Alfen’s Smart Home EV Chargers Set to Accelerate Energy Transition
Smart grid manufacturer Alfen has launched their latest EV home charging station, Eve Single Pro-line. Supporting low-carbon energy transitions, this EV charger is designed specifically to suit electric car charging at home. This smart home EV charger comes as a compact single socket or tethered cable and is suitable for any electric car.
Marco Roeleveld, CEO at Alfen, said:
“Energy transition requires all energy users to be informed about, and make and act on, decisions about their energy use – and to be rewarded for doing so.
“Charging an electric vehicle at home impacts the homeowner’s energy bill and smart charging data helps to understand exactly how much. Integrating a smart home EV charger with solar panels, to optimise self-use of own energy, reduces impact on the grid and saves homeowner’s money.
A charger that can ramp up and down, or on and off, in response to other electricity being used in the home, or a time-of-use tariff, is effectively allowing the homeowner to act on their energy decisions and save money.”
Alfen’s latest smart home EV charger is designed for both grid and energy optimisation to boost charging speeds. Plus, this electric vehicle smart charging station interoperates with self-produced renewable energy and flexible energy tariffs.
This smart home EV charger is a low-cost, functional solution that is easy to connect to the internet via ethernet cable. It can then connect and respond to other smart technologies within the home with shared common standards and open protocols.
The new Eve Single Pro-Line charger is smaller than Alfen’s original EV home charging station with a full colour 3.5” screen. It also features:
A screen logo that be changed in the application of workplace charging, so businesses can benefit from uploading their own branding.
Wall mount or an optional mounting pole.
A handy charging status light, making it easy for users to know when their electric vehicle is fully charged.
Choice of Management System
This versatile EV home charging station can be used with Alfen’s management system or any other Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) compliant management system networks.
