XCharge, a Beijing-based international electric vehicle  charging solution provider invested by Samsung and GGV ventures, announced its strategic plan together with Southern Sustainable Electric Australia (SSE Australia) to accelerate the deployment of EV charging infrastructures in the country, including at least 1,000 DC fast chargers.

To fulfill this target, XCharge will entrust SSE Australia as one of its overseas business partners for regional distribution of its charging products, including the upcoming 350 kW liquid cooled HPC chargers, as well as establishing a wide-coverage local maintenance network in the country.

Practical experience from XCharge in public charging station location planning, load management will be introduced as well, with a cloud-based SaaS platform for the remote station diagnosis & management and the optimization of vehicle turnover, which XCharge considers key to profit. The Plug & Charge technology is also offered to save the authentication and payment time for e-Taxi and e-Bus fleets.

“We see the huge growth potential in EV charging infrastructures in Australia on its way to the powertrain electrification”, said Simon Hou, COO and Co-founder of XCharge. “Prepared with experiences in both China and Europe, it is the right timing for us to bring our solutions here with our local partners.”

After the collaboration with XCharge, SSE Australia will integrate its green power business with EV charging. “We are working with the key players in the Australian market and delivering the first orders, and we will make sure to supply the top-quality XCharge products with the shortest lead-time as well as developing our own charging stations in Australia”, said Dong Wang, CEO of SSE Australia.
