Chakratec, the pioneer in Energy Storage solutions based on a kinetic battery device won the eMove360o Award 2017 for Electric Mobility & Autonomous Driving 2017, Energy Storage category, held at the eMove360° Europe 2017 international trade fair for Mobility in Munich last week.
“It is a great honor for us to win this award amongst the big players. It indicates the industry believes in our technology” said Nir Zohar, co-founder and VP Business Development and Sales of Chakratec. “The recognition is a major validation of our concept and technology which will be rolled out in 2018 in 3 projects with European utilities for assisting fast EV charging.”
Electrical vehicles are moving more center stage. As part of this penetration, networks of Ultra-Fast DC EV Charging stations are being set up. These charging stations need to provide a lot of power to charge the EV in a short time. During charging the facility’s electrical infrastructure experiences a high current surge and an electrical demand spike which create a grid stability challenge. To stabilize the grid, storage is added to the charging stations.
Chakratec manufactures a patented Kinetic Energy Storage System that matches the needs of Fast EV Charging Stations (EVCS) to enable charging everywhere and to provide high quality and reliable service.
