Al Masaood Power Divisions general manager Rasso Bartenschlager talks about the companys latest charging solutions
The global push for sustainability and decarbonisation has brought electric vehicles (EVs) to the forefront as a promising solution against greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. However, the widespread adoption of EVs presents challenges in terms of charging infrastructure and its environmental impact. That's where off-grid EV chargers come in, representing a game-changing technology that not only supports sustainability but also accelerates the decarbonisation process.
Off-grid EV chargers offer a sustainable and decentralised solution that addresses the limitations of traditional charging infrastructure. By generating and storing renewable energy on-site, these chargers reduce reliance on fossil fuels and minimise carbon footprints.
The Rise of Off-Grid EV Chargers
1. Drastic Reduction in Emissions: Custom-designed off-grid chargers significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants, contributing to an eco-friendlier world.
2. Addressing Accessibility: These chargers solve the accessibility issue by enabling EV adoption in remote and underserved areas without traditional grid infrastructure. They bring sustainable mobility options to every corner of the country.
3. Supporting Emergency Response Efforts: Off-grid chargers provide a dependable source of renewable energy, supporting emergency response efforts during natural disasters like hurricanes, floods, wildfires, and grid failures. They ensure that electric vehicles remain operational even in challenging situations, enhancing overall resilience.
4. Continuous Energy Supply: The integration of energy storage systems ensures a constant energy supply, even during non-optimal renewable energy generation. Users can rely on off-grid charging infrastructure without worrying about power interruptions or fluctuations.
5. Scalability and Future-Proofing: Off-grid charging infrastructure is highly scalable, allowing it to meet the growing demand for EVs as technology advances and renewable energy becomes more affordable. This technology is future-proof, ensuring that it remains relevant and efficient in the years to come.
Pioneering the Off-Grid Charging Revolution
At Al Masaood Power, we are committed to spearheading the transition towards a sustainable future in the UAE. With our legacy dating back to 1970, we have established ourselves as leaders in the industry through our focus on innovation, state-of-the-art technology, and infrastructure.
In alignment with our sustainability endeavours, our Power Division has launched SHAMS+ Charge, our own off-grid charging brand. This marks a significant milestone in our commitment to driving the decarbonisation of the transport industry and promoting electric and green mobility.
SHAMS+ Charge is the first off-grid ultra-fast and smart charging solution designed to meet the charging needs of the construction, industrial, and marine sectors. Our network of charging stations spans both rural and urban locations, ensuring that even the most remote and inaccessible areas have access to reliable and sustainable EV charging.
What sets SHAMS+ Charge apart is its reliance on solar power input and output harnessed from Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS). This technology makes our solution scalable and flexible, catering to a wide range of charging needs. With the highest charging speeds possible, users can achieve a range extension of over 100km in just 10 minutes. We are revolutionising the charging experience, providing EV owners with convenience and efficiency for their everyday journeys.
As the Middle East witnesses a transformative shift towards EV adoption, amplified by extensive government support and a collective drive for greener and sustainable transportation solutions, SHAMS+ Charge represents a pivotal solution driving the widespread adoption of electric and green mobility. With abundant renewable energy resources and a strategic focus on off-grid EV charging infrastructure, SHAMS+ Charge is poised to accelerate the UAE’s journey to revolutionising transportation and achieving a more sustainable future for generations to come.
