Recharge simply everywhere!
A million electric vehicles on the roads by 2020, this is the goal the German federal government has set itself. One of the main obstacles hereby is the need for an efficient and affordable infrastructure for recharging the batteries. The new concept of the Ubitricity company brings the charging station to where electric energy is already available, e.g. into lamp posts on the street and to simple charging stations in car parks or at work.
Developing a reliable system for the billing of the electrical power that is both secure and admissible for verification was a predestined task for PTB. Within the scope of a project extending over several years and funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), this concept has been implemented by PTB together with the companies involved in the consortium. The fact that the power meter needed to bill the energy charged is on board the vehicle is to reduce the costs for power dispensers by more than a factor of 10. This would allow more charging facilities to be made available and, in many cases, to be operated profitably at all. After implementing the concept and developing the security architecture in cooperation with PTB, ubitricity has been carrying on the project further on its own since 2013 and has, for example, launched a pilot phase in Berlin, in the Lake Constance region and in various other places.
