A well-established electric vehicle charging company in the U.K., POD Point releases a new revolutionary charging technology. By extending local energy management, this communicating charge point is capable of converting the charging location into a smart energy hub.
The Solo2 communicating charge point will be launched at the Low Carbon Vehicle event this week.
This combined approach to local energy management forms the basis of the smart grid, and benefits the end users as well. The Solo2 charge point can effectively promote energy efficiency, thereby catering to the local supply and demand. It will alert the users about the usage of electricity, power and costs.
The Solo2 is the country’s first communicating electric vehicle charge point with a GPRS system that enables two way communications between a smart-phone or web-based account and the charge point. The charging cycle can therefore be effectively and remotely controlled. Majority of drivers will take advantage from the system’s feature that includes remote setting of time for charging. Additionally, the users can also enjoy off-peak electricity.
Businesses and corporate charge point proprietors can effectively leverage the amount of electricity being delivered to individual users. Clear automated expense reports can therefore be created with details on the amount of electricity being supplied to each user.
POD Point unveils the new Solo2 communicating charge point this week, during the Low Carbon Vehicle event at the Millbrook Proving Ground. Customers can procure the Solo2 communicating charge point via the POD Point webshop and distribution partners within Europe and the UK.
