From Dumb to Smart – why you should use Virta’s smart EV charging service

 Virta’s charging system is already compatible with hundreds of charging devices - and more to come. Our smart services can be connected to almost any device following standard protocols.

I already have a charging device – what do I need your service for?

By choosing our charging service, you get a clever and convenient solution, save time, and can be sure that your vehicle is charged safely. Not convinced yet? Here are a few more reasons to choose our integrated charging service:

Smart Admin System: With the help of our smart admin system, you can conveniently manage and monitor all of your charging devices. For example, you can view and download statistics, report issues, and control charging remotely. Our admin system is easy-to-use and can be accessed by any web browser.

Automatic Billing: When a charging station is used by several EV drivers, automatic paying and billing makes everything so much faster and easier. The charging point owner can, with the help of our smart admin system, set a price for charging, and the charging point user is then automatically billed - either through a Virta-account, or with a one-time credit card payment. These payments are delivered straight to the charging point owner’s bank account, once a month.

Charging Devices: You can use our charging service together with the OCPP-protocol. At the moment, you can use our services with the devices of 15 different manufacturers, and the number is constantly growing.

Existing integrations: ABB, Ensto, DTB, EVTEC, ICU, Circontrol, GARO, Delta, Schneider Electric, KEBA, Remotec, Efecec. Phoenix Contact. EVBOX and Mennekes.

Dynamic Load Management: With the help of our dynamic load management, you can protect your local grid from peak loads, and make sure that the maximum load for a group of charging points in e.g. a residential building is not exceeded.

Ideally, the load of each charging device drops a bit with every new user connected. This makes sure that each user gets the same charging power, and if there is only one user, the car is charged with full power. Virta’s dynamic load management (DLM) takes care of this, so you can just sit back and relax.

Our services include a number of other functions as well – e.g. a one-time payment function for public charging points and optimized charging events based on electricity prices.

Our smart service is flexible – when the number of EV’s on our roads increases, the charging solutions will need to keep up. We are ready, how about you?
