CharIN officially launches Megawatt Charging System for commercial EVs

Four years ago, the Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN), a global consortium with 280 members, including vehicle OEMs and EVSE manufacturers, established the Task Force for Heavy Duty Charging for Commercial Vehicles to develop a new standard for charging commercial EVs. Now CharIN has officially introduced the Megawatt Charging System (MCS), and demonstrated it using an… Read more »

NREL researchers, industry partners test Megawatt Charging System with up to 3.75 MW of power

Medium- and heavy-duty trucks, to say nothing of aviation and shipping, will require much more powerful charging facilities than those that now serve passenger cars. To get these heavy vehicles charged up in 15 to 20 minutes will require power levels of a megawatt or more, and transferring this much energy requires unique design in… Read more »

Task force to develop Megawatt Charging System for heavy-duty EVs

In September, an international task force including representatives of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN) hosted a meeting of “leading OEMs, utilities, equipment manufacturers and suppliers” to test prototypes for a new charging system for heavy-duty vehicles: the Megawatt Charging System (MCS). The task force says the test, which… Read more »

WattEV aims to operate 12,000 electric Trucks-as-a-Service and a charging network to support them by 2030

Electrifying commercial vehicles is a critical part of reducing emissions, so it’s frustrating that the pace of fleet electrification has been so slow. Viable commercial EVs have been around for years, but fleet operators insisted on conducting years-long pilots to prove their reliability. Now that phase is over, and companies are starting to place substantial… Read more »

New solar project will power 100% of Electrify America’s charging network—and then some

Electrify America has entered into a 15-year virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with Terra-Gen, a provider of utility-scale renewable energy projects, to build a solar photovoltaic generation project in San Bernardino County, California. The new installation, dubbed Electrify America Solar Glow, is targeted to be operational by mid-2023, and is expected to generate 75 MW… Read more »

Testing conformance and interoperability of EVs and charging infrastructure

EV and EVSE manufacturers and providers are striving to reach that magical tipping point where range, charging time, availability, safety, and price come together to help EVs become the consumer’s preferred choice versus conventional gasoline cars. However, any single design fault in this complex ecosystem will cost money and delays, and no one wants to… Read more »

Electrify America uses Tesla Powerpacks to provide 30 MW of energy storage at 140 fast charging stations

Electrify America has installed on-site, behind-the-meter battery energy storage systems at over 140 DC fast charging stations around the country, representing a total energy storage capacity of more than 30 megawatts. Electrek reports that these storage systems are Tesla Powerpacks. In 2019, the two companies announced a deal to deploy Powerpacks at over 100 EA… Read more »

ABB to provide charging infrastructure for Lilium’s electric regional air network

ABB E-mobility will provide the charging infrastructure for electric aircraft manufacturer Lilium‘s regional air network, which is scheduled for commercial launch in 2024. Lilium has announced planned launch networks in Florida, Germany and Brazil. As part of the agreement, ABB will develop, test and supply charging equipment based on standards being developed by CharIN’s Megawatt… Read more »

TeraWatt Infrastructure aims to address the massive energy capacity needs of EV fleet charging depots

As more fleets of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles go electric, there’s a growing awareness that building the necessary charging infrastructure will be a complex proposition, requiring specialized expertise and considerable capital. Fleet vehicle depots will need to incorporate not only charging stations, but energy management systems, and possibly energy storage and on-site generation. These sites… Read more »
