You know the saying «If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” Well, in Stavanger, Norway they are truly pushing the limit of what we would expect from new technology. In September 2018, the city of Stavanger is starting an experiment where electric vehicles can be charged by connecting them to lampposts.

The people behind this project are excited to see whether this project, where people pay to charge using the public lampposts will succeed, or if people will prefer to continue to charge their vehicles at home. If this project fails, some politicians in Stavanger are worried about the future of the city after 2025. From 2025, Norwegian politician want all new cars to be electric vehicles.
