XCharge & SSE Australia Plan 1,000 Fast Chargers In Australia
XCharge intends to expand to Australia with a local partner and will build a network of 1,000 fast chargers
Chinese company XCharge and Southern Sustainable Electric Australia (SSE Australia) announced a strategic plan to install at least 1,000 DC fast chargers in Australia.
XCharge says that it already sold more than 30,000 chargers. SSE Australia, on the other hand, was engaged in the commercial and utility-scale solar products and storage system.
As the Australian EV market is still in its infancy, we guess the plan will be spread out for several years, but even then it’s a huge number.
“To fulfill this ambitious 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.”

Simon Hou, COO and Co-founder of XCharge said:
“We see the huge growth potential in EV charging infrastructures in Australia on its way to the powertrain electrification. Prepared with experiences in both China and Europe, it is the right timing for us to bring our solutions here with our local partners.”
Dong Wang, CEO of SSE Australia said:
“We aim to supply green power to the charging stations; therefore, EVs are also running with green electricity. 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.”
XCharge’s global strategy envisions expansion to Europe and the U.S., but taking into consideration high competition, it will not be easy.
