Elia joins forces with industry to facilitate smart charging for cars

The transition to a carbon-neutral society will lead to a drastic increase in the share of electric cars on the road.

Our electricity grid can cope with this kind of change if these cars are charged intelligently. This requires simple applications to help consumers charge their cars at times when large quantities of renewable and cheap energy are available. Elia is working closely with industry to facilitate these applications. 

  • Elia is launching a study with two e-mobility companies (Stroohm and Powered by Zeno) and engineering firm Arcade in a project to enable flexible charging of electric cars. 
  • Smart charging electric cars is a win-win for the energy system and consumers.
  • The study should lead to products that deliver flexible, simple and user-friendly charging for electric cars.
