Researchers from Missouri S&T and three private companies will combine their expertise to create charging stations for electric vehicles that could charge a car in less than 10 minutes – matching the time it takes to fill up a conventional vehicle with gasoline.

Dr. Jonathan Kimball, professor of electrical and computer engineering, is leading a team that received a $2.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to develop an extreme fast-charging system for electric cars over the next three years. Each organization involved will provide matching funds equal to what they receive from the DOE. Missouri S&T will receive $1.8 million and provide another $1.8 million in cost-sharing. Three corporate partners will receive $1.1 million and provide another $1.1 million in cost sharing.
