CLEVER to add 100 ABB fast charging stations in Denmark and neighboring countries
11 December 2014
Danish electric mobility operator CLEVER will expand its charging network in Denmark and neighboring countries with 100 ABB multi-standard Terra 53 DC fast charging stations. The chargers will be installed in Denmark and in neighboring countries through partners, including a first collaboration with Öresundskraft in Sweden.
The network will continue expanding into other countries with support of the European TEN-T funding program, an EU transportation infrastructure policy implemented in January 2014 to ensure reliable, sustainable passenger and freight transportation within the EU member states.
The expansion of CLEVER’s network follows its 2012 ABB collaboration to roll out a country-wide network of fast chargers in Denmark. In 2013, CLEVER added an additional 50 ABB DC fast chargers, bringing its total network to 100 locations, including both AC and DC chargers that support all modern electric vehicles (EV) on the Danish market.
Over the last year ABB and CLEVER worked closely together to create an optimal fast charging experience in Denmark with convenient payment systems and the highest uptime and reliability in the industry. ABB’s Terra 53 offers connectivity that allows the charging stations to be remotely monitored; an ABB Charger Care service program then provides rapid response to any service or maintenance needs.
ABB’s connected platform provides a reliable back-bone for CLEVER’s payment solutions and administrative systems, and allows the charging stations to seamlessly connect to smart electricity distribution systems or grids.
With Denmark (the land of windmills) producing renewable electricity at times exceeding national demand,Infrastructure incorporated tidal and surge barrier turbines being planned is an example to the rest of us esp the doubters that fossil fuels are dead. (they just won't lie down)
With comercially available solar cells adapted to verified 40% sunlight conversion via a 4 layer and mirror technique (no smoke)
It is no longer a valid argument to suggest that we will not be able to meet the needs of modern society.
Just as it no longer acceptable or true to say that current fossil - or nuclear - can provide for the needs of 21st century life (as we know it).
There is a great future to be lived if we take the challenge.
The old saying would be "hold the nettle with an iron hand to feel no pain.
Referring to the way psychological resolve and attitude can suppress normal immunological response (pain)
There are as many who stand to lose as there are winners in the coming economy. The winners are often early adopters the losers will be the vested interests, the (typically) over sized inertially constrained over capitalised comercial interests.
The rest of us will be enabled by easier access to cheapest power.
In the final analysis we will all be winners if we can stop turning our planet into a wasteland.
