1.2.1 Fast Charging and Future Charging

Course subject(s) Module 1. EV Charging Infrastructure

A Nissan Leaf fast charges at 50kW which translates to 250 kilometers range per hour charging and Teslas already charge at 500 kilometers per hour! Imagine, as chargers get faster, what used to take half an hour will now be just over three minutes! In the second lecture of the module, Auke Hoekstra will address the topic of fast charging and future modes of charging.

Learning goals:

      • What is the state of today’s fast charging?
      • What are the steps needed in offering interoperability in charging?
      • What is the future of electric trucks and buses?
      • What are the possible future modes of charging?
