Uniper designed this innovative charging infrastructure approach as a process of creativity or proof of concept of the mobile fast charging solution. FEV took the role of providing technical and financial support to the Uniper Company and ensuring the electric cars’ rechargeable mobile power bank. The main issue addressed by Uniper’s power bank for electric vehicles is to cover the peak demands with no need for huge investment into the installation of grid systems and also transformer stations and substations. The process mentioned above ensures that a new one replaces the station once the battery is drained.
Below are some of the key facts and data that revolve around developing the mobile power bank for electric vehicles. There is a proof of concept whereby it provides a total of 75kW of charging power, and this gives room to charge two vehicles at a go with an assurance to cover a total electric driving range of 1000 km. Using the recharging and logistic network handles, there is a 100 percent guarantee of zero CO2 emissions. All the fully charged stations guarantee a seamless energy supply, and the replaced MFC gets recharged at a special charging hub back into the main field.
The first way of support that FEV gave to Uniper was by helping them derive some business ideas and tactics of applying the MFC’s. Before then, they used to conduct some consumer surveys to confirm the general business model analysis. Another important integrator of the mobility ecosystem, the company, made leverage of its extensive partner network to determine state of the art and all components that might affect the market for the PoC, including factors such as battery unit, cooling system, and power electronics.
Additionally, the mobile fast charging method can be classified as an IOT device that gives room for remote organizing and monitoring several operations. To ensure that this quality is met, FEV ensured that they had developed a highly advanced operational management system for error-free functionality of the PoC as well as provide room and access to have real-time data. By adopting the remote monitoring technology, Uniper can easily track some operation states and conditions such as battery temperature, location of the station, acceleration, state of charge, and charging power. The billing process can also be monitored through the backend connection.
