A network of charging stations for electric vehicles — to be. Already this year, the first Russian Revolt high-tech company, operating in the field of electric transport and charging infrastructure, announced the creation and development of the Russian network of charging stations for electric vehicles and environmentally friendly transport. Revolta network of charging stations will create the necessary charging infrastructure and will serve as a catalyst for the mass withdrawal of the Russian market of electric vehicles. Despite the skepticism of many scientists, businessmen, politicians, public figures and ordinary citizens elektromobilizatsiya planet is growing and will grow. Most neoptimistichnye forecasts predict a rise in the number of electric vehicles in the next five years up to 5 million units. Already, the total worldwide sales of electric Mitsubishi i-MiEV to the beginning of production is 25 thousand units, Nissan Leaf — 20 thousand, Chevrolet Volt — 10 thousand Number of models which stood in 2011, only 15 cars and light commercial electric vehicles will grow in 2013 50. The number of charging stations in Europe in 2012 will grow to 50 million, France is planning in 2015 to create 75 thousand charging points, the United States to the year 2020 — 900 thousand Russian in these forecasts is given not least: by 2017, electric vehicles have We are supposed to will average 10 percent of the park in all segments.
Of course, all of our "elektropark" will have to be somewhere and something to "feed." Charging an electric vehicle from a conventional household outlet is certainly possible, but it lasts a long time (8-12 hours), and besides, not all residents of cities have the opportunity to "throw the wire" to your electric. For faster charging need completely different capacity, the unit they are disadvantageous to the consumer: expensive and the purchase of equipment and its installation, and installation of special wires. Profitable to create such stations for public use, and, taking into account the duration of the charging process — once with the ability to "connect" several electric vehicles. Part of the stations of this should be "killed" power — such as to recharge the battery at a constant current of 80% for 20-30 minutes. These "power point" has already been developed, they are called for short CHAdeMO (conditional translation — "while charging is in progress, you can drink coffee").
Russia's need for charging infrastructure estimated at least 500,000 charging stations of all types. While there are only a few and they are set in Moscow on the territory of JSC "Moscow United Electric Grid" on Sadovnicheskaya street, where you can recharge your electric vehicle (if you have one) for free. But — in fact — only here. Or the house from the "native" outlet.
Revolta company plans to build a network of charging stations in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnodar, Samara, Kaluga and other cities of Russia. In two years, is expected to build a network of 2,000 charging stations and 100 VAC systems express charge. Today it is completed "field" testing the first version of a network of charging stations, started in November 2011. In the second quarter of 2012, net elektrozapravok in Moscow will be put into commercial operation, and within a year they will be opened already in 1000, including 50 complexes rapid charging.
Revolta company has developed proprietary software for these stations, including allowing remote monitoring of their work, as well as RFID-cards to pay for charging. Subsequently, the charge can be paid through credit cards and own a mobile phone (via SMS).
Where charging station will be located? The Company assumes Revolta place them in various public places, including in high-rise parking garage, parking lots of large companies, places of mass recreation, in specialized EZS as well … at existing gas stations. A certain Moscow station network, allegedly, was not against the shelter under his "wing" of a potential competitor. This is all the more surprising that the Company held on "Revolt" and the agency "Interfax" press conference, General Director of "Revolt" Maxim Osorin plain text said: "In the light of increasing fuel costs Revolta network of charging stations will create a much needed alternative to internal combustion engines and will significantly improve the unfavorable ecological situation in the major cities of Russia. "
However, the construction of a network of chargers — business, shall we say, is not cheap. Ltd. "Revolt" was able to attract the cooperation of the international private investment fund Enerfund (founded in 2004 with head office — of Miami, USA). This foundation is funding research in alternative energy, development and production of environmentally friendly modes of transport, and the development of environmentally friendly technologies. Representatives Enerfund announced to invest 1.5 billion rubles in the creation of a network of charging stations Revolta. According to the CFO Enerfund Jonathan New, "in a very short time the company has demonstrated the real potential of Revolt in the development of new products, solutions and services.
The huge potential of the Russian market, the unique design and development program Revolt led to the adoption of a positive decision Enerfund to join the capital of the company. We are confident that solutions Revolt Intellectual urban infrastructure will have good market prospects not only in Russia but also abroad. " Besides the construction of charging stations Revolt intends to develop cooperation with Enerfund in developing new products and solutions in the field of electric transport in the Russian market. We plan to create the Center for Development of products and solutions in the field of charging infrastructure for various purposes, related products for the commercial and public electric, energy storage systems, etc.
There now exists a Technical Board of Revolt, designed to manage and coordinate the development of electric components and charging infrastructure for various purposes, as well as energy storage systems. This board includes experts from Enerfund, a number of Russian engineers and scientists, and its chairman was John Waters, president of the US-based Waters &Associates. This man is famous for being involved in the early development of electric and plug-in electric vehicles to the network, and was one of the founders of the battery electric vehicle for the serial General Motors EV1. Mr. Waters has five patents in the field of technology for electric vehicles. In addition to the Technical Board, John Waters, and became a member of the Board of Directors of Revolt.
According to the press conference, the creation of a network of charging stations in Moscow and then across Russia will be a catalyst mass of the Russian market of manufacturers of electric vehicles, as well as domestic developments in this area. In the spring of this year, the company plans to bring Revolt to the Russian market two commercial electric model of Smith Electric Vehicles (USA). Edison Electric cars are based on a Ford Transit. When the value of the wheelbase from 3300 to 3900 mm, they have the full weight of from 3500 to 4600 kg load capacity from 725 to 2300
kg. Power reserve of them is from 90 to 180 km, the maximum speed — 80 km / h, charging time from the household electric — 8 hours (see "fast" charge of 4 hours). Electric Smith Newton may have a wheelbase of 3900 mm to 5100, the total weight of 7,500 to 12,000 kg and a load capacity of 3230 to 6930 kg. Power capacity of lithium-ion batteries — from 80 to 120 kW • h, motor power — 120 kW. Maximum speed — 80 km / h, range — 50 to 240 km / h, while charging from a standard wall outlet — 8:00. As expected, the cost of kilometers run "younger" model Edison in Russia will be 30 cents, "senior» Newton — 60 cents. Prize to the first electric vehicle in the Russian market.
Recently, it was well known and that the skeptical and sometimes cynical customized professional community of journalists, however, praised the achievements of the Russian company "Rolf Import" and the Japanese company Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) on the conclusion to our first electric vehicle market — Mitsubishi i-MiEV. These companies have been awarded the prize "Golden Horn." In 2012, the prize was awarded for the 11th time. Presented the award to President Klaxon Media Sergey Snegiryov, noting in particular the high level of sales of Mitsubishi i-MiEV in Russia. In the first three months we had sold 41 electric car, which exceeded the figure in a number of European countries. This confirms the maximum openness Russia to various innovations and global trends. In response, the Chief Executive Officer, "Rolf Import", MMC's exclusive distributor in Russia, Andrey Pankov said that "this award symbolizes the recognition of Russian professional community landmark event — the start of sales of the first certified electric car in Russia. It is the merit of the whole company Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, for more than 40 years engaged in the development of electric vehicles to now allow the entire automotive world to begin the transition to a new stage of evolution. After i-MiEV — it is not just the absence of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, it is also a completely new driving experience. This innovative car of the future. " Mitsubishi i-MiEV was the first mass-produced electric Certified supplied to Russia. Today it is the only "one hundred percent" electric car sold in the country. In the coming three years, MMC plans to launch seven new models of electric vehicles, including models with extended range. We hope all of them we can eventually see on our roads. Desirable — new, not second-hand. And with the left wheel.
