OLEV approval for Chago smart EV chargepoints
First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
A range of smart electric vehicle chargepoints from Ensto Chago, that can communicate with each other through cloud software to share available power between vehicles plugged-in at the same location, has been approved for grant support by the UK Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).
Chago says its charging units limit the need for electricity supply grid upgrades, as electric vehicles increase in popularity. They also pave the way for vehicles to store energy and feed it back to the grid in times of peak demand. This potential for balancing energy use with electric vehicles is an important part of the UK's emissions reduction strategy.
