The sport-for-purpose electric racing series, Extreme E has announced a partnership with a modular and scalable fast-charging power source for electric cars, Kempower.

With this deal, the Finnish company has been named the championship’s official charging partner.

Their objective has always been to create long-lasting DC fast-charging solutions that can resist extreme conditions, making Extreme E a perfect testbed for developing and improving such breakthroughs.

Kempower’s modular and scalable charging technology is paired with cutting-edge software to deliver the finest overall user experience. Kempower constantly updates, experiments, and develops DC fast chargers based on data and feedback.

Kempower, which recently showcased its EV chargers at the Desert X Prix in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, emphasizes sustainability, much as Extreme E. Along with charging options, Kempower is working to make itself 100% recyclable by aiming to cut landfill waste to zero percent by 2025 and to cut plastic packaging by half.

Ali Russell, Managing Director of Extreme E, said, “Innovation is at the heart of what we do here at Extreme E, so to partner with Kempower who are changing the game when it comes to DC fast-charging is exciting. Their technology will help us get the cars out on track even sooner and their reliability credentials in extreme environments suit us perfectly. It is also great that we align on many core sustainability goals with their targets as ambitious as ours.”

We are constantly striving to improve our technology, our software and our service. That’s why working with Extreme E, where every competition is extremely challenging to execute, is very motivating and exciting for our team.
