in operation for a few days, another excellent example of a charging station of the future or, in this specific case, of the present. It is located at a major German autobahn intersection, where autobahns 1 and 2 meet, north-south and east-west, at a place called Chamberer Kreuz.
The site, by the energy giant EnBWcomposed of a large shelter to protect 26 ultra-fast columnsalso equipped with toilets and seats inside.
There are 26 columns, which can load up to 52 electric cars, with parking spaces in front and behind. Once again we find the columns of the Italian manufacturer Alpitronics. This is precisely the model HYC300which can charge one car with up to 300 kW of power, or two for 150 kW each.
The shelter also entirely covered with photovoltaic panels, with a power of 120 kWp. On the occasion of the inauguration, the CEO of EnBW, Frank Mastiaux, also appealed to the new German government:
“The new federal government wants to make Germany a leading market for electromobility. For this to succeed, we need more “torque” to expand the charging infrastructure. In doing so, we can learn lessons from the energy turnaround: we need to avoid over-regulation, prioritize market-driven expansion, and implement planning, approvals, and financing procedures faster in the future. .“.
