In Italy there is a lack of fast charging points for electric cars. It's easy to hear this phrase, both from those who have never set foot on a battery-powered car, and from those who use it regularly every day.?
The situation today? changed a lot compared to 2018, the starting year of the #HDelettrico experiment. Do we know this and ? those who travel as much as Elena Airoldi , Junior Country Manager Italy for IONITY, know very well? Who travels around the Bel Paese with electric cars from some time.?
On the other hand, it could not have been otherwise seen the company he works for, and? clear that, only if you face the Italian roads every day with an electric (here on HDmotori we have often done it, towards Sicily or towards Munich), can you? to account for the improvement compared to the past and the critical issues? still present .
In two years many new stations have been born, yet not enough ,? an objective fact. For this, with Elena, I tried to understand what are future plans ? For what? was? the first very high-speed charging network? ( 350 kW ) to be born after Tesla's Superchargers, now in the experimental opening phase, but still reserved for the American electric ecosystem.
- GOAL: 7,000 CHARGING POINTS
- A SOLUTION FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE A BOX
- PLANS FOR ITALY?
PHASE 2: 1000 STATIONS FOR 7000 CHARGING POINTS
Subsequently and/or in parallel, depending on the case, will we proceed? with the increase in the number of stalls for each station or for the implementation of more? charging points in newly built stations. Affi ne? an example and allow? to recharge? 18? cars at the same time in an area in the immediate vicinity of the motorway exit and with a photovoltaic roof to provide shade and generate energy.?
AN ANSWER TO THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE THE BOX
If on the one hand we have an infrastructure plan that includes many openings? along the main arteries, those for motorway traffic, on the other < strong> IONITY confirms that fast charging should not be exclusive to travelers . The target ? in fact, to identify a series of tactical hubs at the service of cities , just to meet the needs of those who cannot? recharge in a private box or do not have a convenient column, be it public or in the workplace.?
The idea? to create an advanced service station, perhaps with related services, with a high flow of vehicles why? IONITY serves customers who, with technologies already? available today, will not spend more? 15/20 minutes to recharge. So, create a hub with different stalls for a quick change of the vehicles being recharged ?? the solution, according to the company, for medium and large cities? made of condominiums without parking and garage owned? .?
< p> The electric user? would charge at these EV service stations just like those who go to fill up weekly for daily city trips. If the autonomy of the car and the movements allow it,? Assuming 30 km a day are already there? today many electric that allow you to recharge only once a week in the urban scenario.?
It is clear that this type of charging stations will have to? necessarily count on a greater number of stalls , precisely to reduce waiting times to a minimum compared to the current structures with 4 points (expandable to 6) in which a wait is created in periods of greater congestion .?
FUTURE PLANS FOR ITALY
Have we already? saw that the goal? increase coverage across Europe: the areas on which you will work? in our country they are the Adriatic belt and central Italy around Rome . In addition to the installation of charging stations to “cover the holes” that are missing for those who want to tackle longer trips? long with an electric, Ionity will go? to gradually increase the stalls in the existing stations, passing from 4 to 6.?
This increase will be? pi? quick compared to the creation of new stations, for the reason that the bureaucratic and infrastructural part is not? still been speeded up as promised by the policy. Regardless of these issues, however, the IONITY plan envisages building the new stations with a minimum of 6 recharging points, up to a dozen or more. in virtuous cases such as that of Affi.?
