The First Solar-Powered Electric Car Charging Stations in Sofia, Bulgaria

A Model of a Solar Airplane that Can Fly during Day and Night

A1 Co., Ltd. and BIES Ltd. opened the first Solar-Powered Electric Car Charging Stations in Sofia on 06.1.2012. The principle of operation of the station is simple - use of solar panels to collect solar energy. The connection between electric cars and batteries is performed by a special module. Electric cars in Bulgaria are still very few. According to experts, however, in 2012 a boom in the purchasing of such cars is expected. The Bulgarian government promises special preferences for the car owners.


A1 Co., Ltd. develops also electric power trains and modifies standard vehicles into electric ones. The company will participate in the 8th Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy Exhibition to be held 28-30 March 2012 in Sofia, Bulgaria.

For the first time a model of a solar airplane ‘Solar Impulse' will be presented by Solvay Bulgaria. This is the first aircraft in the world that can fly during day and night without fuel and emissions released.

The parallel Congress will provide the attendees with the latest updates, perspectives and good practices related to the EE & RES Financing, Biomass Resources and Bio energy. A new accent in the program will be the 1st PV Discussion Forum 'Photovoltaics'.
