"Gas" Up at This Solar Kiosk

Bozen, Denmark's E-Move Charging Station is the work of that country's entrepreneur, Valentin Runggaldier, and — while those renders make it look like a flight of fancy — it's actually real and going through a test.

The idea is to provide a place for electric vehicles to charge up (in this case, eight of them), giving commuters another option than the outlet at home. It also benefits from the fact that it wouldn't require a lot of infrastructure to be installed, as a city-wide smart grid would.

No word on how much longer it takes to charge a vehicle up at an E-Move power station, but Mr. Runggaldier would like to sell his concept to governments if the tests prove promising. Check out more in Dvice's gallery.
