Quick charge uses a greater electric intensity and, in addition, it delivers the power in direct current, obtaining an output power of the order of 50kW. This solution is what, from the point of view of the customer, resembles its current refueling habits with a combustion vehicle.
Electrical requirements are higher than in conventional recharge. This may imply the need to adapt the existing electricity grid. For example, the power required for this type of facility is comparable to that of a 15-dwelling building.
Quick recharge means that in 30 minutes 80% of the battery can be charged.
The conventional charge is realized in a single-phase alternating current, to a maximum power of between 3.7 kW and 7,2kW. While the quick charge uses direct current, at a maximum power of 50 kW.
Nowadays, we are actively working to increase the number of recharging points on the roads. CIRVE project main goal is to deploy 40 new recharge points.

Monitor Deloitte Consultancy in its Report “A decarbonised transport model for Spain in 2050: recommendations for the transition” estimates that between 6,000 and 11,000 million euros of investment are needed until 2030, which means an average of about 650 million a year in incentives, to make clean vehicles more attractive, and to create a recharge network. For this reason, the EU is making progress in opening up the market for recharging infrastructures.
The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) is a key EU funding instrument to promote growth, jobs and competitiveness through targeted infrastructure investment at European level. It supports the development of high performing, sustainable and efficiently interconnected trans-European networks in the fields of transport, energy and digital services. CEF investments fill the missing links in Europe’s energy, transport and digital backbone.
