chargeIT mobility Ladesäule im ADAC Test – Das Urteil “gut”

Unkomplizierter Ladevorgang, Kostentransparenz und 24-Stunden-Service – was muss eine Ladesäule können? Das hat sich der ADAC auch gefragt und deutschlandweit öffentlich zugängliche Ladesäulen getestet.

 

Hohen Neuendorf/Kitzingen: Beim großen ADAC Test 2018 wurden in ganz Deutschland 53 öffentliche Ladesäulen für E-Fahrzeuge getestet. Die Plug&Play Ladebox von chargeIT mobility in Hohen Neuendorf schneidet im Test positiv ab. Das Urteil fällt „gut“ aus.

 

Besonders positiv bewertet wurde die 24-Stunden-Hotline von chargeIT mobility. Kunden wird an Ort und Stelle, ohne lange Wartezeit, sofort geholfen. Der Ladevorgang selbst erhielt die bestmögliche Bewertung. Das Zugangsmedium  ist sofort einsehbar und kostenlos, sodass monatliche Gebühren für einen Account entfallen. Somit kann an der Ladestation auch von Durchreisenden, Fremd- oder Neukunden ohne Probleme geladen werden. Dank eines funktionierenden Backends finden die Nutzer im Internet Angaben zur Steckeranzahl und den Steckertypen samt Ladeleistung sowie Informationen zur Verfügbarkeit der Station.

 

An den Ladesäulen der chargeIT mobility sind Preis- und Tarifinformationen sichtbar integriert, um den Nutzer der Ladestationen die notwendige Preistransparenz zu bieten.

 

chargeIT mobility entwickelt und optimiert die Hard- und Software fortlaufend, sodass an den Ladesystemen ab dem Baujahr 2015 ab der Steuerung 3.0 die Preisinformationen im Vorfeld auf dem Display angezeigt werden. Natürlich nur, wenn ein Preis eingestellt ist. Ist das Laden kostenlos, wie an der von ADAC getesteten Ladestation in Hohen Neuendorf, wird keine Preisinformation angezeigt. Alternativ sind die Tarifinformationen auch meist in den Apps von Roaminganbietern ausgewiesen. Ebenso wird die geladene Energiemenge am Ende des Ladevorgangs auf dem Display der Ladesäule angezeigt. Der Strompreis pro Einheit sowie die Kosten nach dem Laden können von registrierten Nutzern auch im Lademanagementportal (LMP) eingesehen werden.

 

Die Preise für eine Akkuladung hängt von vielen Faktoren ab, beispielsweise der Batteriekapazität, dem Ladezustand oder der Ladesäule. Die Folge daraus: Pauschale Empfehlungen können den Nutzern nicht gegeben werden. Die chargeIT hat dafür eine Lösung: Eine Abrechnung nach Kilowattstunden, die sowohl die Zeit, wie auch die Leistung berücksichtigt. Bedingt durch das leistungsstarke Backend, in Verbindung mit dem integrierten Ladecontroller der chargeIT mobility, wird diese intelligente Art der Abrechnung möglich.

 

„Wir sind stets bestrebt unseren Kunden, den Betreibern und auch den Nutzern unserer Ladestationen den bestmöglichsten Service zu bieten. Daher bieten wir beispielsweise dem Betreiber verschiedene Preismodelle an und unsere Service-Hotline ist auch für die Nutzer rund um die Uhr erreichbar.“, so Sebastian Bachmann, Geschäftsführer von chargeIT mobility.

 

Die Tests wurden durch die P3 automotive im Zeitraum vom 26.7-15.8.2017 und 10.11-14.11.2017 mit zwei handelsüblichen BMW i3 Elektroautos durchgeführt. Im Fokus standen dabei die Ladestationen der großen Städte Deutschlands Berlin, Hamburg, Köln, Leipzig, München und Stuttgart, sowie deren Umland.

chargeIT mobility wins Germany's largest load management project

One of Europe's most substantial load management projects comes into existence in Dörnberg in Regensburg. ChargeIT mobility delivers the entire charging infrastructure system consisting of hardware and software. Currently, at least 220 charging points with expansion options are planned.

 

Regensburg/Kitzingen: At the beginning of this year, the Regensburger Energie- und Wasserversorgung AG & Co KG (REWAG) conceptualised and publicly advertised the charging and load management project as part of the underground parking development. Several charging providers had applied. The contract was awarded to chargeIT mobility GmbH from Kitzingen in Germany. ‘We look forward to realising this groundbreaking project,’ says Yusuf Akdeniz, head of sales for chargeIT mobility. The number of charging points and demanding technical requirements make this a benchmark-setting project for the still underdeveloped non-public car charging market. The private sector will obtain the most significant share of automotive electricity in the future, but so far not many solutions are available in housing estates. Thus, the Dörnberg district, developed by the Hubert Haupt Immobilien Holding and Bucher Properties, claims a pioneering role. REWAG together with chargeIT mobility offers a comprehensive package including project development, contract processing, as well as the consequent operation over a period of ten years. At the same time, REWAG utilises the chargeIT mobility solutions to combine private charging in underground parking with public charging in the city and surrounding areas through a single payment option. With over 110 charging points in Regensburg as well as the surrounding region, REWAG has already created a comprehensive public charging infrastructure. 

 

Unique project in Germany

 

The undertaking in Dörnberg is currently the largest charging infrastructure and load management project in Germany. Upon completion of the final expansion phase in 2020, over 200 charging points will be available to charge electric vehicles. Required is intelligent load management to operate as many charging points as possible while at the same time ensuring the optimal power supply of all connected components, for example, apartments.

There will be over 200 wallbox charging points with an output of up to 22 kW. The main reason for the complexity of the project is that the available grid power has to be controlled so that both the resident companies and private residences can be reliably powered, and the electric vehicles can be charged at the same time without causing overvoltage due to network congestion. For this, the load management power is distributed dynamically and optimally. A backup option is available in cases of failure, which ensures the charging of electric vehicles with their minimum specification and also guarantees authentication without RFID charging card. A VIP activation via RFID to utilise the full power of the charging points is also planned.

 

The project is scheduled for completion at the turn of the year

 

The first construction phase with 40 charging points will be completed as early as July 2018.

 

In the next step, the REWAG will install the necessary cables, distribution substations and carry out the grid-related works. Following this, chargeIT mobility will equip the electrical rooms with the so-called charging cluster centres and install the wallboxes. A total of 160 additional charging points shall be installed in two further construction phases at the turn of the year 2018/2019.

chargeIT mobility zeigt intelligentes Lastmanagement

Entlastung der Stromnetze durch intelligentes Laden. Bei gleichzeitigem und hohem Stromverbrauch von Gebäuden in Verbindung mit Elektroautos ist ein sinnvolles Lastmanagement essentiell. Der intelligente Ladecontroller von chargeIT mobility schafft eine Lösung durch individuelles Lastmanagement.

 

 

Kitzingen: E-Mobilität ist längst nicht mehr nur Zukunftsvision. E-Mobilität ist im Hier und Jetzt angekommen, das kann mittlerweile niemand mehr von der Hand weisen. Umso wichtiger ist es, dass vorhandene Stromnetze und Netzanschlüsse kosteneffizient für das Laden von E-Fahrzeugen genutzt werden können.

 

Das Lastmanagement wird überall da wichtig, wo die Anschlussleistung ans Stromnetz begrenzt ist

und durch das Zugreifen mehrerer Komponenten, wie Wohnungen, Rampenheizung in Parkhäusern oder auch durch das gleichzeitige Laden mehrere E-Fahrzeuge, die verfügbare Leistung limitiert ist. So kann es ohne intelligentem Lastmanagement schnell zur Überlastung des Netzes und der Sicherungen kommen.

 

Das Lastmanagement funktioniert mit dem von chargeIT mobility entwickelten Ladecontroller, welcher nicht nur in deren Ladesysteme sondern auch in die anderer Hersteller integriert werden können. So sind die Ladeinfrastruktur-Betreiber nicht an einen Systemhersteller gebunden und können die Lasten zentral, flexibel und intelligent steuern. Der Ladecontroller regelt die Leistung des Ladepunktes bei Ausfall der Kommunikation mit dem IT-Backend auf einen vorkonfigurierten Minimalwert herunter, damit das Stromnetz geschont wird.

 

Zur intelligenten Steuerung sehr vieler Ladepunkte kann der Mastercontroller in einer Zentrale eingebaut werden. Dieser dient als zweite Sicherheitsstufe, da er die maximale Anschlussleistung überwacht und auf die Ladepunkte verteilt.

 

Das Lastmanagement von chargeIT mobility macht es möglich, unter Berücksichtigung der am Stromnetz angeschlossenen Komponenten sowie der vorhandenen Anschlussleistung, E-Fahrzeuge netzschonend zu laden. Lastspitzen, bei denen ein erhöhter Stromverbrauch ausgewiesen wird, werden gezielt vermieden und so die E-Fahrzeuge kosteneffizient geladen. Dabei können auch regenerative Energien in das Netz eingespeist und zum Laden verwendet werden. So können Betreiber von Ladeinfrastrukturen beim Auf- und Ausbau Kosten einsparen. Das Lastmanagement ist flexibel. Es können beliebig viele Ladestationen, mit Blick auf die zur Verfügung stehende Anschlussleistung, nachgerüstet werden, Ladestationen und Autorisierungen (z.B. Ladekarten) priorisiert und über das IT-Backend die bereitgestellte Leistung eingestellt und gesteuert werden.

  

Die Ladesysteme werden mit dem Ladecontroller zur intelligenten Steuerung der Stromlasten versehen, welche mit dem optionalen Mastercontroller kommunizieren. Die Daten werden über eine gesicherte Verbindung an das Rechenzentrum gesandt. Hier kann der Betreiber mittels dem Lademanagementportal auf die Daten zugreifen, die für die Ladepunkte zur Verfügung gestellte Leistung einstellen und anpassen sowie individuelle Ladeprioritäten (z.B. eine bestimmte RFID-Karte) festlegen.

28.02.2018Wichtiger Hinweis zur VDE-Richtlinie zum Überspannungsschutz

02/28/18

Wichtiger Hinweis zur VDE-Richtlinie zum Überspannungsschutz

Für eine längere Lebensdauer Ihrer Ladesysteme

Ein Überspannungsschutz ist wichtig, um die Lebensdauer Ihrer Ladesysteme zu verlängern und diese verfügbar zu halten. Durch Überspannung, beispielsweise ausgelöst durch einen Blitzschlag, kann das Ladesystem einen Schaden davon tragen und funktionsunfähig werden. Dies vermeiden Sie durch einen entsprechenden Überspannungsschutz.

 

Um die Gebäudesicherheit zu gewährleisten, besteht nach VDE 0100-443 die Verpflichtung, einen Überspanungsschutz einzubauen. Jede Gebäudezuleitung und –ableitung muss mit einem Überspannungsschutz gesichert sein. Für den Schaden durch Überspannung übernimmt  sowohl chargeIT wie auch einige Fahrzeughersteller keine Haftung und keine Garantie. Daher empfehlen wir Ihren Planer/Elektriker zu kontaktieren, ob ein Überspannungsschutz im Gebäude ausreichend ist oder die Ladestation mit einem Kombiableiter (Blitzschutz und Überspannungsschutz) ausgestattet werden muss. Diese Option muss vor der Bestellung beauftragt werden.

Image above: The new chargeIT mobility GmbH logo also combines the spheres of charging hardware and software in the field of electromobility. The design is a stylized representation of the two connector and socket components of the European IEC type 2 charging plug.

Schweinfurt/Kitzingen: With over seven years' experience, BELECTRIC Drive has not only built up key expertise in electro-mobility but is also considered as one of the pioneers in establishing e-charging infrastructure in Germany. Once some imaginative economy, energy and information technology engineers clubbed together to come up with a neat solution for charging electric vehicles. In order to gather information on what it is like to deal with electric cars day to day, a fleet of over 50 vehicles was even brought into operation at the time in the Lower Franconia region. Since then a lot has happened and the company has strengthened its market position thanks to its innovative capabilities and tenacity. Now the start-up is stepping onto the next level and, from now on, will be named “chargeIT mobility”.

 

"With the new name 'chargeIT mobility', our ambitious goals and visions for the future are really taking shape," Sebastian Bachmann explains, CEO of the rebranded chargeIT mobility GmbH. "The issue of connectivity is particularly important in this age of electro-mobility and driverless cars. The new name demonstrates our clear focus on combining the worlds of mobility and charging in the best possible way using innovative IT solutions." The charging solutions are not being further developed from as far as some software companies do, but with non-stop testing at our own test sites and charging clusters at the Technology Center INNOPARK in Kitzingen. Work is ongoing to fine-tune and optimize the "user – vehicle – charging station – software – supply – network" cycle for practical everyday use.

The fact that this is not a market niche is clear from the strategic approach adopted by the renamed company, which plans to work with other key players to expand the charging infrastructure for electro-mobility in Germany. In the medium term, this means improvement of system stability and user-friendliness of charging stations in order to achieve a reliable charging performance for everyone involved in future technology. ChargeIT mobility's long-term objective is to establish the leading system for operating and managing e-charging stations across Europe.

"With its exemplary staying power and innovative capabilities, chargeIT mobility is already playing a key role in the electro-mobility market. The plug-and-play system design, dynamic load management capabilities, a mechanism for smoothing peak loads, and a flexible, user-friendly IT backend are just a few of our innovations," says Bernhard Beck, shareholder of the hoch.rein innovation group, describing his subsidiary's market position. 

There are three stakeholder groups in charging electric vehicles: the users/drivers, the operators and the power grid operators. chargeIT mobility equips all groups with a tool, to design a requirements oriented electro-mobility. Unlike other systems, chargeIT has many wide-ranging interfaces that illustrates a cost efficient and universal compatible development. This makes it much easier for operators to manage the whole charging system and for users to charge their vehicles. Complex charging stations and those that cannot be unlocked without sending a service team are now a thing of the past. Many existing charging stations has already been updated with the chargeIT intelligence.

Germany is pursuing ambitious goals in implementing electromobility solutions. The plan is for one million electric cars to be on German roads by 2020. It is chargeIT mobility's core objective to ensure that the basic infrastructure required to support them is ready on the charging side. However, other countries also play an important role in the global electric car movement. "Backed by our success on the German market, we will be expanding our business in Europe and the U.S. over the next years. Important projects already started," Bachmann says, describing his future corporate strategy.

From now on, a new Internet service for electric refueling will be providing customers with a detailed overview of every charging station. In cooperation with YellowMap, chargeIT mobility is providing this service as part of the presentation of the new BMW i3 to the public. From now on, the intelligent charging infrastructure of chargeIT mobility is offering everyone the possibility of checking the status of public charging stations in real time on the Internet.

“Every Internet-capable device will be able to access the status of any BELECTRIC charging point. For the first time, users can check in advance how much charging at the individual locations will cost and which charging points are operating and are free – so that they can plan their route as effectively as possible. In future, it will even be possible to reserve charging points,” explains Sebastian Bachmann, CEO of chargeIT mobility, describing the advantages of the new system. With this development, chargeIT mobility is taking a step closer toward guaranteeing freedom and flexibility for its users.

The BELECTRIC portal gives the latest status of the charging points, updated every minute. For its quality-assured content, the new Internet service calls on the emerging European reference database for e-mobility on the Internet at Smarttanken.de, a service initiated by YellowMap AG, based in Karlsruhe, Germany, and implemented by partners such as the German automobile association, ADAC. “At present we are working our way through all the roughly 2,000 electric refueling points in Germany and Austria, so that we can offer e-mobility users reliable information during their journey. At many charging stations, the drivers are even given the latest status information for the charging point. This makes it possible for them to access real-time information any time and anywhere on their tablet, on-board computer or smartphone and, if necessary, to head toward the nearest free charging station,” says the CEO of YellowMap, Frank Dimpfel, outlining the various possibilities. The modular structure of the web-based geo-applications of YellowMap allows fast implementation and real-time adjustments, so that they can document the growing infrastructure in the e-mobility market online in an innovative and user-friendly way.

Kitzingen: The chargeIT mobility charging infrastructure system has received the "Certified eRoaming System" partner label from Hubject GmbH. With its charging stations and charging station management system, chargeIT mobility fulfills the requirements for national and international eRoaming with intercharge. This makes the charging infrastructure from chargeIT mobility available to all customers who use an intercharge option with their driving electricity contract.

The aim of intercharge is to make it possible to charge e-vehicles using stations from different providers and across country borders. One clear advantage of a networked charging infrastructure is the independence and flexibility it offers to the users of a wide range of electric vehicles. The intercharge network is made up of strong partners and a Europe-wide charging infrastructure, which makes charging an electric vehicle as simple as regular refueling. By the end of 2013, cross-provider charging via intercharge should be possible at over 50% of the public charging stations in Germany. By connecting its infrastructure, chargeIT mobility now also offers use of the first charging points in France.

"At chargeIT mobility, we have relied on intelligent charging points since 2009 – this innovation is now also paying off in terms of user friendliness. The owners of electric vehicles should be able to charge their vehicle at any time without making any concessions in terms of convenience or independence. Networking via intercharge affords the ideal conditions for achieving such a state of affairs. It gives all new electric vehicles access to charging stations throughout Europe," said Sebastian Bachmann, CEO of chargeIT mobility, explaining the reasons behind the company's decision in favor of the cooperation.

The partner charging stations can be recognized throughout Europe by the intercharge symbol featured on every accessible charging point. The charging process can then be initiated by means of a charging card or smartphone app.

Kolitzheim: Tesla – the name stands for a typical American success story. It was 10 years ago that this company was originally founded in the “Golden State” of California. The goal of the company is to construct electric cars for the wider general public. The latest model from the Californian innovators, the Model S, takes its place in the luxury segment. In recent weeks it has been tested by the chargeIT mobility Team. As a driver of innovations in the area of the charging infrastructure, the themes of “range” and “rapid charging” were especially interesting to our team. The Tesla Model S immediately puts aside any previous misgivings. The figures speak for themselves: In addition to the stated range of up to 500 km, charging with our latest charging stations is possible in a sensational time. It is possible to charge up the new Tesla with a range of 50 kilometers in just 25 minutes. Nothing is stopping your driving enjoyment! The electric motor on the Model S goes from zero to 100 km/h in just five seconds. The lithium-ion battery, which has a maximum capacity of 85 kWh, delivers the sufficient amount of energy.

 

What is certain: both the TESLA Model S and the chargeIT mobility charging stations show that the future of the automobile is now a reality. The breakthrough will only succeed if, on the one hand, electric cars can offer the customer a similar level of freedom and individuality as their gasoline powered equivalents do. And on the other hand, it is also necessary for the charging infrastructure to be equally as straightforward and easy to use. At chargeIT mobility all of this is now a reality.

BELECTRIC Becomes Member of the VBEW and BDEW

Kolitzheim: BELECTRIC Solarkraftwerke GmbH has become a member of the Verband der Bayerischen Energie- und Wasserwirtschaft e.V. (VBEW; Bavarian Energy and Water Association) and the Bundesverband der Energie- und Wasserwirtschaft (BDEW; German Association of Energy and Water Industries). Through its membership, BELECTRIC seeks to encourage dialog on important aspects regarding the economical and sustainable realization of the energy turnaround between all the parties involved. "Lowering the cost of solar power generation through continuous innovation is the foundation of our company's long-term development strategy," said Bernhard Beck, CEO of BELECTRIC Solar Kraftwerke GmbH, explaining the company's philosophy. "With the development of grid-stabilizing solar power plants, we are showing that solar power is on a par in terms of system responsibility with the functionality of conventional large power plants and that renewable energy sources can therefore be intelligently integrated in the existing power grids."

 

"I am very pleased that BELECTRIC decided to become a member. The BDEW considers itself to be an integrative point of contact in the energy supply industry for politics, the general public, and companies, covering all sectors, value-added steps, and organizational forms. In future, the focus will be on the increased integration of companies from the renewable energy sources sector to get them involved in comprehensive solutions for important issues relating to the future of energy provision. In this regard, BELECTRIC has been a role model for a considerable length of time," explained Hildegard Müller, Chairwoman of the General Executive Management Board of BDEW. She also explained that, thanks to the expertise in the various areas covered by the BDEW, it was possible to utilize the learning effects between the sectors and value-added steps. "This allows us to offer companies in the renewable energy sources sector real added value in comparison to an association that deals with just one sector. The BDEW recently established an administrative department for renewable energy sources to allow for the increasing importance of regenerative companies," said Hildegard Müller.

 

As the state association of the BDEW, the VBEW represents the interests of over 360 member companies in Bavaria from the power, gas, district heating, water, and sewage management sectors. Its members include municipal companies and medium-sized enterprises as well as larger group companies. The overarching aim of the VBEW is to create the optimum framework conditions for economical, future-oriented, sustainable, and consumer-friendly power and water supply in Bavaria. The German Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDEW), Berlin, represents around 1,800 companies across sectors and value-added steps. Its members range from local and municipal companies through to regional and cross-regional companies. It represents around 90 percent of the sales volume for power, just over 60 percent of the sales volume for local and district heating, 90 percent of the sales volume for natural gas, 80 percent of drinking water production, and around one third of sewage disposal in Germany.
