CHAdeMO 3.0 supports charging with “over 500 kW”
The CHAdeMO Association has presented the new CHAdeMO 3.0 protocol, which was jointly developed with the China Electricity Council (CEC). According to the organisation, the charging standard will enable DC charging with a capacity of “over 500 kW”.
Japan and China team up for high power chargers
China and Japan have announced plans to cooperate on developing a new charging standard for ultra-fast vehicle chargers with more than 500 kW. A statement of intent will be signed by the CHAdeMO association and the China Electricity Council (CEC) in August.
CHAdeMO 2.0 allows for charging up to 400 kW
The CHAdeMO Association has released the announced protocol version CHAdeMO 2.0 for their members. The system allows for charging capacities up to 400 kW, and allows for charging up to 1,000 volts with liquid-cooled cables without changing plugs or via current collectors.
CHAdeMO working on 400 kW charging
Asia’s charging standard CHAdeMO is working to up its game as the next protocol is to enable high power charging at 400 kW. For now, the latest protocol 1.2 enables 200 kW but it looks as if they are ready to go head to head with CCS.
Video Interview: Tomoko Blech, CHAdeMO Association.
– Exclusive –
Tomoko Blech, European Representative of the CHAdeMO Association, is confident that the DC standard from Japan will continue to spread across Europe and even remain an important player in Germany, which is generally rooting for its own CCS standard instead. Instead of wanting to replacing one with the other, Blech told elective.com in this exclusive interview at the Hanover Trade Fair that she believes in multi-standard chargers and also that AC chargers will start playing an ever important role. Watch the whole interview to find out why.
