- The new charging platform will hit the market in the second quarter of 2021 and will be available worldwide
- Tritium’s platform will also enable customers to add battery storage to charging stations
As per a report by Reuters, electric vehicle charging station maker Tritium said that it is launching a new “scalable” platform so its customers can expand stations to charge more cars at once or change the speed at which they provide a charge. It added that the new charging platform will hit the market in the second quarter of 2021 and will be available worldwide.
It added that founder David Finn told Reuters in an interview that this will provide customers of Brisbane, Australia-based Tritium the flexibility to build a smaller charging station with the built-in capacity to add more charging points for EVs as sales and demand for charging infrastructure increase. Finn added that the company is very focused on providing customers the ability to scale out and do it in a cost-effective manner.
Draw power from the grid during off-peak hours
The report added that Tritium’s customers include Ionity – the EV charging joint venture of Volkswagen AG, BMW, Daimler AG , Ford Motor Co and Hyundai Motor Co, Nissan Motor Co Ltd, Honda Motor Co Ltd and Harley-Davidson Inc.
The report added that Tritium’s platform will also enable customers to add battery storage to charging stations. As the EV charging infrastructure develops, operators are expected to add battery storage. They can draw power from the grid during off-peak hours and use it to charge EVs during peak demand hours.
