Driving the fast charging of electric vehicles
Measures to encourage the uptake of electric vehicles (EV) include fast charging infrastructure. While the EU is on the path towards a decarbonised transport system, there is a long road ahead before fast and widespread charging becomes readily available. The EU-funded HEROES project will develop a disruptive hybrid high power/high energy stationary storage system for fast charging of EVs (15-20 minutes) to be used in medium-size charging stations connected to the low voltage grid. It will combine Li-ion capacitor (LiC), which has high power and high energy densities, with Li-ion batteries to store high amounts of energy and serve as back-up when the charging demands of EVs surpasses the LiC and grid connection capacity.
