The current infrastructure for charging electric vehicles (EVs) is too sparse, especially for heavy EVs in need of speed charging. Polarium and AstaZero will use AstaZero’s test site to enable research, testing and development of solutions that can be scaled to accelerate the broader adoption of speed charging for EVs.
“Constantly striving to develop the proving ground for new purposes such as new charging solutions, respecting the environment and keeping a sustainable mindset characterizes all AstaZero’s work. Collaborating with Polarium enables us to go beyond vehicle testing also making it possible to test and develop new charging solutions. This is important not only to enable for higher speed charging, but also research and development of cost-effective grid solutions and energy supply solutions for sites such as harbors,” says Peter Janevik, CEO at AstaZero.
Energy storage solutions will play a key role in the development of EV charging infrastructure, while lowering electricity consumption and costs through energy optimization. In the long term, the use of energy storage will also enable EV charging infrastructure operators to aggregate capacities of distributed energy resources, including solar power, for power generation. This will allow them to help stabilize the grid and generate new revenue streams.
“AstaZero's unique test site is the leading test bed for the mobility systems of the future. Our collaboration is a fantastic opportunity to test new kinds of speed charging to meet demand and further accelerate the mainstream adoption of heavy electric vehicles. Our long-term goal is to develop flexible and scalable electric vehicle charging solutions that can help sustain the growth of electric vehicle adoption,” says Maha Bouzeid, Head of Business Development at Polarium.
Polarium and AstaZero expect to start testing on site during the first quarter of 2022.
