Unlocking net-zero EV charging, where grid availability constrains carbon reduction ambitions
It is not always possible to access or continually upgrade grid connections
On-site wind and solar requires space and long-term investment to be viable
power solutions are
either heavily polluting or uneconomical
The problem: power availability can be a barrier to the electrification of fleet vehicles for many businesses.
The Flameless Ceramic Turbine for EV charging
IPG’s turbine is a cleaner, cheaper, grid-independent power solution for Ultra-Rapid, Rapid, Fast and Slow EV charging. Up to eight 100kW turbines fit in a 20ft shipping container, forming a deployable power solution that can be scaled to match demand for both public and fleet EV charging infrastructure.
Each unit can be turned on or off to match demand, without impacting system efficiencies, or redeployed in other locations to respond to variations in predicted demand.
The power solution can also be optimised to provide power to the site facilities, be that a motorway service station or delivery depot, when not in use for charging.
Benefits in EV charging
Cleaner: Pollutant-free power from hydrogen and biofuels
Flameless combustion eliminates harmful pollutants from any renewable fuel, delivering a EV charging power solution as clean-and-green as hydrogen fuel cells and battery storage.
Cheaper: Low-cost power solution that will end reliance on diesel
High efficiencies and low-cost design principles deliver a levelised cost of energy cheaper than a hydrogen fuel cell and comparable to a diesel genset.
Futureproof: Modular and scalable to growing net-zero ambitions
100kW modules can be scaled to demand, whilst maintaining emissions and cost benefits. One 20ft shipping container can charge 35 vans overnight, or power Ultra-Rapid charging for 8 cars at one time.
"Grid access and capacity issues, as well as the infeasibility of on-site solar and wind, is a barrier for EV charging in many locations.
Highways England is funding this project to assess how IPG's turbine technology could present a solution for delivering power at a competitive cost while improving air quality, that would alleviate grid stress in high-use areas, as well as enabling remote locations to facilitate EV charging.”
