November 29, 2023: EnerSys has secured a deal to supply 50 of its proprietary fast charge and storage system units to infrastructure development firm Landmark Dividend for an undisclosed sum.
EnerSys said on November 8 its lithium ion FC&S, which combines energy storage, backup power and EV fast charging capabilities in compact units, is ideal for installation in retail parking areas for consumers to recharge their vehicles while shopping.
The company will supply Landmark with an initial 15 units to be each installed at separate sites by the middle of next year.
The fast charging application converts AC power to DC, which allows the EV charger to interact directly with the vehicle’s battery system.
Known as a Level 3 charger, the system provides over 150kW of power per pedestal with four pedestals per system and also enabling very rapid EV charging.
EnerSys claims FC&S is the only such system that combines energy management with 1.2MWh of energy storage capacity and dynamic DC fast charging with parallel charging capabilities from a single pedestal.
The Landmark order includes all components including the battery energy storage system, a power conversion system, dynamic DC fast charging pedestals and software.
President and CEO David Shaffer said the Landmark deal was just the beginning of the full commercialization of FC&S.
There is enormous market potential for resilient and reliable power to meet growing demand for public DC fast charging stations, Shaffer said.
