Furthermore, with an intelligent charge management system it is possible to optimise use of the available connection capacity. It can be used to easily start and monitor charging processes remotely. A clearly arranged view provides information about the state of charge (SoC) of each vehicle at any time.
Charge management also offers the option of limiting the usable capacity of the charging stations and of creating a charging profile that is as constant as possible based on shift schedules. Planning of your charge management system is also included in the Mercedes‑Benz eConsulting offering.
Peak shaving is another option for controlling costs. The aim here is to prevent load peaks when consuming energy, thus avoiding excess capacity charges from the energy provider. These can be incurred as soon as the actual current consumption is in excess of the agreed upper limit. Peak shaving prevents that by reducing charging capacity either by way of manual input or by temporarily interrupting the charging process.
