Munich & Ridderkerk, June 5, 2024 – Jolt Energy and Tamoil Netherlands have announced the expansion of high-power charging infrastructure in the Netherlands. The collaboration involves the installation of High Power Charging (HPC) stations at Tamoil stations across the country. Jolt´s innovative approach focuses on urban micro-charging parks with 2 to 4 charging points at high-traffic locations. Achieving high charging speeds of up to 300 kW without grid expansion is possible only with an integrated battery storage system. This also offers the possibility to make a system-relevant contribution to stable grids through functions such as load management, peak shaving, and grid frequency stabilization, and furthermore, to better integrate renewable energies.

In recent months HPC charging stations have been installed at Tamoil stations in cities such as The Hague, Maastricht, Groningen and Eindhoven. The rollout of additional locations will continue throughout the year. Jolt aims to bring fast charging to cities in Germany and the Netherlands through partnerships with site partners like Tamoil. Additionally, Jolt collaborates with various entities such as retail chains, commercial real estate companies, quick service restaurants, and municipalities.

“Our HPC charging service was designed specifically for densely populated areas, where high-power charging would otherwise be impossible due to slow grid expansion. Our technology is particularly suited to the needs of the Dutch market,” explained Maurice Neligan, CEO of Jolt. “With Tamoil as a site partner, we can significantly contribute to helping the Netherlands achieve its climate goals.”

The partnership with Jolt marks the beginning of rapid electrification at Tamoil locations to meet the growing demand for fast-charging options for electric vehicles. The HPC infrastructure, featuring an integrated 200 kWh battery storage, is an excellent solution to quickly and flexibly expand Tamoil’s offerings without the costly and lengthy process of expanding the overloaded Dutch power grid.

With a charging power of up to 300 kW, electric cars can gain over 100 kilometers of range in just five minutes, much faster than conventional AC or DC charging stations. In densely populated areas, space efficiency is another crucial factor. A Jolt HPC station can replace around 15 conventional AC charging stations, saving parking space and providing room for bike paths, sidewalks, and public transport.
