Sungrow says that while EVs are quickly evolving, there is an urgent demand for a growing number of EV chargers being considered within the power infrastructure. The DC EV charging station is the local government’s initiative, while also setting a higher requirement for the EV chargers due to land constraints and safety concerns for nearby residents. Being on the roadside itself makes an added convenience for potential users, with the 120 kW fast charging enabling quicker movement after charging.

Sungrow is expanding its business into the EV charging section. It’s a trend that is visible across the segment, with Solar inverter majors making the jump increasingly.  It has hit the market with an increasing number of landmark applications in China. The company says that it’s furthering commitments to the net-zero carbon planet by catalyzing the technical innovation for PV-storage-charger solutions.

As per Sungrow, it may introduce the latest charging solutions for the European market at Intersolar Europe in Munich, Germany.

The electric vehicles’ charging infrastructure is expanding at a fast speed in China owing to faster adoption of electric vehicles. According to Canalys – a global research firm – about 6.5 million electric vehicles were sold in 2021 and about half of them were sold in China only. Data by EV Volumes show that in January 2022 the EV sales in China were a whopping 115 per cent more than the corresponding month in the previous year; the sales growth rate is increasing. Passenger EVs dominate the segment. That has created a strong need for charge as you go infrastructure, or on the road charging stations, rather than specific stations.
