  • (1888PressRelease) March 02, 2011 - The combi-station from RWE combines alternating current charging (AC) technologies with the speed advantages of direct current charging (DC). With a capacity of up to 22 kW AC and up to 50 kW DC, the charging station allows up to six or twelve times faster charging of electric cars compared to a common domestic socket. The combi-station satisfies international safety standards such as immediate cut-off of the current flow when the charge plug is removed and an automatic vehicle check.

    * European premiere at the Geneva Motor Show
    * Direct payment via cash card and per SMS

    Carolin Reichert, Head of E-Mobility at RWE Effizienz GmbH: "The combi-station from RWE is a real innovation. It will make ultra-fast charging of electric cars an everyday occurrence wherever they are parked, be this on shopping centre or company car parks." Another positive comfort aspect: the electricity taken from the combi-station can be paid for directly on the spot with a cash card or per SMS on your mobile phone.

    RWE is a pioneer when it comes to creating a nationwide charge infrastructure: Germany already has over 570 RWE charge stations in more than 100 cities where electric cars can be charged with "green electricity" from 100% renewable sources.

    RWE began expanding the charge infrastructure for electric vehicles throughout Europe last year. There are currently RWE charging posts in 13 European countries including Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands and Poland. E-mobility is a European challenge for RWE. The infrastructure partners in the relevant countries are national and regional energy suppliers, companies and fleet operators as well as large cities and municipalities.
