Smarter than ‘Smart Charging’

The electric vehicle (EV) revolution is here, and with it comes the demand for smarter charging solutions. Peak Energy puts the future of EV charging at your fingertips with a refined approach to ‘smart charging’. Our system gives you complete control, optimizes the entire process, and saves you money.

Smart charging is about optimizing the charging of your electric car. This is done by using a cloud-based platform that can charge cheaper, more environmentally friendly and in a way that stabilizes the power grid. The platform controls the charging based on factors such as the electricity price during the total charging time, the load on the power grid, the availability of renewable energy and your own needs. For example, you can schedule your own charging so that the car is ready when it is needed, while charging during periods with lower electricity prices or when more renewable energy is available. Smart charging thus provides great benefits to the wallet, the environment and the power grid.

Charge Smarter, Save More

Peak Energy goes beyond basic ‘smart charging’. We take new factors such as your battery size and limitations into account, along with your own preferred charging schedule. Additionally, we utilize minimum charge limits instead of fixed values. This allows for more nuanced optimization based on fluctuating electricity prices. For example, with a minimum limit of 60% and a maximum of 90%, your car charges closer to 60% on expensive days and closer to 90% on cheaper days. This all together means significant cost savings for you as electricity prices vary between different days and by optimizing with even more factors.

The benefits of Peak Energy’s platform are many:

  • User Control: Peak Energy puts you in the driver’s seat (literally!). You decide when, where, and how you want to charge your car. The charging will then be tailored to your needs.
  • Optimization: We analyze more factors to create the most efficient charging strategy, considering variables such as battery limitations, battery size, electricity prices and your needs.
  • Cost Savings: Peak Energy helps you find the cheapest charging times, putting more money back in your pocket.

The Future of Smart Charging is Bright

The EV charging landscape is constantly evolving and Peak Energy embraces these advancements. The introduction of OCPP 2.0.1, a new communication protocol for charging stations, unlocks exciting possibilities for Peak Energy. This improved protocol allows us to gather more information directly from the charging station instead of the car, including real-time battery data. This translates to faster communication and even more optimized charging strategies.

OCPP 2.0.1 also paves the way for innovative flexibility services that support grid stability with frequency regulation. Additionally, it simplifies Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) technology. This potentially allows your car to feed power back into the grid for further cost savings.
