Iberdrola inaugurates the largestultra-fast charging mecca for electric vehicles in southern Europe
The installation, located in Elche (Alicante), has a nominal power of four megawatts and dishes of over to 400 kW, able of recharging auto batteries in lower than five twinkles • The company, in cooperation with Porsche, plans to boost electric mobility by setting up 35ultra-fast charging stations, which will enable Iberdrola to expand its charging network, the most important in Spain Iberdrola has inaugurated the largestultra-fast charging mecca for electric vehicles that presently exists in southern Europe. Located in a strategic position on theA-70 motorway, in the megacity of Elche, the installation consists of two charging stations- bone in each direction of the motorway-and will have a total nominal power of fourmegawatts.The structure, carried out in cooperation with Porsche, comprises a aggregate of four 400 kW dishes and 12 200 kW dishes, which can charge up to 16 vehicles contemporaneously and recharge an electric auto battery in lower than five twinkles. The donation form was attended by the Councillor for Territorial Policy, Public Works and Mobility, Arcadi España; the Mayor of Elche, Carlos González; the General Manager of Porsche Ibérica, Tomás Villén; and the Global Director of Smart Mobility at Iberdrola, Raquel Blanco, who explained how the installation works and presented Iberdrola’s electric vehicle charging network, the most important inSpain.According to Raquel Blanco,”Iberdrola is making a significant investment in this type of structure to give content for intercity peregrinations for electric vehicle druggies. These are innovative installations, suitable for any type of electric auto, which allow batteries to be charged in veritably short times and which, together with the network of charging points that the company has in operation in the rest of Spain, represent a definitive commitment to the decarbonisation of mobility in our country”. ULTRA-FAST RECHARGING STATIONS DEVELOPMENT PLANIberdrola, a world leader in renewable powers, has partnered with Porsche, a leader in technology and invention, to install a aggregate of 35ultra-fast charging stations in Spain with the most important dishes on the request. This collaboration also includes the installation of 15 innovative charging points at strategic bumps, with further than 300 kW of power per unit, associated with battery storehouse systems that increase the effectiveness of thefacilities.In addition to this alliance, the company continues with its electric mobility expansion plan, which will allow it to installultra-fast charging stations in strategic areas throughout the country in the coming times, as well as continuing with the deployment of lower power installations. Theseultra-fast charging capitals join Iberdrola’s network of charging structure, which formerly has further than public charging points in operationnationwide.Raquel Blanco stressed that these types of architectures”are settlers in our country and anticipate the future of electric vehicles. They’re committed to invention and the rearmost technology, withultra-fast charging dishes and veritably high power (400 kW) that make a unique charging experience possible due to their speed and simplicity”. It should be noted that druggies of these installations will recharge the battery of their electric buses with 100 green energy, from renewable generation sources with a guarantee of origin instrument (GdOs) and the charging points will be located on the Iberdrola Public Charging App. This is the only operation in Spain that includes vindicated information on all electric vehicle dishes, both those of Iberdrola and those of other drivers, from which you can geolocate the bowl, check its operation in real time and book and pay from your mobilephone.ELECTRIC MOBILITY AND GREEN RECOVERYThe electricity company is rolling out a sustainable mobility plan, with an investment of 150 million euros, with which it’ll consolidate the deployment of charging points for electric vehicles in the coming times. The action envisages the installation of around charging points, both in homes and businesses, as well as on civic roads, in metropolises and on the main motorways in the coming times. The commitment to the deployment of high- effectiveness stations will take the form ofultra-fast (over 350 kW),super-fast (over 150 kW) and fast (50 kW)stations.Iberdrola is apprehensive of the need to promote electromobility in Spain through coordinated and effective action with the main agents involved. In this regard, the company has formerly completed further than 50 structure deployment agreements with administrations, institutions, companies, service stations, dealers and electric vehiclemanufacturers.The company was the first Spanish company to subscribe up to The Climate Group’s EV100 action, with the end of accelerating the transition to electric vehicles, committing to exhilarate its entire line of vehicles and grease charging for staff in its businesses in Spain and the UK by 2030.
