Kempower and partner company eTerminal join forces to deliver rapid charging at service stations in Estonia. The project’s first stage will see 73 charging points installed at 25 locations along Estonia’s main roads, boosting the country’s EV charging infrastructure. Kempower and eTerminal will install rapid charging points at all service stations operated by the Terminal Group. The two companies have selected Kempower Power Units with Satellite systems and Station Chargers for the project, which will provide at least 150 kW of charging power at each location. The EU’s European Climate Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency is co-funding the project.
Kempower and eTerminal: how’s the project in Estonia doing
The team delivered the first charging point earlier this year, with the project expected to be completed by the end of 2024. After completing the project’s first stage, Kempower and eTerminal will install further chargers at all Terminal Group service stations and expand the number of charging points at live locations when needed to support the increasing numbers of EVs on the road.
Indeed, Estonia is one of many countries in the European Union that has pledged to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 as part of the European Green Deal. A significant aspect of this commitment involves decarbonizing its transportation sector, which is currently responsible for 20% of the country’s CO2 emissions.
