As part of a summer tour of Baden-Württemberg, Minister President Winfried Kretschmann visited ADS-TEC at the company's headquarters. On Thursday, 2 September, he stopped off in Nürtingen. The Minister President was especially interested in ADS-TEC Energy's innovative fast charging technologies.
In front of the headquarters, the battery-based ChargeBox fast charging system was presented to the Minister President and a charging process on the ministers car was demonstrated live. Kretschmann was enthusiastic about the charging technology of the compact ChargeBox, which can be used to expand the fast charging infrastructure to the last mile in city centres or residential areas. "In order to achieve the mobility turnaround, we are dependent on the further expansion of charging infrastructure and innovative fast charging systems. Storage specialists like ADS-TEC Energy are innovation drivers in the field of electromobility," said Minister President Winfried Kretschmann.
"It is particularly important that fast charging can be carried out everywhere, because electric mobility should not require route planning or create fear of range," says the CEO of ADS-TEC, Thomas Speidel.
With its focus on IT and energy, ADS-TEC works on today current issues and plays a leading international role, especially with its newly developed battery-based fast-charging technology for electric vehicles.
Minister President Winfried Kretschmann: "In Baden-Württemberg, progressive solutions for climate-friendly and networked mobility are being developed and implemented. With the help of the Automotive Industry Strategy Dialogue BW, we are continuing to work consistently on shaping change and preserving jobs and prosperity in our state."
