IEVS: Number Of CCS Combo DC Fast Chargers In Europe Hits 4,000

Sun Jan 21, 2018 5:52 pm

Europe begins the year 2018 with some 4,000 CCS Combo DC fast chargers – around 3,800 were installed in three and a half years, since its mid-2014 introduction. New installations are accelerating as in 2017 1,250 new chargers were installed, which means infrastructure expansion of more than 45% year-over-year.

The growth and locations of the Combo chargers is tracked by the CCS Charge Map.

A significant characteristic of CCS Combo locations are that they are also multi-standard chargers, with both CHAdeMO and/or 3-phase AC type 2 along for the ride.

Typical power output is between 20 to 50 kW, but there are also 100 kW units popping up.

Total number of CHAdeMO in Europe exceed 5,000 but latest report is few months old. . . .
