As EVs aren’t today’s state of the art transportation mode, an efficient and controlled charging is not realized. EV charging stations charge the EV as soon as it is plugged in. gridX makes charging smart and considers the actual market price of energy and the source of energy generation. This is due to the fact that a multitude of active energy consumers or a cloudy sky can effectuate a cost-intensive and fossil-fuel based charging process. Hence several protocols are used by the gridBox to operate the EV charging station, the photovoltaic system, and the battery storage of our customers in a efficient, self-sustaining and optimized manner.
We enable the bidirectional communication between the electric vehicle and the grid operator, which is one of the crucial steps in the smart grid.
