  • Ricardo assists Future Transport Systems to develop its E-STOR fast EV charger

    06 October 2015

    With increasing demand for fast, high-capacity electric vehicle (EV) charging, Future Transport Systems (FTS) has developed – with support from Ricardo – a highly innovative and cost-effective solution based on reusing EV batteries in a ‘second life’ application.

    As the number of EVs in use on the highway increases, local electrical distribution networks will be subjected to additional loads as users seek to recharge their vehicles using existing domestic and workplace supplies. Moreover, for convenience, many EV users are likely to require fast charging at capacities above those available from such connections.

    The FTS E-STOR concept is a highly innovative charging ...
