ABB Israel CEO: Fast charging stations for vehicles are the right solution

“Today it is clearer than ever that fast charging stations are the key to making Israel an advanced country in the field of using electric vehicles, which are economical and green for the environment,” Ronen Aharon, CEO of ABB Israel, which offers charging and electrification solutions for electric cars, electric buses and hybrids, tells Maariv , Vans, trucks, ships and railroads.

Aharon explains that fast charging stations are the right solution for Israel, due to several factors, which have in common the lack of infrastructure and the technological development of electric vehicles: The supply of electricity to the building and the regulation of the issue between the tenants.

“The second barrier is a huge shortage of public parking in cities,” he adds. “Quick deployment of charging stations will be easier if the government and public authorities take care to promote them resolutely, with the insight that this is the right solution. Also, help from the IEC is needed. Preliminary planning of electrical infrastructure in residential and public buildings will allow almost immediate connection of charging infrastructure And will prevent the creation of unsafe infrastructure, delays and many financial expenses.

Aaron explains that the technological developments in recent years are reflected in the development of increasingly fast electric charging stations. ABB recently announced the launch of the fastest one-box charger in the world, with a maximum output of 360 kilowatts, which will allow charging of any electric car in less than 15 minutes. “Further progress is in the ability of the station to charge multiple vehicles simultaneously,” he adds. “Currently, there are stations on the market for charging two vehicles simultaneously. ABB’s Terra360 station will allow charging of four vehicles simultaneously.”

According to Aaron, it is estimated that there are more than 250,000 public charging stations spread across the European Union, with the leading countries being the Netherlands, France and Germany. There are currently about 43,000 public charging stations in the United States. And as of July 2021, there are 963 public charging stations in Israel. “In the first three quarters of the year, about 7,800 new electric vehicles were delivered in Israel,” he emphasizes. “528% compared to the same period last year – and Israel must adapt to the world and prepare accordingly.”

According to the CEO of ABB Israel, one of the great benefits of using an electric vehicle concerns dealing with the climate crisis: “Moving to electric vehicles will reduce pollutant emissions and air pollution, especially in densely populated urban areas, and help transition to a neutral climate economy. In addition, electric propulsion makes it possible to utilize Israel’s gas resources and contributes to reducing energy dependence on external sources. In addition, the decline in demand for gasoline and diesel for transportation will reduce the state’s dependence on oil imports. “
