Leading battery buffered ultra-fast charging technology provider ADS-TEC Energy GmbH has entered into a purchase agreement with one of Europe’s largest energy suppliers to have ultra-fast charging systems from ADS-TEC Energy operating in Spain by the end of the year. This agreement is part of the Customer’s plan to deploy a comprehensive public charging network in the country. The first ChargeBox units are already delivered and will be installed on main motorways of Spain, and others will follow in the next few months. The ultra-fast charging stations will be open to the public and accessible around the clock.One of the greatest barriers to the scale up of EV charging is the permitting and long timelines to handle the increasing demands resulting from wide-spread rapid charging needs. ADS-TEC Energy’s technology platforms are extraordinary in their ability to provide ultra-fast charging capabilities on the existing infrastructure by using batteries as buffers between the grid and the vehicle. Specifically, ADS-TEC platforms charge slowly from the low voltage grid, and then deliver stored energy to electric vehicles at ultra-fast rates of up to 320 kilowatts.
