Nationwide Fast Charge network - upgrade of existing network to meet European standards
This pilot project will transform 40 of the 46 existing charging stations in Denmark into fast, multi-standard and interoperable facilities to meet the coming European standards and achieve compatibility with other EU countries.
As a pilot deployment, the project is expected to not only help develop the electric vehicle infrastructure in Denmark, but also for the rest of Europe and foster drivers’ acceptance of electric vehicles. Empirical evidence on technical challenges and how to roll out an efficient national network will be collected and reported to other Member States facing the same challenges.
Additionally, the project aims to contribute to several environmental benefits, such as reducing noise and local air pollution (especially in cities), cutting on CO2 emissions, and supporting the growth of a significant green tech industry in Europe.
State of progress on 31 December 2014:
Eleven (11) out of the 40 charging stations are already installed and operational. System modifications to the backend system were made; website and smartphone applications have been launched to ensure the multi charging sites are visible to users through the smartphone apps “CLEVER”. Also, the equipment and installation are already ordered for the remaining sites.
