The new EV charger series supports intelligent valley price charging, nudging charging to off-peak hours. It is also capable of dynamic load balancing, constantly monitoring changes in energy use and adjusting the charging output to the EVs in response to the changes in electricity load.

It also allows for remote firmware upgrade and work mode settings via the Renac Smart Charger App, including the general mode, PV mode and Eco mode.

“This product is intended for residential use, and its compatibility with residential PV storage systems is a major advantage,” a Renac Power spokesperson told pv magazine. ”Our plan is to launch it on the European market in October. The product will be first available in Germany, Italy, France, Spain, and followed by other countries.”
