It is important to note that CHAdeMO stations are not as fast as Tesla Supercharger stations. Superchargers are ~120kW today, where as CHAdeMO stations are 25 to 50kW. So you can expect to "only" to get about 140 miles of range per hour while at a CHAdeMO station. This rate means that a typical lunch break will get you enough to get you to a local destination or the next charging station.

Tesla Model S charging explained (EU)  |  More info

I explain how the different red and blue adapters work. What the difference between AC and DC charging is. The various charging speeds from 13 km/h (230V/13A) to 100 km/h (400V/32A) on AC and 600 km/h (DC superchargers). I also show the 3rd party adapters I have bought and how the extension cord work.

Charging efficiency 400V/16A 3-phase (11 kW)  |  More info

I found out that charging efficiency for 400V/16A 3-phase (11 kW) charging was lower than for 230V/32A 1-phase (7.4 kW) charging. The results so far:

  • 7.4 kW: 89 % efficiency
  • 11 kW: 86 % efficiency

CHAdeMO adapter on 100 kW charger  |  More info

Tesla's CHAdeMO adapter supports up to 50 kW. I tested this on a 100 kW Delta charger at Vestby, Norway. Unfortunately, I was not able to get more than 50 kW speed. I have to test some more to find out if the CHAdeMO plug on the Delta charger can output more than 50 kW or not.

EV charging-station developer EV-Box is looking to expand its global footprint after being bought by international energy company Engie. EV-Box, native to the Netherlands, already provides 26 countries and 980 cities with more than 48,000 charging stations.

EV-Box’s CEO Kristof Vereenooghe told GTM that his company would become a global player in the charger market with Engie's help.

"In the next 10 to 20 years, as costs come down, performance improves and vehicle choice widens, e-mobility will inevitably become one of the fastest-growing industries worldwide,” he said. “But electric vehicles are only one part of a bigger ecosystem characterized by Engie -- a decentralized, decarbonized and digital energy space.”

Engie has also invested in Serviz, which provides a software platform for home repair. According to an Engie press release: “Homeowners use Serviz to instantly schedule everything from a simple handyman repair to installation of a new heating/AC system. Connecting Engie’s building and energy services expertise with the simplicity and scalability of Serviz’s on-demand platform will open a range of innovative service opportunities.”

Although Vereenooghe acknowledges that EV-Box has a part to play in that residential gambit, he emphasized that EV-Box’s ambitions and scope are not limited to that area. EV-Box will find business in any markets "where EV charging infrastructure is required or will need to be met, such as workplaces, commercial [settings], and public municipalities,” he said.

Nevertheless, Vereenooghe sees a variety of potential synergies for his company and other Engie acquisitions, describing EV-Box as being a “perfect fit” with a range of services now available from Engie via partnerships and acquisitions.
