L-Charge is a Russian-Amerivan manufacturer of EV charging solutions. The company has announced its plans to start commercial operations in Spain, namely in Barcelona and Madrid, by April 2022. L-Charge’s charging stations are mini power stations capable of generating and storing energy and charging electric cars with no need for a grid connection. The power is generated from compressed natural gas or hydrogen. We describe such an innovative solution in this post.
L-Charge EV charging soon in Spain
According the official release, L-Charge has already came into negotiations with Fundacion Nacional de Movilidad Electrica for further cooperation and was highly praised by Spanish solar power generation companies. Currently, the service provided by the Russian-American group is working in Moscow and is expected to come into full operation in Abu Dhabi by the end of this year.
No connection to an external power grid
Designed for highways, gas stations, and parking lots, L-Charge’s stationary charger does not require any staff or connection to an external power grid. Chargers run on an internal supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) or LNG/H2 mixture. 600 kW power generators are the core of the L-Charge stationary mini-power station for fast charging of electric vehicles.
«An essential problem still separates us from the massive transition to EV – the underdeveloped charging infrastructure. It is possible to solve this problem quickly by deploying an off-grid network of charging stations», stated Dmitry Lashin, CEO of L-Charge.
