The COBE project for the ultra-fast charging station is based on a sustainable rethinking of the conventional charging station. The charging station should not only minimise charging time, but also create a significant break for the driver and passenger. The charging station comes in the form of a series of structural "trees", with "foliage” that filter light and shade. The modular approach means that the project is scalable and that a "tree" can be easily multiplied to become a "forest" depending on the capacity required.
