An advance in the states prepares to broaden its electrical car facilities and technological abilities, this collaboration will permit New York to incorporate fast-charging battery abilities and aid with strategies to phase out gas-powered cars within the next years.
The state will need to incorporate fast-charging battery innovation with regional power grids. ZOOZ utilizes a flywheel-based, kinetic energy storage innovation for its power booster to assist charge batteries quicker.
“Through key strategic partnerships, New York is driving the advancement of cutting-edge clean energy technologies that will have a global impact in the fight against climate change,” Hochul stated. “New York’s collaboration with the state of Israel, a hub for innovative, clean energy technologies, will deliver forward-thinking solutions that will strengthen New York’s EV infrastructure.”

“NYPA has multiple successful partnerships with Israeli firms developing innovative, smart technologies that are helping New York achieve its ambitious climate goals,” stated the authority’s CEO, Justin Driscoll. “This latest technology developed through our collaboration with ZOOZ will enable New York to install more EV fast chargers at more locations while reducing grid impacts, making it possible for more New Yorkers to adopt cleaner methods of transportation.”
