What is Smart Charging
Smart charging entails the “charge-power-management” of an electric car.
The charging speed adapts itself to the amount of available space in the grid.
This means that sometimes charging will be fast and sometimes slow.
Smart Charging & Your Advantages
With Smart Charging you can manage the charging power of electric cars. This is done by linking the charging speed of the car to the available amount of power on the grid. If it is busy on the grid, for example, due to many cars charging or due to use of other equipment, the charging speeds will adapt itself to a lower speed. When the peak hour is over, the charging speed will rise.
Customers: revenue management – faster ROI – lower investments
Grid operators: less peak capacity – more balance on the grid – avoiding huge investments for grid upgrades
Different types of Smart Charging
GreenFlux understands that different customers have different needs. To be able to satisfy the needs of all our customers, we offer 4 types of Smart Charging
Smart Charging 1.0 – Load balancing. The available capacity is divided over two electric cars. These cars are connected to one and the same charging station.
Smart Charging 2.0 – Local Smart Charging. The available capacity is divided over multiple charge stations within a limited local grid connection. The power demand of all users in the local grid connection is taken into account
Smart Charging 3.0 – Nationwide Smart Charging. A national charge station network is controlled through a cloud platform. The network is connected to the grind operator and to a source of sustainable energy.
Smart Charging 4.0 – Smart Charging. A national charge station network is controlled through a cloud platform. The network is connected to the grind operator and to a source of sustainable energy.
