Charge smartly with the Smappee Smart Cloud

The Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) is the standard language used by charging stations and payment backends to exchange information about charging sessions. With most manufacturers, this exchange happens locally, but Smappee has taken an innovative approach by putting a smart cloud between its chargers and third-party payment backends. The cloud provides an encrypted connection …

How does Smappee enable auto-consumption?

A while ago we discussed the concept of auto-consumption and how it’s becoming more important in saving energy and enabling the decentralized smart grid. Many people with solar PV are looking into using energy management systems -such as Smappee- to get insights in and eventually also get control over their energy to optimize their self-consumption. …

How does Smappee forecast solar energy availability?

Many people are looking for ways to optimize their auto consumption. Meaning, they want to use all -or at least as much as possible- of their own produced solar power. That’s good for their wallet, the environment and it’s the way forward to facilitate the smart grid. Smappee users can use Smappee’s dynamic load-balancing technology …

A contemporary business centre without facilities for electric vehicles? Not acceptable, according to Jan Decoene, the driving force behind Cotton Park in Kortrijk. He commissioned Ceratec, his total partner for industrial electricity, to install 56 Smappee charging points. As a result, the 20 or so companies that rent office space there will soon be able …

V2G-V2H-Bidirectional charging

Cutting on your energy bills thanks to V2G and V2H.

The breakthrough of solar energy has been nothing short of impressive over the past decade. Moreover, technological evolution ensures that solar energy is used more and more optimally and, therefore, more cost-effectively. Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G for short) and Vehicle-to-Home (V2H) are two important examples of this evolution, with the charging station serving as a central regulator …
