The pop-up mini solar car park and EV charging hub
Get EV ready
Net zero carbon emissions
Reduce electricity costs
3ti launch award winning, new product, Papilio3, a pop-up mini solar car park and electric vehicle charging hub, developed by 3ti, to boost the roll out of EV charging infrastructure and help to decarbonise the transport sector.
By combining local mains power with solar panels, a battery and EV charge points, businesses can rapidly deploy up to 12 charge points in one go, across workplace and destination car parks such as at the office, at retail outlets, travel hubs or leisure facilities.
Papilio3 allows EV drivers to “charge where they stop” rather than having to “stop to charge”.

There’s no denying a solar car park requires serious capital investment. We don’t think that should stop your organisation from benefiting from a solar carport.

Getting planning permission for many structures can be a hassle. Don’t worry, our team will help you with your planning application. Planners are more likely to approve a solar car park because of its many benefits to the local area; such as reduced light pollution, reduced carbon emissions, and influence on increasing EV adoption.

In most cases, a solar car park requires a long term commitment. If your organisation is serious about installing a solar car park, then you may wish to consider extending your lease. If this is not possible or your organisation needs change, then it may be possible to relocate your solar park to a new facility.
Schedule a call today and we’ll discuss how a solar car park can adapt to your organisation.
Getting landlords to make changes to a property can be difficult at times. Luckily for you, installing a solar carport is something most commercial landlords will be happy to consider. In the long term, a solar car park will enhance the value of the property and improve the chances of attracting new tenants. We’d be happy to discuss the benefits with your landlord. With our support, we may be able to convince your landlord to invest in your solar project too.

Papilio3 hosted by the University of Surrey at its Research Park
As a local business we are aware of the innovative work at the University of Surrey (US) and its operation of the Research Park – it is the perfect location to host Papilio3.
The world’s first pop-up mini solar car park and electric vehicle charging hub, deployable in only 24 hours, has been revealed at the Surrey Research Park, Guildford, home to over 200 innovative businesses, from newly formed start-ups to global corporates such as Airbus and BAE Systems.
