Kempower, which recently established a production facility in Durham, N.C., shipped its first satellite EV charging stations produced in the United States to Alberta, Canada, which is known as the heart of the Athabasca oil sands.

"Even in an area that's home to the fourth-largest oil reserves in the world, it's clear that green transportation, particularly an infrastructure of DC-FC EV charging satellites, will no longer be optional," said Pascal Flambard, Kempower's business development manager. Flambard spent months negotiating the first sale and shipment of Kempower's EV charging solution to the company's first Canadian partners - ChargeStop and EVLution, including a 600 kW power unit and Charging Satellites.

"The world is taking notice, and in many places, decisions are being quickly and aggressively made to reduce greenhouse gas emissions," said Tim Joyce, president of Kempower North America. "We are thrilled to provide an EV electrification solution that if adopted worldwide will be key to saving this planet for future generations."

This year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed federal emission standards recommending that 67% of future light-duty and 25% of heavy-duty vehicles sold are electric by 2032.

Those standards rely on infrastructure that requires a technological difference that could be served by Kempower's products, according to Marcus Suvanto, Kempower North America's director of operations and business development.

The company also is in discussions with municipal designers in Canada, New York, Raleigh, Chicago, San Francisco, and more to provide charging solutions.
