    Hitachi Energy’s Grid-eMotion Fleet solution supports high-capacity charging for electric vehicles at major commercial truck depot in Stockton, California and paves way for sustainable transportation

    California, March 19, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hitachi America, Ltd. (Hitachi), Hitachi Energy, and Penske Truck Leasing today announced the launch of a large-scale, centralized electric truck charging solution. This groundbreaking project supports Penske’s electric truck deployments for its customers in the Stockton, California area. 

    For this pilot initiative, Hitachi Energy has supplied Penske with its state-of-the-art Grid-eMotion Fleet EV charging system. The integrated direct current (DC) fast charging solution is designed to scale up and deliver multi-megawatt level charging capabilities, tailored to meet the demanding requirements of truck fleets of varying sizes.

    The new system features include its ability to reduce space requirements up to 60 percent compared to conventional charging systems. Additionally, it cuts cabling needs up to 40 percent – ensuring effective use of resources while maintaining high-capacity charging for electric vehicles (EVs).

    “Investing in our capabilities with electric vehicles and charging solutions is crucial as our customers seek to decarbonize their fleets and comply with emissions regulations,” said Art Vallely, President of Penske Truck Leasing. “Robust public and private charging infrastructures are essential to ensure the viability of commercial electric trucks in the future.”

    Penske has been a pioneer in adopting battery electric commercial vehicles and made substantial investments in testing, maintaining, and expanding charging infrastructure to support these vehicles. The company has been continually testing and operating EV trucks across its leasing, rental and logistics fleets in various industries including retail, manufacturing, grocery, quick-service restaurant chains, medical, automotive parts, among others.

    Hitachi Energy’s Grid-eMotion Fleet charging system in Stockton is already being used to charge a growing number of EVs across light-, medium- and heavy-duty applications. Its 10-pedestal system can charge as many as 10 trucks on-site up to 100kW or five trucks up to 200kW, showcasing its versatility and scalability for Penske’s fleet operations.

This installation in Stockton will provide ‘real world’ experience and significantly enhance our collaboration with Hitachi.”
