As the global electric vehicle (EV) revolution continues and the adoption of EVs continues to accelerate, the electrical grid is starting to experience the impact of these new distributed loads on grid infrastructure. The electrical grid was not designed to support mobile loads, which can be unpredictable. How can Smart Charging and vehicle-to-grid integration (VGI) technology mitigate this impact and instead become a key asset for grid stability?

The Enlit Europe 2023 conference in Paris, France focused on the development of a “decarbonized and digitalized energy system for the energy transition.”  Integral to this effort is the growing importance of the behind-the-meter ecosystem, which has emerged as the foundation for effectively managing the growing demand for electricity. In fact, behind-the-meter energy resource detection where power consumption and power injection are estimated, can serve as a key instrument in aiding grid stabilization and optimizing the utilization of renewable power sources.

Sagemcom and IoTecha presented their joint vision to accelerate VGI and Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) technology adoption by facilitating grid integration through the bidirectional Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and alternative over-the-top pathways. Sagemcom and IoTecha lay the groundwork for a seamless and interconnected system that benefits both EV owners and the broader behind-the-meter energy detection and approximation.

“By identifying and reporting the energy resources behind-the-meter, consumers can have more control over when to export renewable energy instead of consuming it and utility companies can structure different services to give consumers more personalized energy reduction recommendations, "said Eric Rieul CEO of Sagemcom Energy and Telecom".

"With the rapid adoption of electric vehicles and their growing impact on the electric grid, it has become clear that the behind-the-meter ecosystem will play a vital role in the sustainable future of e-mobility and power distribution," said Oleg Logvinov, CEO of IoTecha. "Our collaboration with Sagemcom leverages our respective strengths in standard-based and secure communication and showcases how the EV charging infrastructure and the power infrastructure can seamlessly integrate to benefit end users and the grid.”

Integrating the Smart Metering and Smart Charging ecosystems enables the development of more efficient, cost-effective, and intelligent local energy management tools. It also supports the implementation of innovative use cases with direct benefits to end-users and the creation of large pools of resources that can be aggregated to support the grid.

Together and by combining their unique expertise, Sagemcom and IoTecha are facilitating the broader goals of grid stabilization and maximization of renewable energy usage. Together, Sagemcom and IoTecha are paving the way for a fully electrified transportation and a world successful at mitigating the global climate challenge.

Der Kommunikationsadapter SMARTY ix-BAB-EDL-OKK von der Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus GmbH wurde bereits in Kombination mit zahlreichen Marktpartnern erfolgreich für den deutschen Markt zugelassen.

Durch den SMGW-Adapter werden EDL-Zähler zur Funktion einer modernen Messeinrichtung (mME) befähigt und können so im Zusammenspiel mit einem Smart Meter Gateway auf einfache Weise zu einem BSI-konformen intelligenten Messsystem erweitert werden. Herkömmliche Steckzähler mit EDL-Standard erfüllen nicht die Anforderungen an gesetzeskonformes Smart Metering. Der SMARTY ix-BAB-EDL-OKK besitzt einen eigenen Kontroller und bringt dadurch Intelligenz und Kryptografie in den EDL-Zähler. Erst durch den Einsatz des Adapters lassen sich SMGWs an Bestandzähler anschließen und somit Messdaten vom EDL-Zähler sicher und datenschutzkonform über das SMGW kommunizieren.
 
Der Adapter von Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus kann in drei Varianten mit den Bestandszählern gekoppelt werden. Standardmäßig liest der Adapter die Infrarotschnittstelle des elektronischen Haushaltszählers (eHZ) aus. Alternativ lässt sich der Adapter als integriertes Modul fest in den eHZ einbauen oder mit Hilfe einer Gehäuseanpassung vollständig integrieren, wodurch EDL-Bestandszähler vollwertige FNN-Basiszähler werden.

Der zertifizierte optische Auslesekopf unterstützt den EDL-21-Standard nach FNN. Auch weitere Protokolle wie z.B. IEC1107 können auf Wunsch implementiert werden. Neben dem Einsatz an Stromzählern eignet sich der Adapter auch für Gas- und Wasserzähler. In Zusammenarbeit mit seinen Marktpartnern leistet Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus mit dieser harmonisierten Lösung einen weiteren Beitrag zur in Deutschland gewünschten Interoperabilität smarter Zählermesstechnik.
