The energy and automotive industries are converging which means there is a once in a lifetime opportunity to activate new revenue streams from EV charging and dominate the market.
As experts and leaders in the industry, we can help you expand your offerings at an accelerated pace. At Virta, we think about the big picture — providing EV charging services everywhere EV drivers are: at home, work, and on the go.
Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) is a technology that enables energy from a car battery to be pushed back to the power grid. V2G helps balance out electricity demand so that no extra energy needs to be consumed from the grid.
With our V2G solution, cars become part of the energy system and work in conjunction with stationary energy storages and renewable energy production.
With our Dynamic Load Management (DLM) feature you can define the power delivered to all of your chargers and optimise your existing infrastructure. DLM helps you future-proof your existing electrical system while reducing consumption peaks.
Adaptive Load Management (ALM) takes DLM a step further and optimises charging based on a property’s entire energy consumption. ALM monitors EV charging sessions along with major electrical system loads, like air conditioning and lighting and ensures power is distributed optimally and never over the capacity.
With both DLM and ALM, you’ll be able to safely add more chargers while using your existing electrical infrastructure and more importantly you’ll save on expensive electrical upgrades and peak demand charges.
Grid congestion happens when a power grid overload prevents electricity from reaching its destination. Bottlenecks can be caused by renewables, as well as increasing power consumption in an area. Smartly controlled EVs can offer a solution to grid congestion and prevent the need for costly investments in grid infrastructure upgrades.
The Virta Congestion Management feature takes grid capacity and energy production into account and optimizes EV charging based on this. You can set charging power to the desired level for different time frames in defined areas. This means EVs are charged at the optimal times and levels, while the number of charging stations can be increased safely, and without worry.
Our charging solutions provide all the necessary tools for utility companies to build a charging network that uses EVs to support energy production.Learn more about Virta Charging Business as a Service
The EV charging industry is constantly evolving and growing, and building your own solution requires a ton of expertise and resources. With Virta, you’ll take the fast-track to start an EV charging business and launch in a matter of days instead of months. You’ll immediately start to unlock new revenue streams and grab a hold of coveted market share before all your competitors.
Our mission is to do our part to solve climate change through electrification, energy efficiency, and decarbonisation. Electric vehicle batteries are the most cost-efficient form of energy storage since they don’t require additional investments on hardware. EV charging is the ideal way to harness energy for the benefit of our planet.
V2G is a relatively new innovation but we’ve been developing it for several years now. We’ve partnered up with companies like E.ON and Nissan to continue to evolve our V2G offering. Our first public V2G charging station was installed in Finland in 2017.
Virta is Europe’s fastest-growing EV charging solution provider. When you join our growing network, over 200k of our EV drivers become your potential customers too. And every new charging station that gets added to the Virta platform, means more value for your customers.
