As part of the previously reported broader introduction of electric trucks in North America, Volvo Trucks will be cooperating with the charging infrastructure specialists Greenlots, as well as other partners including ABB, who will help set up charging infrastructure in warehouse facilities in southern California.

The project will be one of the first in North America, which use the new SAE J3068 charging standard for heavy utility vehicles in real world tests. It is similar to the European norm IEC 62196 for Level 2 or CCS charging.

Together with the Burns & McDonnell company, the new charging stations are being developed, manufactured and installed. These will be integrated with local photovoltaic panels and energy storage systems. Greenlots is also providing access to their SKY Enterprise software platform for the venture, which manages the charging stations, including AC chargers and DC fast charging units with up to 150 kW. Peter Voorhoeve, the president of Volvo Trucks North America, adds: “From solar energy harvesting at our customer locations, to electric vehicle uptime services, to potential second uses for batteries, this project will provide invaluable experience and data for the whole value chain.”
