The need for electric vehicle charging points increases rapidly. It will be a challenge for both individual property owners and society in general. The risk is obvious that the power grid, both locally and nationally will be exposed to high loads. This leads to an increased need for investment in new electricity power supply and other infrastructure measures.
At the same time an increasing number of electric vehicles charged via the electricity grid will lead to a growing battery capacity for electrical energy. This new resource will also increase the potential for utilising locally produced solar electricity. The load on the grid will be reduced while the potential for new production of solar electricity increases.
Charging points will be certified for using solar electricity primarily from local or owned production. If locally produced solar energy is not available, the charging point will be supplied with solar power from other producers through issued guarantees of origin. Charging electric vehicles at a certified solar charging point can be sure to always get 100% solar.
If a solar power installation is connected directly to the charging points the vehicles can be charged with higher power when the sun is shining, which requires a straight-forward control. The self consumption can be increased and the purchased electricity reduced. With so-called forecast control the charging can also be controlled by the estimated future solar radiation. With Solarcharge Systems charging peak loads can also be avoided during high electricity prices, or when other needs must be prioritised.
