First EV chargers produced in Kempower US factory ships to Canada
As the world explores transitioning from fossil fuels, Kempower’s DC fast chargers play key part of the green climate solution.
Kempower North America shipped its first ETL certified EV chargers made in the US to Alberta, Canada on Thursday, December 14, 2023.
Durham, NC – In-step with worldwide climate talks, and within hours of the release of the COP28 draft; Kempower North America shipped its first EV charging solution made in the U.S. to Alberta, Canada on Thursday, December 14, 2023.
“The world is taking notice and, in many places, decisions are being quickly made to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said President Tim Joyce, Kempower North America. “We are thrilled to provide an EV charging solution that if adopted worldwide will play key part to saving this planet for future generations,” added Joyce.
“Even in an area that’s home to the fourth-largest oil reserves in the world; it’s clear that green transportation, particularly an infrastructure of DC-FC EV charging satellites, will no longer be optional,” said Business Development Manager Pascal Flambard, who negotiated the first shipment of EV charging solution to Kempower’s Canadian partners ChargeStop and EVLution.
“Alberta is the oil capital of Canada, but electrification is mandatory to sustain our future, and the future has already arrived,” added Flambard.
Just this year the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed federal emission standards recommending that 67 percent of future light-duty and 25 percent of heavy-duty vehicles sold are electric by 2032.
The key differentiator of Kempower solution is the dynamically shared power, which is controlled and optimized through Kempower’s own software ChargEye. The solution shipped to Alberta can provide power to 6 Kempower Satellites; each one having the potential to dynamically dispense up to 300KW per plug.
“Kempower is revolutionizing the Electric Vehicle charging industry as it expands offerings of its diverse, DC-FC EV charging programs to North America. We want to accelerate the EV evolution in the ongoing efforts towards a cleaner and more quiet planet for us all,” concluded President Tim Joyce.
Kempower produces NEVI-compliant, reliable, and user-friendly DC fast charging solutions in Durham, North Carolina and in Lahti, Finland, for all electric cars, trucks, buses, boats, and machines.
