CHAdeMO High Power Charging and Interoperability Test successful

22.06.2018

CHAdeMO Association and EVTEC are pleased to announce that the first European interoperability and high power charging test was successfully conducted in Kriens-Obernau, Switzerland from June 19th to June 21st , 2018.

From Tuesday until Thursday EVTEC’s espresso&charge multi-outlet high-power charging system and products from four further EVSE manufacturers were tested with high-power charging CHAdeMO vehicles, including a demonstration vehicle from Nissan which has been specially prepared for the event.

All EVSE and EV manufacturers tested successfully over the course of two days, where the espresso&charge reached a charging power of more than 100kW with one of the test vehicles. This simply shows the quality of new CHAdeMO protocol v1.2 and v2.0 for high power charge and the interoperability including backward compatibility which contributes to EV users and EV society immediately effective and in the future. For the final conference on Thursday over 70 guests visited to gather information about current developments and deployment of the CHAdeMO and to witness the previous day’s results in live demonstrations during the afternoon.

But charging at maximum power wasn’t the only aspect worth mentioning. EVTEC’s innovative coffee&charge bi-directional chargers supplied power from the bi-directional Nissan and Mitsubishi demo vehicles, to assure a seamlessly smooth operation.

CHAdeMO Association and EVTEC would like to thank all co-exhibitors, participants and visitors from over 14 countries, who found their way to central Switzerland.

"The potential for private users of the greenfuel concept is demonstrated at a residential home of pioneer users  Equipped with a photovoltaic power supply and a Mercedes-Benz Home storage solution the house enjoys already a certain level of energetic autarcy. At times where the stored energy turns out to be insufficient,  the fuel-cell-car steps in. By utilizing a EVTEC bidirectional charger and the KIWIGRID intelligent energy management system, this car is not limited any longer to be charged with the locally produced solar power from the house only, it is even more capable to produce energy in its fuel-cell in order to recharge the batterystorage of the house the other way around. The car turns into a sustainable micro power plant for home users."
