Québec charging community The Electrical Circuit has launched a heavy- and medium-duty car charging pilot challenge. Because the variety of electrical vehicles on the roads is anticipated to extend considerably over the subsequent few years, the challenge goals to realize a greater understanding of heavy-vehicle charging patterns to be able to develop infrastructure that meets the wants of the market.
The pilot contains the set up of devoted stations for heavy autos, designed with components akin to turning radius and trailer size in thoughts.
The primary charging station to be included within the pilot challenge is positioned on Rue Cunard within the city of Laval. It’s designed to be handy for truck charging—heavy autos with trailers can park on both aspect of the 2 charging stations on website. The 2 stations have a mixed energy capability of as much as 350 kW, and have each SAE Combo and CHAdeMO connectors. Different stations will likely be added by 2024.
“Though mild autos have been the preliminary focus of transportation electrification, many different forms of electrical autos will likely be on our roads within the subsequent few years,” stated France Lampron, Director of Improvement of Vitality and Mobility Gives at utility Hydro-Québec. “In terms of charging, we intend to be prepared to present the market the momentum it wants.”
