As part of Rectifier Technologies’ plan to pursue opportunities in the new energy market (presented at the AGM on the 27th of November 2017), the Company is pleased to announce its latest R&D project to introduce high efficiency bi-directional power conversion technology to its product offering. This allows the Company to address new needs in various new energy markets, driven by the rapid adoption of electric vehicles (EV) globally. Bi-directional means that in addition to charging the battery from the grid, when required, the grid can be supported by the battery and energy is transferred from vehicle battery to the grid (V2G). A further application is home support where optionally a vehicle battery can transfer energy to a home during a blackout (V2H). The first R&D prototype is expected to be integrated into the EV Home Charger by end of Q2 2019 and can be in full production by the end of Q4 2019.
Thank you for spending time at our booth earlier this week at EVS31 2018 in Japan. Although day one was canceled due to typhoon alerts, days 2 and 3 were a huge success. Special thanks to CharIN and EVS31 for having us at the show, where we showcased our RT15 EV Charger Kit and 11KW Home Charger, with new contacts established and useful market feedback received. The event was a great opportunity to be connected with industry leaders, experts and manufacturers to drive product innovations in the EV space.
Rectifier Technologies will exhibit in EVS31 2018 (Kobe, Japan), an international electric vehicle symposium, exhibition and conference, between the 30th of September – 3rd of October 2018. We look forward to seeing you there.
