Smart Charging Stations

Use Case

Enhancing the efficiency of charging stations

The global transition to zero-carbon energy system is accelerating. Smart charging of electric vehicles provides one of the critical tools to help achieve decarbonisation by storing and deploying resources efficiently, helping users reduce energy consumption and infrastructure costs.

A key concept required for achieving this goal is a better utilization of renewable energy sources that could be strategically used for charging the EV at a high-rated power.

This solution is focused on enhancing the EV charging columns with a smart battery storage system to take pressure off the grid during peak times, leverage better energy prices for consumers, provide auxiliary services to the grid and accelerate the vehicle electrification process in agreement with the latest EU Green Deal.
