Four Ways Cellular Connectivity Secures Your EV Chargers
The future is electric and smart Electric vehicles (EV) are on the rise, making up about five percent of new car registrations in the US and over 20 percent in the European market. With EU legislation set to stop new registrations of internal combustion engine cars by 2035, the future can only be electric. Another thing that is certain is that EVs supply equipment (EVSE) such as chargers will be smart – no matter if at home, in residential and business areas, or on highways. The biggest reason is to protect the power grid from too many EVs being charged at the same time. Smart chargers are internet-connected with a central system that can influence the charging power or current of specific EVs.
