The government body ofgem, are making smart meters compulsory in houses by 2019. Plug-in vehicles and chargepoints could have the potential to interact with the system as smart appliances. This would allow them to respond to price signals and potentially to respond dynamically to real-time signals sent to plug-in vehicles via a future smart grid.
SMART CHARGING CAN OFFER:
• A common application layer and protocols allowing, through the ‘end-to-end’ smart metering system, remote communication with compatible chargepoints and plug-in vehicles;
• The opportunity to meter and transmit plug-in vehicle usage separately, allowing energy suppliers to develop tariffs specifically for plug-in vehicles; and
• The ability to support dynamic Demand Side Response (DSR) in conjunction with a future smart grid, potentially allowing plug-in vehicle recharging to respond to signals from the grid in times of high electricity demand or high generation from wind.
We can install a smart charging system into houses to enable these technologies and efficiencies to happen.
TOGETHER CHARGING A BRIGHTER FUTURE
