Electric Vehicle Solar Charging Stations
Electric Vehicles (EV) are the future of transport. With the ever-rising pollution and its detrimental effect on the environment, there has been a large scale paradigm shift towards EV’s. A perennial obstacle faced by most EV manufacturers and consumers is the availability of a plug point for charging when on the go. There definitely is a need to move from the GRID based charging stations to standalone off grid solutions for charging.
The key to solving this issue is to harness the abundant solar renewable energy that is available. The solar power based charging station solutions provided by Mesha. are based on the award winning patented Hybrid UltraCapacitor (HUC) technology developed by the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore and commercialized by Mesha. It is the first of its kind that combines the HUC with a battery and a powerful Energy Management System (EMS) that has been developed by Mesha. This combines the best characteristics of both the HUC and the battery. These include the following:
- High energy density - characteristic of the battery
- High power density - characteristic of the HUC
- Quick charging from any energy source - characteristic of the HUC
- Longer life - characteristic of the HUC
This solution utilizes the HUC as the workhorse and the battery as the energy reservoir. The storage energy from the battery will be utilized as and when it is required
