Better Place Solution Elements 5 Out and about Charge Spots Cost-effective Standards compliant Networked & intelligent User-friendly design Over-the-air upgrades Backoffice Scalable, distributed software architecture supports mass scale messages between end points of charging network, BPLC back-office, and utility interface. In hand, in the car Behind the scenes Driver Services Trip planning Charge scheduling Battery swap scheduling Road-side assistance Battery Switch Convenient Extends range Enables battery life management
Charging when the wind blows 7 AutOS Intelligent charge control Grid management Intelligent charging Control Center Charge plan – follows production of renewable energy Monitor battery level
Managing the grid: The challenge of the EV 8 EV charged without intelligent charging Intelligent charging follows highest availability of renewable energy Extra power needed for charging EVs Normal power expenditure If all EVs are charging in peak hours the grid will be utilized dramatically compared to today, hence a new distribution net is required (cost in billions) and coal power would be the only solution to meet the demand.
