ABB E-mobilitiy earns ENERGY STAR certification

April 28, 2023
This listing assures EV infrastructure site owners and operators that their charging equipment can comply with the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Buy America Act rules–from public to fleet charging needs–in a wide range of power options.

ABB E-mobility, an electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure provider, received the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR certification for DC fast chargers that range from 20 kW up to 180 kW, including chargers that meet the National Electric Infrastructure Program (NEVI) requirements.

“As a long-time leader in the DC fast charging industry, ABB E-mobility believes in industry-wide standards and certifications, such as ENERGY STAR, that provide certainty and transparency to the market,” said Bob Stojanovic, senior VP for ABB E-mobility in North America.

ABB Terra chargers covered by the ENERGY STAR certification include the “all-in-one” Terra 184, which provides up to 180 kW of power in a compact footprint and can deliver 400 A of high current for faster charging times across more vehicles, the company stated. Additionally, the company said that the Terra DC Wallbox, rated up to 24 kW, meets the needs of lower power DC charging where charging presents load challenges in a facility.

ENERGY STAR Certified DC fast chargers support charging efficiency and standby energy losses, provide energy savings, meet safety requirements, and use Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) for network communications. DC fast chargers that have earned ENERGY STAR certification can support up to 1.5 MWh/year in energy savings, averaging over $1,650 in cost savings during the lifetime of the charging station. All EV charging systems that earn the ENERGY STAR label are tested for safety by a nationally recognized testing laboratory and those tests are third-party verified.

Most recently, ABB E-mobility announced local manufacturing was up and running for these Terra 184 and Terra DC Wallbox products which meet a variety of US domestic preference rules, like the Buy America and Buy American Acts.
