Rodney Chan, DIGITIMES, Taipei 0

Delta Electronics has announced its electric vehicle (EV) charging station in Yokohama, jointly developed and operated by the Taiwan-based company and Japan's energy firm Idemitsu Kosan, will embrace a new business model.

The former Idemitsu gas station operates under a "park and charge" concept, creating a new business model for traditional gas station operators by enabling a smart retail and smart energy ecosystem, Delta said.

The business integrates Delta's energy storage, power conditioning system, EV chargers, DeltaGrid IoT energy management system, charging payment EZQC app, retail IoT solutions and consumer brand Innergie's products that enable a boutique cafe, said Delta.

It is a place where drivers can charge their EVs while spending time in the cafe, Delta said.

The station has also been designated by the Yokohama government as an emergency EV charging base in the city's disaster response plans.

Ping Cheng, CEO of Delta Electronics, said, "In the energy-intensive fields of buildings and transportation, Delta provides IoT-based smart energy-saving solutions that enable smart energy management and a safer, healthier and more comfortable living environment in cities. We feel honored that this innovative station can contribute to Yokohama's disaster response initiatives."
