TCC builds new gen EV charging infra with 7-ELEVEN in Taiwan

Highlights :

  • The first EV charging infrastructure is located at Taiwan’s Hualien’s City’s most popular tourist location, TCC DAKA. The EV charging infrastructure built by NHOA.TCC is said to be the first-of-its-kind to provide the most comprehensive charging technologies for all EVs.
  • Combined with energy storage, the whole system can adjust electricity supply according to peaks and valleys of electricity use to achieve environmental and energy saving goals.

Taiwan Cement Corp’s subsidiary NHOA.TCC and President Chain Store’s subsidiary 7-ELEVEN have announced the “New Energy, New Lifestyle” plan to jointly build a new generation of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure that combines green energy, energy storage and EV charging services.

NHOA.TCC’s first EV charging infrastructure is located at Taiwan’s Hualien’s City’s most popular tourist location, TCC DAKA. The EV charging infrastructure built by NHOA.TCC is said to be the first-of-its-kind to provide the most comprehensive charging technologies for all EVs. Combined with energy storage, the whole system can adjust electricity supply according to peaks and valleys of electricity use to achieve environmental and energy saving goals.

The infrastructure also houses Taiwan’s first pure green EV charging equipment that uses and stores 100% solar power generated from the DAKA Hoping Flower solar installations. In the future, the project plans to add wind power for the goal to transform the infrastructure into a total green energy EV charging station.

TCC Chairman Nelson Chang, said, “Currently there is not enough clean energy to satisfy human needs, therefore, energy saving is the best and fastest way to balance the energy shortage. From now on, energy saving, storage, and creation will be key to industries. For individuals, EARTH HELPER is the basic attitude and lifestyle for each and every one of us sharing this Earth.”

As for the discussions over Taiwan’s island-wide power outage incident, Chairman Chang believes Taiwan must develop smart grids. Chairman Chang added that decentralized smart grids have been adopted in Europe and decentralized smart grids need energy storage to achieve its purpose in balancing the power shortage.

TCC Group claims to be the only comprehensive energy enterprise in Taiwan to simultaneously invest in energy creation (green energy), energy transmission (batteries) and energy storage and has set up bases in Europe. In 2021, TCC Group acquired the majority stakes in Italy-based NHOA as a step to enter the international energy storage and EV charging infrastructure market.
