Advanced charging station for supporting infrastructure connection

Summary

A Czech technical university focused on research and development in the field of electromobility developed several prototypes of charging stations for electric vehicles with support of advanced features and functions which allow individual charging systems virtualization, remote administration and billing energy and services of customers in closed system. The university is looking for company or investor interested in joint venture or manufacturing agreement or technical cooperation agreement.

Partner sought

The universtiy is looking for company or investor interested in joint venture or manufacturing agreement or technical cooperation agreement. The role of the partner will vary depending on the nature of the collaboration that is established: - Joint venture agreement - the partner and the EU company should be willing to work together closely. - Manufacturing and technical agreements can open mutual exchange of information all possible under confidentiality agreements.

Description

Czech university developed several prototypes of charging stations for electric vehicles and is looking for company or investor interested in joint venture or manufacturing agreement or technical cooperation agreement. Nowadays the development progress of electromobility is limited by current state of energy network, number and quality of public charging stations in Czech Republic. Current charging stations network is result of non-conceptual spontaneous development with problematic availability of charging point. The vast major number of stations are installed without possibility of new alternative functions since they are not adapted for such purposes. Developed charging stations have a great potential to expand more business opportunities and activities. In 2013 European Union proposed throughout to produce hundreds of thousands of new charging stations. In the Czech Republic there was set a quota of 13,000 public charging stations to be developed by 2020. Developed prototype of charging station allows connection of electric car with energy network and comfort secure control of charging administrator or customer. Advanced features allow virtualization of charging stations (consumption/production facilities) in closed system, for example remote control and monitoring of charging process, operational control of energy flow, billing of services or energy. Charging station solution consists from commercial parts and custom designed hardware resources with integrated control systém. On this basic there is connection in LAN or WAN network for actual data measured during charging process for connected electric cars. There is possible to apply remote control of power outputs (on/off), components or whole cluster of charging stations. It is not possible to continue only with research and experimental work without the transition to commercial activities or starting a business and professionalisation especially when subscribers are interested in this product now.

Advantages and innovations

Developed charging station brings technical innovative solution which allows: - remote supervision of electric car charging process, controlled switching from the level of cluster through a particular charging station to individual charging sockets according to user, infrastructure administrator or available power demands requirements, - remote management and monitoring of the operation of the charging station(s)/cluster, - power supply scaling due lower power than the power output of whole charging station using electric energy storage elements for one of offered solutions, - energy and services billing to clients or customers, - user accounts support with centralized supervisor system, - simple connection to energy network, - using charging station as distributed energy source in smart networks, - structural modularity of charging station or its components on demands.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
