High-powered charging standards in development

Depending on the fleet size, daily mileage, and kind of operation, there are several alternatives for the wired stationary charging infrastructure to accommodate battery-electric trucks' various demands. These possibilities vary from slow alternating current (AC) charging with power under 43 kW to fast and ultra-fast direct current (DC) fast charging with power up to several MW (in development).
These chargers may be found in a variety of places. Depot charging is used for overnight charging and is situated at the operator’s terminal. Trucks utilise destination charging while loading and unloading at places like retail stores, distribution facilities, and multi-modal terminals like ports. In public areas with easy access, public charging is available day and night.

Hardware and software standardisation are essential for allowing economies of scale, lowering development costs for truck and charger manufacturers, assuring interoperability, and enabling a thriving global used ZEV market. Similar to the market for light-duty vehicles, there are now a number of different charging standards; CHAdeMO/ChaoJI is mostly utilised in Asia, whereas CharIN is primarily used in Europe and North America. Other nations are still determining which standards to implement
