Fast EV charging
The road to best-in-class efficiency
As e-mobility increasingly becomes part of daily life, there is a growing need for more efficient charging solutions. Fast EV charging stations equipped with powerful DC EV chargers are today’s answer. DC EV chargers are an attractive choice because they allow much faster charging than standard AC EV ones, which many EV owners have at home. Today, a DC charger with 150kW can put a 200km charge on an EV in around just 15 minutes. As fast charging and battery technologies continue to evolve and improve in the near future, experts anticipate the charging time will drop even further.
