Powerstation becomes exclusive distributor of Volt Time charging stations in Belgium

The energy transition is moving on at a swift pace, also in the market of electric charging stations. Due to the large increase in EVs and hybrid cars, charging infrastructure providers can barely keep up with demand, resulting in long waiting times. In order to cope with this shortage and to further expand the current offering with high-quality hardware, Powerstation has partnered up with Volt Time.

Powerstation provides energy and mobility solutions for companies and aims to electrify corporate buildings and fleet as optimally as possible. To further complement its current offering of qualitative charging infrastructure, the company has partnered with Volt Time as the exclusive distributor of Volt Time wall chargers in Belgium.

The charging stations, which can be placed either against the wall or on a mounting post, will be paired with the company's own Powerstation software that manages the daily management of the chargers.

Features for sustainable and economic charging

Erik Groes, CEO of Powerstation, sees this partnership as a strengthening of the offering in response to the energy transition.  "Despite the fact that the shift to more electric and hybrid cars is an important step, the high energy prices are causing enormous pressure on the economic benefit in recent months.  The solar balancing application provides an answer to this." This form of load balancing uses solar energy. Here, the user sets the charging modes via the app in order to make maximum use of the generated energy during charging. In this way, as little green power as possible needs to be injected back into the grid. "In the future, the Powerstation software will also offer 'charging by the hour,' for economical charging at times when the Belpex is low," Groes continues.

Flexibility and ease of use

Sales Manager at Powerstation, Senne Potters, notices a high demand for all-in-one charging solutions. "Users expect an easy-to-handle system that combines all features in one such as regulation of refunds, multiple charging passes at one address, load and solar balancing, capacity tariffs, etc."  This trend was taken into account during the extensive development phase. Berend Simons, co-founder of Volt Time, explains, "During an intensive R&D phase of 2 years, extra focus was placed by Volt Time on the development of the controllers and components. The features were carefully chosen specifically for this charging application resulting in a user-friendly interface. This focus now results in great flexibility not only in service but also in deliverability.  With a production capacity of hundreds of charging stations per month, delivery from the factory in Arnhem (NL) is extremely flexible. This volume is also scalable according to demand."

In the future, Powerstation will further focus on offering a hassle-free and efficient installation procedure by training and supporting local installers with sales and onboarding.
