CHAdeMO quick-chargers more than 70,000 EV today accounting for more 90% of the EV market

TOKYO, Japan 22, 2013) In just 12 months, the of globally installed Electric (EV) quick-chargers has doubled.

As the name implies, quick-chargers batteries in minutes rather hours, to build range of an EV and greatly enhance the practicality of transport.

Commenting on reaching the of more than 2,000 quick-chargers, Toshiyuki Shiga, of the CHAdeMO Association the driving behind the global spread of infrastructure ­- said: One year ago were around 1,000 in the world, but most of those in Japan.

Today, we have than 2,000 CHAdeMO in place in Europe and the US as well as There s even a CHAdeMO in oil-rich Abu Dhabi. And plans are in to more than double figure again, above by the end of 2013.

The CHAdeMO was founded in 2010 by a number of at the forefront of the electric vehicle keen to establish a standard for quick-charging networks.

The Association represents a cross-industry network from fields from electric and ICT manufacturers, utilities, local governments, and service operators. It now has more 430 member organisations across 26 with Association members in including PSA Peugeot Citroën, Schneider Electric, Siemens, ENEL and Endesa.

Indeed, is the only DC quick-charging system today to drivers of electric and the equipment is used by more 50 operators across Europe and the US.

there are more than CHAdeMO-compatible electric vehicles the world from 19 CHAdeMO-compatible including the Nissan LEAF, Partner Electric, Mitsubishi Citroën C-Zero, and Toyota EQ.

One of the significant CHAdeMO installations is the Coast Electric Highway, a (2,100kms) network running the West Coast of North linking British Columbia to California, which has already to 40 CHAdeMO quick-chargers installed 25 to 50 miles.

CHAdeMO quick-chargers can be found in 23 across Europe at strategic such as highway service linking major cities as as in shopping centre car parks allowing drivers to ‘refuel they shop.

Norway, much of the country s electrical is generated by renewable energy, has the EV. This, in turn, has led to a rapid in rapid charge installations. just one in 2011, today are more than 50 across the with more being every month.

Real-world from Japan shows how a of rapid chargers changes how a EV is used. When there just two CHAdeMO quick-chargers in on the 218 miles (350kms) highway Tokyo and Nagoya to the west, 19 per cent of EV drivers made the

But once the number of quick-chargers had to six, all placed at strategic along the route, EV drivers had the of knowing that they never far from a quick-charge. As a the figure using the highway to 46 per cent.

A CHAdeMO quick-charger 50 kW of high voltage direct (DC) via a special safety connector with specification can go up to 100kW. By delivering the DC charge to the car s power source, the CHAdeMO can replenish a battery to around 80 per of its capacity in as little as 15-30

Since its introduction in 2009, the of a CHAdeMO quick-charger has been by more than half to while its physical dimensions also been cut by half.

The quick-charger is expected to be included in the Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in the second half of 2013 and the will be expanded to allow for party certification to increase the of CHAdeMO quick-chargers.

It will be needed as global EV are expected to grow significantly in Nissan will be building in the UK and US and PSA Peugeot Citroën is to start EV in Spain, factors certain to in increased demand for a rapid of quick-charging networks.

There is no that our progress to date and the growth of our quick-charging installations how we are supporting current and future The CHAdeMO Association will to improve the specifications and meet the of consumers in order to accelerate the of e-mobility globally, said Mr

The name CHAdeMO is an abbreviation of the ‘CHArge de Move or ‘charge for It is also a word play on a phrase, which translates as about some tea? a to the short time it takes to an EV battery.

A CHAdeMO quick-charger needs 15 minutes to boost a partially battery to 80 per cent capacity and approximately 30 minutes if the battery has or no charge left.
