E-mobility is an important milestone of the energy transition.
When will customers be able to use the Connect charging system to integrate the Audi e-tron into the SMA HEMS?
Gerhard Paris (Audi): Our project is entering the home straight and we’ve made great strides along the way. Our customers benefit from the common EEBUS communication standard, which enables all devices networked within the system to communicate with each other. This has been successfully tested at two Plugfest events (SMA Energy Management on the Internet of Things and The Heating Communicates With the Car).
The project is now in the final test phase and the first round of field tests are set to commence in the next few weeks. The market launch is scheduled for mid-2019 — just a few months after the Audi e-tron is launched on the market.
