EVolving Energy: Gilbarco e-Mobilty Expert Takes on EV Charging Hot Topics :
Where is The Industry Going?
What about the challenge of overcoming home charging? It’s a valid concern when 80% of EV drivers have home chargers, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. “I personally don’t think it will stay that high,” Brian predicts. “When people start analyzing the charging experience, one word that’s top of mind for everyone is ‘convenience.’” As Brian explains, Gilbarco’s years of research shows that people overwhelmingly want the charging experience to mirror the mechanics of the traditional fueling experience.
While home charging is the norm, it isn’t an option for many urban dwellings like apartment buildings with no access to parking. When people consider the logistics and cost of installing a home charger themselves, a trip to the local convenience store sounds a lot more, well – convenient.“If you look at a company like Gilbarco, you’re asking, ‘why did we get into e-Mobility,’ and it’s because we know the C-store space,” Brian says. “It’s more than offering a charger by itself in some ugly corner. We want to bring it in to the full fueling environment. Give consumers the same experience they have today.”
EV Options for All
As we broaden the scope of our e-Mobility platform, Brian and his team are offering businesses and fleets more and more options to find the right fit. “Not only do we serve convenience stores, we also serve fleets. Each market has slightly different needs to be met and different use cases that have to be solved for, and the addition of an L2 charger to our platform really, really enables us to go a little bit broader than we did before.” One of the inevitable decision points of a site operator will be network chargers or standalone models. “If you’re a retailer who, for whatever reason, be it economic or operational, wants to work with an operator network, that’s something we can support. But we also support independent operation and that’s where I see a really great future opportunity.” Each model comes with trade-offs which we explain in a previous blog.
Thanks again to John Eichberger and the Fuels Institute for having us on Carpool Chats.
The current Request for Proposals (RFP) targets ZEV infrastructure projects in public places (including service stations), on-street, multi-unit residential buildings, workplaces and light-duty vehicle fleets.
Level 3 DC Fast Chargers bypass slower on-board chargers providing DC power directly to the battery, greatly increasing the charging speed. DC fast charging is essential for high mileage/long distance driving and fleets. The quick turnaround enables drivers to recharge quickly versus many hours from an AC Level 2 charger.
The Boost Charger is an ultrafast and flexible DC fast charger for electric vehicles (EVs). The battery-integrated design enables Boost Charger to easily connect to existing electrical infrastructure without costly construction and complex permitting. Boost Charger has a 160 kWh battery capacity up to with 200 kW output and only 27 kW or less input, making it ready for all EVs including light to heavy duty models.
