In recent years, the world has witnessed an explosion in EV sales. However, market actors such as car manufacturers, road infrastructure authorities and fleet owners still face numerous obstacles that prevent further transition towards fully electric transport. Most of these obstacles arise from the lack of sufficient charging infrastructure.
But there are other innovative solutions being developed by several start-ups, which could help. L-Charge, for example, has developed a charging station that’s off the grid entirely and can charge 100 km (roughly 60 miles) in just 5-10 minutes
INNIO signed a contract with L-Charge to deliver a Jenbacher J312 gas engine for an off-grid charging station
In order to foster the common goal of sustainable mobility, INNIO Jenbacher cooperates with L-Charge and supplies a Jenbacher J312 gas engine (600 kW). This engine will be the core of the solution L-Charge Stationary – a stationary mini-power station for fast charging of EV
INNIO Jenbacher has reached an agreement with the manufacturer of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, the young company L-Charge. As part of the agreement, L-Charge acquires a Jenbacher J312 gas engine (600 kW), which will be the core of the solution L-Charge Stationary - a stationary mini-power station for fast charging of EV.
Gastech, the world’s foremost exhibition and conference, begins tomorrow at the Dubai World Trade Centre. L-Charge, manufacturer of innovative charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, has announced that it will debut its cutting-edge technologies at Gastech, highlighting how its unique charging solutions, including the stationary and mobile charging stations operated by hydrogen or gas-fueled electrical generator, offer companies from key sectors, mainly the gas and energy, unique advantages such as environmentally- friendly, more reliable and cost-effective and easy to set up chargers, with the ability to add 100 kilometres for electric vehicle (EV) within 2-7 minute charging.
With the company still in the early stages, L-Charge is set to pioneer its first mobile charging point that will soon be roaming the streets of Moscow. This shows how fast the EV charging industry is evolving, given that some peer service providers have also jumped into the off-grid charging bandwagon.
As for its mobile charging point, L-Charge introduces a movable charging minivan that can patrol specific zones to recharge EVs on request. This moving charging point leverages Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) or a combination of LNG and Hydrogen (H2) to create carbon-efficient energy, ultimately powering EV vehicles. Notably, LNG emits 45% less carbon than coal and 30% less than oil.
The transport sector is gradually evolving into an electrified ecosystem as the world embraces carbon-efficient solutions. This industry has been a significant player in accelerating sustainable energy use following the debut of electric vehicles (EVs), which are now being produced in mass by companies such as Tesla.
