By incentivising EV owners to charge when renewable energy production is above the demand on the grid, controllable charge applications are sure to make energy use more efficient as electric vehicles become more popular.
Last year, the Netherlands launched a nationwide effort to have “smart” connectivity with EV charging stations across large networks in order to control the charging load and match it with peak production of renewable energy. In this session we are joined by Jedlix to talk about their pilot program with 40 Tesla owners.
The more than 6,000 Teslas in the Netherlands, with a combined peak capacity of around 60 MW, have the potential to accelerate the integration of solar and wind power. Consequently, they also contribute to emission-free mobility. In future, services such as this can also be used to prevent congestion on the low-voltage grid.
