How batteries at several charging locations could charge every electric vehicle quicker. Normally, there is not enough power in places to allow everyone to charge fast, but however, ADS-TEC thinks that the buffering of batteries can fix the problem.
How Batteries at Several Charging Locations Could Charge Every Electric Vehicle Quicker
Infrastructures put in place for charging may be more consequential in regards to the adoption of EVs than innovation in cars. Setting more places up to charge faster can play a very important role in the experience of the driver and also the perception of electric vehicles.
However, creating a large network of more fast charging isn’t a wasted effort as haters of electric vehicles always like to point out. This is a big project in regards to construction almost in the region of the interstate highway system that may go over the available power in many areas and locations no matter the amount of cable you run or even the charges that you may connect to it.
What ADS-TEC Has To Say about the Matter
John Tuccillo who is the head of global corporate and government affairs for ADS-TEC energy said ‘the question is not really about utility infrastructure. The question is really about the available power’ that can be delivered all through these lines and also the substations.
If it is not enough to support desired numbers of fast-charge connections, gas stations, malls, and other partners will be stuck in trying to match their slower level 2 charging tech with an increase in consumer expectations of a fast visit in picking up food, a Slurpee or just a curbside online order. Putting hopes on drivers to stay longer on their errands than necessary in trying to accommodate slower charging times is a losing bet and shouldn’t be even considered.
ADS-TEC Aims to Set up Grid Power at Various Charging Locations
ADS-TEC is putting forward a type of technology that is called battery buffering. The company says the technology can step up grid power at various charge locations making use of special batteries that are installed in the charging equipment that you connect to your car.
This touted technology can fast-charge a car making use of a grid power that otherwise would have only supported slower level 2 charging which of course does not cause unnecessary fire unless it is installed in their homes which is a totally different scenario that does not apply to batter buffering.
