Volvo and Polestar plug into infrastructure incentives

The easily-transportable hub can be installed and adapted quickly to suit individual locations, and also helps Audi demonstrate its green credentials. The hub is made up of flexible container cubes which house charging pillars as well as used lithium-ion batteries for energy storage (2.45Mwh). Because of this, the 300kW charging stations only need a standard 400V high-voltage hook-up. Photovoltaic modules on the roof also provide additional green energy. ′The charging hub embodies our aspiration for the electric era and highlights Audi’s commitment to ″Vorsprung durch Technik.″ A flexible high-performing HPC charging park like this does not require much from the local electricity grid and uses a sustainable battery concept. Our customers benefit in numerous ways: from the ability to make exclusive reservations, a lounge area and short waiting times thanks to high-performance charging. This is consistent with the premium concept,’ said Oliver Hoffmann, member of the board for technical development of Audi.
Quick charging: Audi is working on a concept for the Audi charging hub – a pilot project aimed at providing high-power charging stations and making more charging infrastructure available. >> https://t.co/u4vvrq4F75#Audi #Charging #eMobility #Sustainability #PilotProject pic.twitter.com/VaPQGLOYGu″” Audi (@AudiOfficial) May 21, 2021
