They used the Turin tramway as an example, driven by a shared conviction: the future of electric vehicles charging lies in more synergy and cooperation between local stakeholders.
Following a research phase, the civil works to build this real-life demonstrator will begin in September.
It will encompass:
- ten 3.6 kW DC chargers
- one 150 kW charger.
For now, this is how the charging infrastructure looks like!
Connecting the charging station infrastructure with the tramway infrastructure comes with several benefits, including:
- A more efficient and cost-effective infrastructure thanks to the direct DC connection ;
- An increased stability for the tramway grid.
It is key to develop an efficient, open-access public-charging infrastructure and thereby support the boom of the electric vehicles market in the coming years.
