SmartCharge a critical Part of future Smart Grid solutions

by Anja Westlye on Oct 31, 2019 2:18:08 PM

Meshcrafts has installed Norways first vehicle to grid (V2G) installation with Statsbygg, demonstrating how electric vehicle batteries can become valuable resources for the power grid and building owners. The EV battery is a distributed energy resource that can be used as an asset in the smart grid. At Statsbyggs site the EV battery stores electricity which can either be used as flexible resources in the power grid or reduce power peaks for the buildings/grid operator, as well as propulsion for the EV.

Soon it will be possible to adjust the price of the electricity based on when power consumption is high and when it is low. When people make dinner and wash clothes, electricity will be more expensive than in the middle of the night when most people are sleeping.

EVBnB = AirBnB for EV owners

by Anja Westlye on Sep 10, 2018 1:16:09 PM

Learn how your EV charging station can help reducing CO2 emissions, local air pollution and provide you a small revenue stream.
Charging networks are not always there when you need them, they are often expensive and occupied. If you think back, it is kind of how hotels and motels were back in the days. They were often fully booked and expensive. Then came internet and AirBnB™ and today you can find a super place to spend the night anywhere for the right price.

Vehicle to Grid

by Anja Westlye on Apr 12, 2018 8:22:41 PM

I Norge er vi for tiden i gang med å installere automatiske strømmålere i alle hus. Målet er at alle hus skal være utstyrt med nye strømmålere innen 1. januar 2019. Når de nye strømmålerne er på plass, vil det også bli mulig å regulere prisen på strømmen basert på når strømforbruket er høyt og når det er lavt. Når folk flest lager middag og vasker klær, vil strømmen være dyrere enn midt på natten når folk sover og bruker minimalt med strøm.

Electric Vehicles as your main vehicle

by Anja Westlye on Feb 20, 2018 4:36:28 PM

An electric car is often referred to as a second car and not suitable as the primary car for a family. This statement was probably correct only a few years back. However, as technology progresses, data on driving patterns are collected and first-hand experience from EV drivers are gained, we can conclude that this is not the case. The electric car is the future - it can take you literally anywhere with electricity and can work as the primary car in most cases.
