Blink Charging brings its EQ 200 to the UK and Ireland
According to Blink Charging, the EQ 200 was developed to “enable the switch from static EV charging to more dynamic and sustainable energy management as grid technology develops.” The Level 2 charger supports 2G and 4G, Bluetooth and can connect to the internet via WiFi or ethernet, allowing it “to interact with a full range of load-balancing and intelligent energy management systems.”
The company emphasises that the EQ 200 was specifically designed for the European market and offers up to 22kW of charging power output. It is also available as a single-phase variant with 7.4kW.
Alex Calnan, Managing Director of Blink Charging UK, explains: “The launch of our grid-ready EQ 200 charger into the UK and Irish markets is an important moment for EV charging. Facilities including car parks, depots and offices now have the option of an advanced solution capable of interacting with smart energy systems.”
“Electric vehicle sales outpaced expectations in the UK last year, accounting for nearly 17% of new registrations,” says Miko de Haan, President of Blink Charging Europe. “This continued acceleration of EV adoption demands a sophisticated EV charging infrastructure, and we hope to play our part in growing a network of future-capable chargers that supports EV ambitions.”
