Project EV aims to see smart charging software deployed across 100,000 chargers

Mon 13 December 2021 View all news

A new partnership between a software app and an EV charging infrastructure company will see 100,000 chargers provide real time control over charging, providing cost benefits to customers while easing pressure on the energy grid.

Electric Miles will allow users to have access to a range of services including automated charging at the cheapest time using Project EV chargers. The company has already deployed 20,000 chargers in the residential market.

The partnership says that motorists will be able to save 40% on their charging bills.

According to Arun Anand, CEO and founder of Electric Miles: “Most domestic car charging is still done after returning from work between 5pm and 7pm, the same time as demand for electricity goes up as everyone starts cooking their dinner."

Smart charging is seen as important to the future of transport electrification, helping to manage the impact on the electricity grid. The Government has mandated that all funded electric vehicle home chargepoints must include 'smart technology'.

The EV Energy Taskforce, which is convened by Zemo Partnership, this week announced the publication of four new reports, one of which focuses on cyber security and smart charging (news link).
