Synergies from charging with solar power

Sunny times ahead for electric cars

Electric cars are not only emission-free, but also cheaper to drive than conventional cars. It is even more environmentally-friendly and cost-saving if the electricity you need to charge your car comes from your own solar power system. At two events hosted by the PV pioneer Fronius, our experts showed how easy, safe and smart it is to use a KEBA wall box to charge your electric car with solar power.
 

Clean cars need clean electricity

Electric cars emit no exhaust fumes and are therefore emission-free on the road. This significantly reduces your ecological footprint. And when the electricity you need comes from sustainable, renewable energy sources, then the environmental impact is low. In this way electromobility can develop its full potential for a green future.

Your home as a clean energy charging station

For private individuals, combining your home charging station with your photovoltaic system brings twice the advantage. You not only make a significant contribution to the energy transition, but also achieve financial benefits. Thanks to low remuneration prices, it makes much more sense to feed excess solar power to your electric car rather than the public grid.

KEBA wall boxes: Smart and safe

The KEBA KeContact P30 wall box transforms your home into a charging station for electric cars. It provides a smart and safe way to power your electric car with solar energy. PV pioneer Fronius invited our team to two events so that interested visitors could experience our wall boxes first hand:

  • Fronius Next Level Solar: May 14, 2019, Munich, Germany
  • Fronius Open House: May 15, 2019, Kingston, UK

Do you want to transform your home into a smart home and charge your (future) electric car with solar power? Then the KEBA KeContact P30 is the perfect wall box for you! Our charging stations are available from select retailers and in various online shops.

Electromobility can achieve its greatest potential when the charging infrastructure offers opportunities for connecting to clean energy sources.

"Urcharge" project examines crucial questions about the viability of e-mobility for everyday use

One of the largest and longest electric mobility field tests in Austrian history starts tomorrow. For the project "Urcharge" (Urban Charging) 51 households in a Linz residential complex will be exchanging their fuel car for an electric car including their own KEBA charging station, which is integrated into the Linz AG charging solution "WallBOX CitySolution". It will provide answers to fundamental questions about what infrastructure and charging behaviour is needed in order to make the day-to-day use of e-mobility a decisive environmental protection factor in urban areas, even for densely populated areas. The start of the project had been postponed due to Corona - now the project gets underway.

Is it worth having a wallbox for my plug-in hybrid (PHEV)?

With modern plug-in hybrids, distances of up to 90 kilometers can be achieved purely electrically. That is usually enough for the commute to work or other everyday journeys. All the same, the batteries of these PHEVs are significantly smaller than those of purely battery-electric vehicles (BEVs). So, is a household socket sufficient for daily charging or does it still make sense to have a wallbox?
