Epyon has just rolled out Europe’s first commercial electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging station at a fueling depot that is located in the Netherlands, where the Epyon system can deliver up to 50 kilowatts of power. That alone is enough to charge a nine-person taxi-van or a Nissan Leaf in just half an hour. What makes the Epyon charging system different from the rest is its ability to offer several outlets that logically enables multiple vehicles to charge up simultaneously. The charger itself supports remote configuration and Internet-based communications that enables Dutch utility company Essent to bill customers for usage. This is the first fast-charger in Europe, and judging by its reception, it definitely won’t be the last.
