Nidec Industrial Solutions presents Ultra Fast Charger for EVs; up to 320 kW, with 50 kW from grid

Nidec Industrial Solutions has introduced the Ultra Fast Charger (UFC), an advanced EV charging system. The Ultra Fast Charger incorporates 160 kWh of installed batteries with advanced power controls. It is the prototype of a new generation of ultra fast chargers which can be connected to LV or MV grids and which, against an energy requirement of only 50 kW, can supply 320 kW of power to a vehicle, thereby multiplying the power delivered by 6 compared to that drawn from the grid.

With this innovative system, the batteries of new-generation cars can be rapidly recharged to 80% of their capacity in less than 15 minutes, guaranteeing the vehicles up to 500 km (311 miles) of travel. It also allows the recharging of 2 vehicles in parallel or 3 in series, and has an efficiency of 95%.

Nidec Industrial Solutions’s recharging systems are designed to be supplied both from the electricity grid and from renewable sources, such as solar energy, and can be bi-directional: they can be used not only for recharging electric vehicles, but Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G).

Nidec Industrial Solutions is developing an entire portfolio of products to meet the needs of all market players, divided in three different formats: in addition to the ultra fast chargers, it also offers LV Charging Stations with centralized batteries, with which 12 vehicles can be charged to 80% of their capacity in an hour, and MV Charging Stations, possibly without batteries, which can be used to deliver greater power and recharge numerous cars (more than 12 vehicles in an hour) at the same time, such as a fleet of corporate cars, or trade vehicles in a logistics enterprise.

Good, but a bit "battery intensive".
I wonder can you plug banks of PV into them for extra greenery.

This could become an interesting solution while making better/more use of clean energy from REs and charging EVs faster?
