Revolutionizing Gas Stations: GVR Integrates DC Fast Charging!


Gilbarco Veeder-Root (GVR), a major player in fueling technology, is set to revolutionize gas stations by integrating DC fast charging systems. Teaming up with EV charging tech company SK Signet, GVR has launched KonectDC, a fast charging system designed to seamlessly integrate into gas stations, creating a smooth transition to electric mobility.

Why does it matter?

This move marks a significant shift in the fueling industry towards embracing electric vehicles (EVs). GVR’s extensive network, with over 500,000 installations globally, will now offer fast charging solutions right alongside traditional fuel pumps. With KonectDC, GVR aims to make the adoption of EV technology more appealing to fuel retailers by reducing costs and streamlining operations.

KonectDC isn’t just an add-on to existing gas stations; it’s fully integrated into GVR’s payment and service systems. This integration allows for a seamless experience for both fuel retailers and EV drivers, offering convenience and efficiency in a rapidly evolving market.

Om Shankar, vice president & general manager of Konect, highlights the importance of simplifying the transition for fuel retailers, emphasizing the potential for a lucrative business case in the EV market. By providing a solution that is easy to implement and cost-effective, GVR is positioning itself as a key player in driving the shift towards electric mobility.

How is it going to shape the future?

The integration of DC fast charging systems at gas stations represents a significant step towards a more sustainable and technologically advanced future. As EVs continue to gain popularity, having fast charging stations readily available at gas stations can help alleviate range anxiety and encourage more drivers to make the switch to electric.

By making EV charging more accessible and convenient, GVR’s initiative with KonectDC paves the way for increased EV adoption and a cleaner transportation sector. This move not only benefits fuel retailers by offering them a new revenue stream but also contributes to the overall goal of reducing carbon emissions and building a greener future for transportation.

With KonectDC already available in the US and Europe, and plans for further expansion into additional markets, GVR’s integration of DC fast charging at gas stations is set to have a lasting impact on the way we refuel our vehicles and accelerate the transition to electric mobility.
