Under the new agreement, Delta will provide EVgo with 1,000 ultra-fast chargers with up to 350kW power output.
EVgo Inc., the largest public fast charging network for EVs in the US has announced that it has agreed on a new supply deal with Delta Electronics, a global provider of power and energy management solutions. Under the new agreement, Delta will provide EVgo with 1,000 ultra-fast chargers with up to 350kW power output.
The EVgo charging network in more than 30 states currently serves over 60 metropolitan areas with more than 850 fast charging locations. According to the EVgo, 1,000 fast chargers from Delta are expected to lower the supply chain risk and expand the fast-charging base target in the US.
This supply agreement with Delta is one of EVgo’s steps towards its expansion to provide more charging stations in the US. EVgo has recently announced its project with General Motors (GM) and Pilot Company. This project will result in 2,000 ultra-fast charging stalls and up to 500 travel centers of Pilot and Flying J across more than 40 states.
Delta Electronics, founded in 1971, is a Taiwanese electronics manufacturing company, which brings decades of experience in power and energy management solutions, guided by its corporate mission “to provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow.” Delta operates approximately 200 facilities worldwide, including manufacturing, sales, and R&D centers. The company offers a broad spectrum of smart green solutions across EV charging with strong system integration capabilities.
Cathy Zoi, CEO of EVgo said:
“EVgo is dedicated to making EV charging convenient and reliable for all, which makes it critical that our network is comprised of high-quality chargers backed by a track record of innovation, reliability, and technology leadership. EVgo and Delta share a reputation as industry first-movers. This collaboration will showcase our complementary strengths and expertise while supporting EVgo’s momentum and deployment targets to expand access to world-class EV charging experiences across the U.S.”
One of the rivals to EVgo among the fast-charging networks is Electrify America, which has recently announced a new agreement with IKEA on the installation of fast charging on the IKEA stores.
