Norrkoping, Sweden – March 29, 2019
At the Hannover Messe 2019, 1-5 April, Chargestorm will preview its new DC charger. Aimed at urban environments, it offers a solution to the challenges of on-street EV (Electrical Vehicle) charging, where space and accessibility are a challenge. Created to blend into the urban landscape, the highly effective, rapid charger delivers a powerful of 50kW, providing up to 250km of range in one hour.
Designed to look like traditional street lighting, the charger has a folding arm that extends the CCS cable over pathways or cycleways, allowing pedestrians or cyclists to safely pass. Statistics and information about the current charging session are displayed on a screen integrated into the post. The charger is connected to the property’s electrical circuit and can also be fed from an energy storage system, powered by solar energy.
When the charging of the EV is complete, the arm is simply folded back towards the post, blending back into the urban landscape.
“We are really pleased to be showing this exciting new solution for the fast charging of electric vehicles in an urban environment. This product has been developed in direct response to the demand for a charging solution that addresses the challenges of accessibility and limited space for installation. The fact that this system can be powered by alternative energy sources and connected to smart energy solutions, makes it a great all-round solution to a real urban challenge.” said Jon Lind, CEO – CTEK Group
