Chargepost Installs 20 AC EV Units for Aussie Trial


Chargepost is set to revolutionize EV charging in Australia by installing 20 dual outlet chargers on existing pole infrastructure in North Sydney. These chargers, designed by City EV, allow for two EVs to charge simultaneously from one unit, reducing installation costs. They can provide up to 7kW single phase and 22kW three phase, with the ability to dynamically share power between vehicles.

Why does it matter?

This innovative approach not only makes EV charging more efficient but also addresses the issue of limited parking spaces for charging. The chargers’ load-sharing capability and 4G connectivity for central management and billing make them a convenient and practical solution for public EV charging needs. The upcoming trial of these units in NSW will provide valuable insights into their reliability and user-friendliness.

How is it going to shape the future?

The successful implementation of these AC pole-mounted EV charging units could pave the way for a widespread rollout across Australia. With the increasing adoption of electric vehicles, the demand for accessible and efficient charging infrastructure is on the rise. By streamlining the site selection and approvals processes based on the trial outcomes, this initiative aims to make public EV charging more accessible for the growing number of drivers without private off-street parking. Through innovative solutions like these, Chargepost and City EV are driving the future of sustainable transportation in Australia.
