DBE Holding investment in a charging station
DBE Holding, together with its subsidiary GIOEV, has built a charging station for electric cars with a capacity of 300 kilowatts in Yeşilköy, Istanbul.
DBE Holding, together with its subsidiary GIOEV, has built a charging station for electric cars with a capacity of 300 kilowatts in Yeşilköy, Istanbul. Mehmet Taha Pınar, chairman of the holding company, said that this charging station can fully charge an electric car with a range of 500 kilometers in 25 minutes and that the number of stations will be increased to 52 in three months and 156 in six months.
While investments in electric cars are increasing worldwide and in Turkey recently, DBE Holding plans to meet the demand for fast charging stations with a charging station in Yeşilköy, Istanbul, which has a capacity of 300 kilowatts and uses only renewable energy. A car with a range of 500 kilometers can be charged in 25 minutes at the station installed in front of Wow Hotel Istanbul in Yeşilköy, Istanbul.
Mehmet Taha Pınar, chairman of DBE Holding, said that the number of stations would be increased to 52 in the next three months after the first station and to a total of 156 in six months, and that the target for 2024 is to install 400 stations. Pointing out that the stations can charge a car with a range of 500 kilometers in 25 minutes, depending on the charging power of the car, Pınar said, “We are currently the first company to commission an investment with an output power of 300 kilowatts. We are using the technology of the future today. We provide our service from 100% renewable energy. This is a carbon neutral process. We can also verify this. We invested in a solar power plant on an area of 15 acres solely for an electric charging station.”
Station structuring that complements each other
Stating that this project emerged as an idea 1-1.5 years ago, Mehmet Taha Pınar said, “The GIOEV project is not just an electric vehicle charging project. It is also a project where electric vehicles are fed by solar energy, creating a completely green cycle. The technology we use is a program that does not exist in Turkey and is little used as a charger in the world, providing 300 kilowatts of power, using highly advanced solar energy systems and supporting them with software.”
Mehmet Taha Pınar, who also shared information about the regions where the next electric charging stations will be installed, said: “We will go for station structuring in such a way as to complement each other, especially from south to north. We think that from now on the development of the sector will accelerate even more. In this context, we aim to solve the long-standing charging problem regarding electric vehicles primarily on interurban roads. We will establish a network in cities such as Istanbul, Izmir, Hatay, Sivas, Konya and Ankara. Approximately 52 stations will be placed in these cities in the first stage. Their locations have been determined and the agreement has been made. Preliminary agreements have also been made for the 104 stations that will follow. We will also have a presence in the Istanbul-Izmir highway and the Northern Marmara Highway. At the end of all this, our goal is to spread all over Turkey.”
“We will save 147 million dollars”
Stating that they would make a great contribution to both the environment and the economy by the time the planned electric charging stations are completed, Mehmet Taha Pınar said, “When the project is fully realized, we will prevent 1 million 150 thousand tons of carbon emissions. We will positively impact Turkey’s carbon emissions by 0.2%. We will also make a major contribution to the Turkish economy. We will use the electricity from the solar power plants that we will build at the electric charging stations. In this way, we will save USD 147 million a year without any additional burden on the state.”
“The cost of 1 station is worth 60 stations”
Mehmet Taha Pınar pointed out that there were currently 3,500 commercial electric charging stations in Turkey: “92 percent of them have an output power of 22 kilowatts. A station with an output power of 22 kilowatts fills up a car in 6 hours on average. In the sector, there are also stations with a capacity of 180 kilowatts. Many fast charging stations in this sector also have an output power of 120 and 180 kilowatts. This means that a car with a range of 500 kilometers can be fully charged in about 2 hours. At our stations, electric cars with a range of 500 kilometers can be recharged in 25 minutes, depending on their charging capacity. That’s one of the biggest differences that separates us from the sector. With the cost of one of the stations we install, we could install 60 stations with 22 kilowatts of power. With the cost of all the charging stations currently installed in Turkey, we will have installed 150 electric charging stations with 300 kilowatts of power.”
“We will make solar power plant investments”
Mehmet Taha Pınar shared that they would be investing in solar power plants to meet the energy needs of the electric charging stations to be built in the future, and said: “In terms of solar power, we will realize 23 megawatt solar power plant investments by the end of 2023. As far as the legislation allows, we will obtain the electricity for the electric charging stations that we will build all over Turkey from the solar power plant investment to be attained in another province of Turkey.”
