TAIPEI, Taiwan, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Delta, a global provider of power and thermal management solutions, announced today it has joined the International Electric Vehicles Initiative EV100, becoming not only its first member from Taiwan, but also its first electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions provider member. Delta is committed to promoting the transition to low-carbon transportation and to addressing climate change by providing EV charging infrastructure at its own major operation facilities around the world by 2030, and by offering incentives to employees and customers to use EVs in their daily lives.
The EV100 is a global initiative launched by The Climate Group in 2017 to accelerate the low-carbon transition of transportation through companies and government organizations with global influence, and to meet the UN’s target of less than a 2% increase in global temperature. Currently there are over 20 international companies that have responded to the initiative, including HP, Unilever, IKEA, and Baidu.
Delta’s spokesperson and assistant vice-president of Corporate Sustainable Development, Mr. Jesse Chou, said, "E-mobility is an integral foundation of sustainable cities and we must accelerate its adoption. Delta, guided by its corporate mission, ‘To provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow‘, is continuously utilizing its core competencies in high-efficiency power electronics and system integration to develop not only smart energy infrastructure for cities, but also crucial automotive electronics for the world’s leading EV manufacturers. Convenient EV charging stations influence our employees’ attitudes and desire to make a difference. In fact, Delta has already installed more than 40 EV charging stations at its global headquarters, regional offices and manufacturing facilities. In addition, we further reduce carbon emissions by providing electric shuttles to employees in our factories."
In response to the global boom in EV charging networks, Delta has leveraged more than 40 years of technical capabilities in energy conversion and management to provide industry-leading EV charging solutions. It has recently commenced work on a trendsetting research program, with 50 percent cost-share by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), to develop a solid-state transformer (SST)-based extreme fast EV charger (XFC) with industry-leading capacity up to 400 kW to facilitate capable EVs a 180-mile range with less than 10 minutes of charging. Early data and results from the program will offer automotive manufacturers, technology providers, cities and utilities with a broader understanding of how fast-charging will affect demand response efforts within specific circuits. The project will also provide insight into how renewable energy generation can be integrated to minimize the impact of XFCs on electricity grids.
