October 31

ElaadNL is constructing a comprehensive handbook to Smart Charging. For the second day of the Testival we will use it to guide our way through the future of charging electric vehicles. This second day will feature presentations, lectures and workshops related to the following four themes; the layers of implementing Smart Charging: Technology, Communication, Organisation and Legislation.

Technology – Making our hardware happy

What technology do we need and how do we implement it? How can we create a smart ecosystem for our electric vehicles that can send and receive data?

Communication - Let Tech do the Talking

Smart Charging requires smart appliances that can talk to each other, speaking the same language. What routes should the most optimal form of communication take and what do we need from protocols?

Organisation – Who charges who?

A lot of actors are involved in Smart Charging: EV-drivers, CSO, DSO, Back office, aggregators, OEM, municipalities etc. All these stakeholders can have different interests and targets. We need to set up a system in which smart combinations, rules and checks make sure that everyone can play their part.

Legislation – Smart rules for Flexible charging

In this session we will take a look at the current contracts, laws and regulations and what choices need to be made to implement Smart Charging for mass deployment. Where do market and municipals meet? Who needs flexibility and who can deliver it?
