The Berlin-based company Ubitricity was awarded the win for the Local Climate Action Tech Competition in New York. Now the administration behind mayor Bill de Blasio is checking potential cooperations with the company in all five boroughs.

Ubitricity is mostly known for their development of a mobile electricity counter, which would allow for a simple upgrade of existing street lights to additionally function as vehicle chargers. In June a test installation was set up in New York. Now the talk is about a potentially multi-year pilot-project in all five of New York’s boroughs.

The Local Climate Action Tech Competition was first announced in 2017, after which the Berliners managed to prevail against 30 other competitors. The contest was started in cooperation between the New Yorker Chief Technology Office, the NYC Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, NYC’s Department of Citywide Administrative Services, and NYC’s Department of Transportation. “Ubitricity’s innovative solution could be instrumental in helping the City’s achieve its climate action goal while simplifying the needs of electric vehicle users and future adopters,” said Jeremy Goldberg, a representative from the Mayor’s Office.
