Nuvve deploys 16 electric school bus charging stations

The Mt. Diablo Unified School District serves 29,000 students across more than 50 school sites.

Nuvve Holding Corp. has deployed 16 Nuvve PowerPort charging stations for Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD) in the San Francisco Bay Area. The charging infrastructure will help MDUSD operate new electric buses recently acquired through a Carl Moyer Program grant aimed at reducing emissions from heavy-duty vehicles. MDUSD serves 29,000 students across more than 50 school sites. By working with California-based Blue Bird Corporation dealer, A-Z Bus Sales, the district was awarded $3.4 million to update their fleet to electric.

Nuvve provided 16 Level 2 AC charging stations outfitted with its software to help manage the fleet’s charging needs. Nuvve says its Level 2 AC solution charges bus fleets at off-peak times when utility rates are low and allows fleet managers to view vehicle charging and generate monthly reports.

At Auto China 2024, CATL unveiled Shenxing Plus—an LFP battery that achieves a range above 1,000 km. (approx. 621 miles) with 4C superfast charging. CATL said the cathode of Shenxing Plus is made with a granular gradation technology, which places every nanometer particle in a position to achieve ultra-high compact density. The company adds its proprietary 3D honeycomb-shaped material to the anode, which it said boosts the energy density while effectively controlling the volume expansion during charge and discharge cycles. According to CATL, the single-piece casing also optimizes the internal space utilization, allowing the Shenxing Plus cells to reach a high energy density level. At the system level, the company said its Shenxing Plus battery pack has a topological structure optimized on top of module-free CTP 3.0 technology, enhancing the packing efficiency by 7%. The Shenxing battery system's energy density surpasses the 200 Wh/kg threshold for the first time, reaching 205 Wh/kg, making ranges over 1,000 kilometers a reality.
