Pioneer Power Solutions — a designer and manufacturer of electrical power systems, distributed energy resources, power generation equipment, and mobile electric charging solutions — announced that it will provide an e-Boost electric vehicle (EV) charging solution to MACAW Energies, an integrated company that will power the system with its low-carbon liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced with natural gas — which, otherwise, would be flared or wasted.
The e-Boost solution will be deployed at MACAW’s pilot project in Texas, which aims to accelerate EV adoption of fleet customers through an ultra-high-speed charging hub for MACAW’s EVs powered on low-carbon, flare gas technology.
Pioneer Power’s innovative e-Boost solution will help MACAW develop its first EV charging hub, including direct-current ultra-fast chargers (DCFC), capable of reaching power levels up to 300 kW for a single vehicle — making a full charge possible for large EVs in less than an hour.
Alternatively, e-Boost can charge up to four EV vehicles at one time, delivering 360 KW of combined power, exceeding the standards set by NEVI for highway EV charging requirements. The LNG to power the e-Boost solution will be delivered to MACAW’s EV charging hub as an affordable and clean energy source.
MACAW will use its liquefaction technology to treat natural gas that would otherwise be flared and wasted to produce LNG and efficiently transport the fuel to deliver low-carbon energy that will power the e-Boost solution for off-grid EV charging. Future MACAW EV charging hubs are planned for various locations throughout the US later in 2024.
“By leveraging MACAW’s gas treatment units and proprietary, cost-efficient liquefaction units, we aim to eliminate natural gas waste and convert it to low carbon LNG, reduce emissions, and allow producers to focus on their core business,” said MACAW CEO, Slim Hbaieb. “The availability of centrally located EV charging hubs is expected to be a game-changer for the transportation industry and fleet owners who are currently struggling with EV charging infrastructure and represents a significant step forward in the journey towards a sustainable energy future.”
