo, Lantau Island Cornerstone Technologies has also leveraged its expertise to install chargers for the Mui Wo outdoor charging facility with safety and space-optimization in mind. Three chargers have been mounted on a single pole to save space and chargers were installed at disabled parking spaces.
    • Shopping Complex An EV charging station was installed at the Domain Shopping Mall in Kwun Tong, the largest shopping mall under the Housing Department. Cornerstone Technologies will continue to partner with the Housing Department to cover as much housing and shopping complexes as possible.

These additional charging points add on to the existing 700 units installed by Cornerstone Technologies across Hong Kong.
