This product is to be used when charging an electric vehicle via a standard wall socket. It will lower the investment costs for deploying charging points in a city.
Business & service models to support the roll-out of electric vehicles in cities
Electrification of road transport is as an important element in the transition towards zero local emissions. For cities the challenge is to find the most appropriate path towards electrified transport in cities and to identify the necessary investments (f.i. in charging infrastructure) along this path.EVCITY sets up a guideline for cities and all stakeholders involved in the roll-out of electric vehicles and supporting infrastructure. This guideline describes the market roles and business opportunities for new products/services in this mobility and, partly regulated, energy market. It gives information on the practical aspects when installing charging infrastructure and on some relating regulations aspects.Also, EVCity proposes optimised solutions for charging electric vehicles in cities, through a smart charging adaptor that drivers of electric vehicles can use to charge their vehicle via a standard wall socket. It will lower the investment costs for deploying charging points in a city. By connecting with the smart charging adaptor, the smart energy payment service will enable fleet operators to offer a replacement for the fueling cards of lease cars. And the connected peak shaving service enables the reduction of peak loads that might be caused by the simultaneous charging of multiple electric vehicles. The intelligent data logger & data mining service will generate the important data at chosen points in the charging infrastructure, and will be used for peak shaving solutions.
