The world is treading towards a carbon-neutral future, and transport electrification plays an important role in reducing CO2 emissions and building an energy-efficient society. Electrification of commercial transportation, trucks, buses and delivery vans is a must now!

What is a EV Charging Hub?

A charging hub is like a large fueling station for electric vehicles, that combines:
1
wide parking spaces for heavy-duty vehicles and bidirectional
2
V2G EV charging that enables energy sharing between the EV batteries and energy markets that normally cannot be accessed by individual consumers
3
vehicle-to-grid (V2G), that combine the energy stored in a bunch of EVs and sell that energy back to the grid to earn revenue and help lower the cost for fleets to electrify
To maintain a balance between power demand and supply, smart technology management is vital in all parts of a power system – generation, transmission, and distribution
The hubs can also feature renewable energy generation from natural, clean sources — solar panels and windmills.

This energy will be stored in the EV batteries and thanks to V2G pushed back to the grid, helping to integrate renewables in a much more predictable and reliable way.

EcoFactor’s solution reduces the number of grid interconnections and supports many fleets simultaneously
A charging hub centralizes the way fleets charge. Constructing the own massive electric fueling station requires intense land development and grid interconnections.

It saves fleet operators the enormous expense of installing infrastructure and expedite their timeline to electrify their fleets.

Types of fleets that could immediately benefit from the EV charging hubs are:
last-mile delivery
ride-hailing and ride-sharing
transit
school buses

Our plans for 2022-2023

1. EcoFactor has been steadily growing EV charging points since 2017
Currently, we provide our customers with access to a public charging network of 700+ EV charging points in Ukraine and neighboring countries. The points include rapid and ultra-rapid EcoFactor Charging Stations.

2. The construction of the first EV Charging Hub is to start in November 2021
It will have ten 300kW chargers, which are capable of adding 300 miles of range to an EV in 20 minutes, with a further 28 chargers to follow in time next year.

3. The EcoFactor EV Charging Hub network project is our wider push to reduce CO2 emissions and to support Ukraine in becoming zero-carbon by 2040 or earlier
These chargers will be rated at 7-22kW and compatible with most EVs.
The first 3 EV Charging Hubs in Ukraine will be ready and start operating in 2022-2023.
