EV Charging, The Next Generation (#Electrifying Webinar)
October 14th, 2017 by Zachary Shahan
Update: The webinar is now over and the Facebook video embedded above.
In this edition of our #Electrifying webinar series (which is free, as always), I’m talking with Peter Badik, co-founder and managing director of Central & Eastern European EV charging leader GreenWay.
GreenWay is also co-organizer of our upcoming “West Meets East: Charging Central & Eastern Europe’s Electromobility Revolution” conference in Warsaw, Poland. That is part of our Cleantech Revolution Tour conference series, but will also produce a white paper on EV charging guidelines created by a diverse working group of EV charging leaders that we’ve convened from across Europe.
In this webinar, we will chat about:
◊ Current status and evolution of EV superfast charging hardware.
◊ Automaker hints regarding cars that can use superfast charging.
◊ Challenges of installing/offering superfast charging.
◊ Expected future mix of different charging options/rates.
If you have other matters you’d like to see us discuss, chime in! Details are here:
◊ Registration link (free!)
◊ Date: October 14
◊ Time: 6:00pm CET
And you can also watch on our Facebook page.
A few more notes on GreenWay’s EV charging leadership: It initially built a fast charging network around Slovakia, and it’s now quickly building one around Poland — putting up a charging station “every other day,” Peter told me earlier this week.
As part of that network, 13 of the new stations will be “ultrafast” charging stations that have charging capacity up to 350 kW. Here are more specs on the split (across all 195 charging stations being built in Poland as well as the 53 in place already in Slovakia):
- 145 fast charging stations
- 70 AC “slow” charging stations
- 13 ultra-fast charging stations
For more details one what these different types of charging options are, see: Electric Car Charging 101 — Types of Charging, Charging Networks, Apps, & More!
If all of that wasn’t cool enough, I’m happy to note that Peter has been a CleanTechnica reader for years. And he’s just a cool dude.
