At Jedlix, we continue to strive for improvement. Everything we do revolves around innovation. We think big and come up with revolutionary ideas which we put to the test in practice. This lets us come up with concrete solutions for the future.
Our current energy system is not yet properly calibrated to be able to cope with the increasing demand for and supply of energy. To prevent expensive grid reinforcements, Interflex is performing an international pilot to try out new alternative possibilities to limit supply and demand peaks. Jedlix is supplying the software required to charge cars in a smart and flexible manner. This helps us to encourage people to redistribute their energy consumption, thus limiting the peak demand for electricity and utilising the supply of sustainable energy.
The vast potential benefits of Smart Charging were already quite clear to Jedlix and ElaadNL. But the fact that electric cars can now be used as a form of power management and reserves is a first. On Friday, 7 July 2017 five owners of Tesla cars met up at the ElaadNL testing centre. They proved that a smooth integration of electric cars as part of the power grid is closer than had been imagined.
The Smart Solar Charging project is an impressive undertaking by Renault, WedriveSolar and Jedlix. Instead of focussing on electric cars alone, the companies review the entire electric car ecosystem. The goal: to realise a ‘smart city’. Key elements are electric car sharing and energy infrastructure. Cleaner electric mobility can be made available to larger audiences by splitting the costs between users.
Together with our project partners, we are continually in the process of making electric driving cheaper, easier, and more sustainable for consumers and businesses alike. Our collaboration does not stop once a contract has been signed. With our partners, we are implementing projects to come to new solutions, but also to continually keep improving the user-experience we provide. For the realisation of some of these projects, Jedlix have received ‘Topsector energy subsidy’ from the Ministry of Economic Affair of the Netherlands and is supported by the Dutch Enterprise Agency (RVO).
