Technological concept for network-friendly charging

The friendlyCharge project is dedicated to the development of an innovative charging infrastructure for e-mobility in residential areas in order to enable demand- and network-friendly charging without restrictions for users (e-vehicles). For this purpose, an innovative interface for near real-time communication between the network and the user is being developed and demonstrated. In addition to the technical concept, the project deals with requirements in the area of ​​communication security as well as the legal and regulatory framework.

What you should know
