Kitu Systems Announces Smart EV Charging For The Home

Feb 5, 2019

Kitu Systems' Convoy™ electric vehicle charging management platform will provide smart charging services to residential customers on path toward scalable vehicle-to-grid integration News provided by Share this article NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- DistribuTECH -- Electric Vehicle (EV) owners can now experience the benefits of smart charging at their homes. Smart charging features such as access control, payment services and/or load management are increasingly common at work, retail destinations and at public charging facilities. Now, Kitu Systems will bring smart charging benefits home, providing advanced monitoring and management capabilities. More and more utilities realize the potential of using electric vehicle loads to provide grid support and have been eyeing the home, where ample opportunity for charging and discharging occurs. Customers who give utilities the flexibility to adjust and control the charging profile of their vehicle may find attractive incentives and potentially pay less for energy. Kitu Systems' Convoy EV allows EV owners, site hosts, and utilities to deploy cost-effective, grid-optimized, and user-friendly charging solutions. With support for multi-standard interfaces to chargers (OCPP and IEEE 2030.5) and to utility systems (OpenADR and IEEE 2030.5), Convoy offers a broad range of hardware and interconnection options to EV owners and utilities. "Customers want the flexibility to choose the hardware and services that meet their ongoing needs," said Vincent Weyl, Kitu Systems' VP of Marketing. "Convoy focuses the conversation on services and value, and away from technology and interoperability issues. As we progress toward seamless vehicle-to-grid integration, Convoy enables synergies between solar, storage, and electric vehicles, resulting in new benefits to owners and grid operators." Kitu Systems' Convoy platform completed a vehicle-to-grid technology pilot last fall in San Diego, CA and is now being tested in a real-world environment which includes solar, storage, and vehicles capable of bi-directional power flow and grid support services.
