multi-vendor load management
The most consistent smart charging scope is multi-vendor load management. Charging stations of different vendors can be taken into one load management group. This means smart charging can be executed over multiple different chargers. Multi-vendor load management does not necessarily rely on a specific backend system. It is based on communication interfaces the charging station itself offers. This gives the flexibility to add charging stations of different vendors to an existing installation. It also means that you can exchange a charging station if it needs to be replaced in the future.
