Charging stations and software manufacturer and leader in mobile charging stations for electric vehicles Juice Technology AG has been honored with an award for particularly sustainable design by the European Center for Architecture, Art, Design and Urbanism and the Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design, for its JUICE CHARGER me.

The JUICE CHARGER me sets new standards in sustainable product design. This has now been confirmed by leading representatives of the design industry. The exterior of the wallbox is characterized by its simple square design. Whether mounted on a wall or on a plinth, the device looks equally unpretentious and elegant, whether in public or semi-private areas.

The housing combines a high-quality finish with high mechanical strength and light resistance, making the device suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Christoph Erni, CEO and founder of Juice Technology AG, emphasizes that charging technology design is much more than just appearance: “What is commonly associated with green design is resource-efficient design combined with the good recycling capacity of a product. However, sustainable design means also that the product should have all the functions that are useful and necessary – and not all the functions that are possible.A charging station must be easy and intuitive to use, so that people enjoy using it – time and time again.”

For Juice, however, sustainability also means the future viability of the hardware components thanks to the possibility of continuous software updates. Universal interfaces and standardized communication protocols for seamless connection to the back-end, local power management systems and high integration capabilities into larger networks are all essential.
As a recipient of this award, it is precisely this holistic approach that enables Juice to join the world’s leading manufacturers, design companies and leading FORTUNE 500 companies that are placing a new emphasis on sustainable design and the environment worldwide.

An award program for the green future

This year it has been 14 years since the Green GOOD DESIGN® award was presented. This specialized award has its origins in the GOOD DESIGN programme, launched in 1950 by the illustrious representatives of industrial design and architecture Eero Saarinen and Charles and Ray Eames, and is still considered the oldest and most important award program in the world.
The prize is awarded by an association of two institutions in Europe and America, the European Center for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies, and the Chicago Athenaeum, Museum for Architecture and Design.

GREEN GOOD DESIGN™ recognizes design innovations and breakthrough achievements that promote energy savings, recycling and greater sustainability in all sectors of industry. It aims to influence consumption habits and create a new form of design thinking that is also based on the ideal of reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

JUICE CHARGER me

The wallbox is fully pre-configured at the factory and immediately ready for use (plug and play). When connected to the charging socket, the charging station automatically recognizes any car that currently has the plug-and-charge standard according to ISO 15118 and starts charging immediately. An RFID reader is integrated for all vehicles that do not yet support ISO 15118. Local dynamic charge management in master-slave mode is built-in for up to 250 charging stations. A version with MID certified meter is available for use with charge/charge management.
