ChargeLounge: fast charging reinvented!

With the ChargeLounge the fast charging concept in e-mobility has been reinvented: It offers high-charging capacity for all EVs for a total of 150kW, easy installation and lounge access. The innovative concept is presented for the first time at the 2014 Hannover Messe, April 7-11.
The project has been initiated by the Fraunhofer IAO together with different partners. Among them two Swiss companies: Protoscar and EVTEC provided their knowhow and technology in the field of charging infrastructure. In addition, Protoscar will take care of the business development in Switzerland.
A buffer-battery allows the ChargeLounge to offer a high-charging capacity even though the power it takes from the grid, and the respective costs, are low. Three fast-charging stations provide all available quick-charging standards, in order to ensure compatibility with every electric vehicle capable of fast charging. Sustainable solid wood construction creates both a pleasant atmosphere inside the building and makes it energy efficient. And to make sure that charging time no longer needs to be perceived as wasted time there is even a meeting room integrated in the lounge that can be rented to use the time with business partners or colleagues.
In Switzerland the ChargeLounge will be presented for the first time in Switzerland during the “5. Kongress des Schweizer Forums Elektromobilität”.
