Tritium partners with Jump Charging to expand access to EV charging

Tritium, a global developer and manufacturer of EV chargers has announced a strategic partnership with New Zealand’s Jump Charging to expand access to fast EV charging across the country.

Jump Charging, is a New Zealand-based green energy charging and fuel infrastructure business.

Currently, there is just one charging station for every 200 EVs registered which would be inadequate with growing demand for battery electric vehicles.

In a statement released this morning, Tritium expects the partnership will help address the growing demand of EV adoption that continues to accelerate in New Zealand by providing appropriate charging infrastructure to the existing battery electric vehicles and growing future demand.

Nearly 20% of the 100,000 light vehicles sold in 2022 in New Zealand were battery electric, and the country is on its way to achieving its 2050 net-zero emissions reduction goals. But with only about 350 public charging stations in New Zealand – equivalent to one charging station for every 200 EVs registered – the government has plans to expand on its initial vision for nationwide coverage of DC fast chargers every 75 kilometres along state highways.

As part of this investment, the government is prioritising public charging hubs to match the rapidly growing number of EV drivers.

Jump Charging, now a Tritium distributor, is committed to play a vital role in electrifying charging infrastructure and is planning to ensure all electric vehicle drivers have adequate access to charging. The first of these sites is an EV charging hub at the new Agritech Business Park in Rakaia, Canterbury. The first stage of this project will include two of Tritium’s modular 150kW fast chargers, each capable of simultaneous vehicle charging to service both passenger and fleet vehicles on site.

The Low Emission Transport Fund (LETF), administered by the Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority (EECA), provided co-funding for both the Agritech Business Park EV charging hub and for the development of the portable, skid-mounted fast charging solution.
