Electric mobility in tomorrow’s world is a question of give and take. Smart charging means interlinking vehicles, charging infrastructure and power grids.
Thinking in more than one direction.
The goal is to make electric mobility even easier and cheaper with even lower emissions by adopting a holistic approach. Today, ChargeForward brings together two key tools in the fight against climate change: vehicle electrification and renewable energy.
CHARGEFORWARD MEANS CHARGED WITH ELECTRICITY FROM RENEWABLE RESOURCES AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
BMW Group is leading the charge in accessing and storing renewables on the grid through its ChargeForward program. We take over the charging management for our customers.
The aim is to use as much solar energy as possible while contributing to the overall stability of the electricity grid.
CREATING A WIN-WIN SITUATION
With a ChargeForward application that regulates the process while charging, we enable the driver of an electric vehicle to charge during non-peak hours, when emissions are the lowest.
FOUR MONTHS OF CLEAN CHARGING WITH SMART CHARGING
The use of optimised charging can enable electric vehicles to accept an additional 1,200 kilowatt-hours of renewable energy per year, which is the equivalent of four months of clean energy charging.
