DUBLIN, Nov. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese EV Charging Port Equipment Industry Report, 2014-2015" report to their offering.
It is a consensus of all mankind to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and dependence on oil. The concept that electric vehicles (EVs) can be an effective tool to cut carbon emissions has been widely accepted, and nations all over the world are promoting EVs.
As EVs need to be charged by charging stations, a certain amount of charging stations are essential for promoting new energy vehicles. And charging facilities like charging stations are hardware for the development of EVs, perfect supporting charging facilities will be the key to massive roll-out of EVs. Therefore, EVs and charging facilities are supplementary to each other.
In 2013, global sales volume of EVs totaled 228,000, 17,600 of which were contributed by China. It is predicted that the figure in China will reach 50,000 in 2014 and surge to 146,000 in 2016.
By the end of 2013, State Grid had built 19,000 EV charging piles and 400 charging/battery swap stations (including 209 charging stations and 191 battery swap stations), in contrast to 3,528 charging piles and 118 charging/battery swap stations established by China Southern Power Grid, which lays stress on the construction of intelligent charging/battery swap service network in the Pearl River Delta region.
The connection between charging station and EVs lies in the process of charging, which depends crucially on identification and communication of charging port. The standards for charging port, part of all-important basic ones, involve EVs, charging infrastructure and charging equipment. Hence unification of domestic standards and coordination of world standards are of great significance for promoting EVs.
EV charging ports can be divided into four systems, which have different standards under various conditions of power supply. In the case of AC power, the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) standard enjoys a wider scope of uses, while GB 20234 and SAE J1772 are partly adopted by China and the United States in the four regions with rapid development of EVs; under the DC power supply, Europe fully adopts the IEC standard, China GB 20234, the U.S. SAE+IEC and Japan CHAdeMO+IEC. Moreover, only Europe and the U.S. propose the application of combined charging port.
