Green Charge Networks and NRG eVgo has entered into a strategic partnership for the deployment of electric vehicle charging stations with integrated energy storage, reports Inside EVs.
NRG eVgo plans to install a network of fast charging stations for which Green Charge Networks will offer energy storage systems, known as GreenStation, which will come in 30 kW/30 kWh modules.

The integrated energy storage will help in taking care of high installation cost as well as offsetting the charging demand.
In case, NRG- eVgo offer a combined CHAdeMO and Combo 2 units up to 100 kW, installation charges would have gone much higher.
For quick refuelling of an electric vehicle, high-powered chargers are essentially needed. However, Power availability, power costs, and capital expenses often create obstruction to property owners who want to deploy this technology.
Integration of intelligent energy storage with eVgo’s charging infrastructure will offer reduction in cost in addition to attracting consumers for a continuous charging experience.
California already offers, five such stations combining DC fast chargers and energy storage. They have plans to increase it up to total 10 by the end of the year.

The company has worked with schools, colleges, cities, and Fortune 500 clients like 7-Eleven to help them realize their sustainability goals through energy storage, stated, Vic Shao, CEO, Green Charge Networks.
As interest in electric vehicles rises, the demand in an economic and sustainable approach through the partnership with NRG eVgo will also rise, added Shao.
NRG eVgo makes it easy for property owners to provide EV charging and attract consumers. Partnering with Green Charge Networks will bring the service to more sites more quickly and expand company’s offering for both drivers and hosts, said,Terry O’Day, VP, NRG eVgo.
