EIGHT and its partners activate fast-charging station at BMW WELT

On July 4th ABB, the BMW Group, Deutsche Bahn, EIGHT, RWE, the University of Bamberg, the German Armed Forces University of Munich and Dresden Technical University have activated the new DC-fast-charging station at BMW Welt In the context of a research project which is part of the showcase region Bavaria-Saxony “ELEKTROMOBILITÄT VERBINDET” initiative.

The DC-fast-charging station from ABB is based on the new IEC Standard 61851-23 / Combined Charging System (CCS) and can charge a pilot production version of the BMW i3 with almost empty batteries up to 80% within less than 30 minutes- which extends its range by 130 km. in the course of the project RWE Effizienz will erect a second CCS-fast-charging station at BMW Welt and will connect this technology to the IT-system.

At the same time EIGHT has presented its latest development: Point.One S. The new solar charging station was especially designed to charge one electric car. The demonstrator of Point.One S will be slightly modified by the end of this year and contain solar panels and a highly intelligent user interface. Currently EIGHT and the University  for Design of Schwaebisch Gmuend are working together on a new concept which makes it very easy and convenient to use the solar charging station.
