EVIE™ is a new and disruptive patented technology, deploying a sophisticated solution for Electric Vehicle (EV) charging which integrates a SMETS2 meter operating in conjunction with an EV charge point. EVIE™ is designed to optimise energy efficiency for homeowners using 100% renewable energy and alleviating pressure from the grid with a fully automated solution.
EVIE™ satisfies DNOs whilst addressing the problem of not being able to charge an EV in an area of grid constraint within older houses and where AC charging restrictions may exist. EVIE™ remains entirely compliant with DNO restrictions. EVIE™ enables DNOs to expand their EV charging capability without making significant changes in upgrading the grid infrastructure solves the ability to control EV charging in the home through smart metres at critical grid periods alongside meeting net-zero Targets in the UK. The technology used can also be integrated with HEMS (House Energy Management systems) BEMS (Building Energy Management systems), SMETS2 and DC charging.
Smart meters make charging EVs more cost-effective and enable consumers to have greater control over their energy usage. Consumers can charge their vehicles at the lowest possible tariff whilst balancing the demands on the grid and minimising their carbon footprint in the process, delivering long-term cost-saving benefits for homeowners alongside enhancing the EV experience for owners.
