Taiwan Cement (TCC) has set up the first EV-use power charging station in DAKA via cooperation with President Chain Store, the operator of 7-Eleven convenience store chain in Taiwan, according to the company.

DAKA is an ecological exhibition center established by TCC inside its cement plant in Hualien, eastern Taiwan.

The EV-use power charging station is operated by TCC's subsidiary operator of energy storage systems, NHΩA.TCC, and features 100% use of electricity generated by a rooftop PV system inside the cement plant and combination with an energy storage system also inside the cement plant, TCC chairman Nelson Chang said. NHΩA.TCC will set up additional EV-use power charging stations around Taiwan.

The EV-use power charging stations consists of four charging piles respectively for power charging specifications CHAdeMO, CCS1, CCS2, and J1772. Power supply maker Phihong Technology, of which TCC is a main shareholder, provides power charging piles while Systex is responsible for system integration.

TCC has set up three energy storage systems with storage capacities of 1.2MWh, 5.2WHh, and 4.5MWh respectively in Taiwan, and will expand the existing energy storage system inside the cement plant to 410.4MWh in 2022-2023 and set up one with 107.4MWh inside its cement plant in Yilan, northeastern Taiwan, in 2023.
