High Power Battery Charging for Electric Vehicles Register

Tritium is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of DC fast charging equipment for electric vehicles.  Up until recently fast charging equipment operated at the 50kW level, however there is now a rapid push for High Power Charging (HPC) which allows operating at the 350-500kW level per vehicle, with multiple MW per charging park.  James Kennedy, Tritium’s CTO and founder, will present on recent progress in this area, impacts on the grid, practical effects of these charging rates, and future trends in this area as electric vehicles become a mainstream item.

Speaker: James Kennedy
