"This is about seven times faster than REV's public charging stations in the Perth metro area and about 25 times faster than home-charging," Professor Braunl said. The station can charge vehicles with either the US/European Combo CCS standard or the Japanese CHAdeMO standard, which cover all fast-charge-capable electric vehicles currently available in Australia. Professor Braunl said the $30,000 station had been donated to REV, with $10,000 installation costs shared by an Australian Research Council Linkage Project grant to research Electric Vehicle Charging Patterns and UWA's Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics. "With 50kW of DC charge power, the charger location had to be carefully chosen because it requires sufficient power reserves from a nearby building," Professor Braunl said. "Fast-charging stations will change the game for electric vehicles, as they separate parking from charging. During the ARC Linkage project study charging stations were sometimes used more for parking than charging, but this will not happen at this fast-charging station, since usage is limited to 30 minutes after which the driver has to move the electric vehicle." Professor Braunl said fast-charging stations could also make commercial charging networks profitable, because they attracted more customers each day and offered a main page premium charging service for owners. The REV team is currently investigating the differences in energy efficiency between slow home charging, medium-fast AC charging, and fast DC charging.
