    The Story Behind a ‘Rapid’ Rollout with Robert Barrosa

    The Story Behind a ‘Rapid’ Rollout with Robert Barrosa

    Electrify America is installing more rapid chargers across the United States than you can poke a stick at. They currently have over 800 charging stations with around 3,500 individual chargers from 150 kW up to 350 kW. They are currently installing 4 new charging stations or hubs every week. This is a seriously rapid roll out. Electrify America have developed ways to reduce strain on local grids with their installation of multiple rapid chargers. Robert Barrosa is the Senior Director of Sales, Business Development & Marketing for Electrify America, and in this week’s episode of the Fully Charged Show Podcast, he explains how this is being achieved and a little bit about the history of the funding that has made much of this expansion possible. In late 2016, the U.S. Justice Department fined VW $30 billion after the company was caught rigging two of its diesel engines to pass U.S. emissions tests. That figure included the funding new zero-emissions vehicle technology and in particular charging networks. Quite a sensible way of using the money from a corporate fine.

Fun and Informative

I like shows like this that focus on the progress we’re making in transitioning to a cleaner, greener future. It’s refreshing and Robert’s English wit and anecdotes are charming and fun. His huge array of guests are often fascinating to listen to as they lay out the history, science, and goals of renewable energy.

I know most people follow the Fully Charged youtube channel for their EV coverage, but I always preferred the bigger picture stuff like grid development or how renewables are overtaking fossil fuels. Thankfully this show focuses on the latter and in great detail. Highly recommended if you want to feel hopeful for the future while also learning something.
