Siemens introduces High Power EV Charger, reducing charging times significantly to just 16 minutes

The organization closely examined Munich, Germany, and its V2G (vehicle-to-grid) power potential in 2030.

Siemens, Europe’s largest industrial manufacturing company, offers consulting services, training programs, and fully integrated hardware and software solutions for EV charging businesses. While Siemens has its own proprietary CSMS platform, its hardware supports OCPP for full operability with white-label solutions.

  • Battery-operated electric vehicles are poised to serve as crucial storage solutions and power providers for upcoming power grids.
  • The organization closely examined Munich, Germany, and its V2G (vehicle-to-grid) power potential in 2030.
  • Establishing a nationwide eMobility infrastructure involves collaborating with competent partners as equals.
  • They envision electromobility holistically and devise solutions that extend beyond individual electric vehicle transportation.
  • Their dynamic charging infrastructure merges the efficiency of electrified railways with the adaptability of trucks to create an innovative freight traffic solution that is efficient, cost-effective, and eco-friendly.
  • Despite ambitious plans to transition goods transport to electrified railways, road freight is projected to grow in absolute terms and remain the primary source of CO2 emissions from freight.
  • Trucks are essential for delivering goods and services we rely on daily, but transportation accounts for 24% of global CO2 emissions, with road freight playing a significant role.
  • As Germany aims to reduce emissions by 65% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality in Europe by 2045, it is crucial to explore strategies that will substantially lower emissions in the transportation sector.

Siemens Mobility designs and manufactures a range of EV charging stations suitable for various applications, including public charging, workplace charging, and residential charging. These stations come in different configurations, such as AC chargers for slower charging and DC fast chargers for rapid charging. They are designed to be user-friendly, reliable, and interoperable with different types of electric vehicles.

  • The “smopi” charging park by smopi® – Multi Chargepoint Solution GmbH showcases an efficient and future-ready charging infrastructure for e-mobility in various locations.
  • The intelligent charging system can charge up to 10 vehicles simultaneously, providing load, charging, and energy management capabilities.

Smopi® has opened a public charging park with ten AC charging points near their headquarters in Bretzfeld, Baden-Wuerttemberg on the A6 motorway. The park is open to the public, making electromobility accessible to all. Smopi’s unique system can supply and monitor up to 10 charging points from a single central panel, optimizing charging speed and energy usage for efficient charging of up to 10 vehicles simultaneously.

The A6 motorway near Heilbronn in Germany is already witnessing the commencement of the future of AC charging for electric vehicles. The innovative “smopi” charging system, developed by smopi® – Multi Chargepoint Solution GmbH, introduces a centralized charging cabinet solution that replaces the need for multiple distributed individual systems. This groundbreaking technology sets the stage for an intelligent and streamlined charging infrastructure, ensuring efficient and future-proof e-mobility in various locations such as parking garages, hotels, and company and fleet parking lots.

Siemens Mobility offers smart charging solutions that leverage digital technologies to optimize the charging process. These systems may include features such as remote monitoring and management, load management to prevent grid overloads, billing and payment integration, and connectivity with renewable energy sources.

  • Charging scenarios include parking garages, municipal or supermarket parking areas, larger employee parking areas, gas stations, company fleet charging, e-bus depots, logistics depot parking, and more.
  • Programmable controllers have open interfaces that comply with international standards.
  • The solution is highly flexible, customizable, and requires minimal space for AC sockets (DC plugs have certain limitations).
  • AC charging is done according to IEC 61851-1 Mode 3, allowing for charging of any Type 1 or Type 2 compatible vehicle up to 3 phases and 11/22 kW (max. 43 kW).
  • The central control panel can be up to 30 m away from the AC charging points.
  • DC charging is done according to IEC 61851-1 Mode 4/ DIN SPEC 70121, allowing for charging of any CCS2, CHAdeMO, or Tesla SuC (via CCS adapter) compatible vehicle with up to 800 V for cars and more for buses and trucks (depending on converter performance).
  • The central control panel can be up to 10 m away from the DC charging plugs.
  • Fail-safe functionality can be included for safe switching of high power.
  • Optional load management allows for intelligent power allocation across charging vehicles using SIMATIC Energy Suite.
  • There is a built-in RFID connection for driver identification.
