Siemens Launches Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Highlighting an easy-to-use, wall-mountable 7.2-kW single-output station that can be used for both residential and commercial applications Siemens will offer three models.
In conjunction with Coulomb Technologies' Chargepoint Network, the charging station's features include 24/7 driver assistance, EV trip mapping and driver billing as well as offering charge station owners with remote on demand software applications.
According to the Siemens, the charging stations include Smart Grid integration. In addition, the company will provide integration into the utility grid, offering "advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), load shifting through demand response (DR) programs, and the addition of generation capacity to handle widespread EV adoption – giving consumers options while avoiding service disruptions."
"Most utility departments will be impacted in some way, and Siemens is particularly well positioned to help users, cities and utilities integrate electric vehicles due to our extensive portfolio of products, services and solutions along the entire energy conversion chain." said Paul A. Camuti, president of Smart Grid Applications, Siemens Energy, Inc.
