Loading infrastructure: “Have noted that we have progressed well”

Loading infrastructure:

One of the currently most discussed topics in terms of the loading infrastructure is the amendment of paragraph 14a of the Energy Management Act. Accordingly, at the second pronounced interview with the energy industry and municipal companies by Minister of Economic Minister Peter Altmaier and Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer among other things to avoid the controversial bill, which should help to avoid possible problems in the mains in connection with the loading of electro cars from the outset.

The network operators have already made it clear that they want to limit the loading of electric cars for smoothing load tips for up to two hours. With the intelligent Wallboxes funded by KfW with 900 Euro, this procedure would be technically possible. The network operators are hoped by this option to ensure reliability in the power supply in view of the steadily rising number of electric cars and charging points. Electric car drivers should not be enthusiastic, warns Marcus Fendt of The Mobility House: It compares the temporarily complete shutdown of a charging process with a smartphone user who can not telephone two hours a day a day. Martin HOfelfann, Head of Politics and Communication at the VW subsidiary Elli, says that an interruption of loads “E-car driver massively unsettle” could.

Basically, the Ministry of Economic Affairs wants to create a “necessary energy-economic legal framework” with the amendment of Paragraf 14a of the Energy Energy Law, “to accompany a strong market prevention of electromobility networks”. However, a “simple shutdown of charging processes” can not be the solution, says Volkswagen’s emobility board Thomas Ulbrich. On demand for industry service Electrive, the Ministry of Economic Affairs reaffirmed that the aim of the new regulation is “avoiding so-called flexible consumables such as e-cars or heat pumps by regulatory incentives. This should be done mainly by “incentives”, “for example, the e-car rather at night and not immediately after returning from the office to load”. An incentive z.B. would be that the store is more favorable at night than at peak load times. Only “in an emergency” if “at a certain time occurs too high consumption peaks” should network operators “also be able to intervene regulating”.

“Now it is starting!”

In the more than two-hour conversation of Minister of Economic Affairs Peter Altmaier and Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer with representatives of the energy industry and the municipal companies as well as the VDA Automotive Association, it was also about building the public loading infrastructure. “We have found that we have progressed well,” Altmaier said about this topic. It is “very important that there are activities at all corners and ends to build new charging points.”

“Almost 500.000 E vehicles at the end of October, 35.000 public charging points and more than 85.000 requested private charging points after just one week – show these numbers: Now it’s really going on!”Said Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer and pointed out that his Ministry will invest more than four billion euros in the private and (semi) public charging infrastructure in the coming years. “Brief: load for everyone, always and everywhere,” the goal, as a scrub: “And so that works and the charging columns are quickly built up, we need the energy industry as one of the very important players. We need a quick uncomplicated laying of power connections. We need reliable and uncomplicated charging processes with a payment option for all charging columns. And we need uniform standards, such as the Plug & Charge. We work together.”

  1. The most important thing comes (mostly) at the end.

    “Brief: load for everyone, always and everywhere,” the goal, as a scrub: “And so that works and the charging columns are quickly built up, we need the energy industry as one of the very important players. We need a quick uncomplicated laying of power connections. We need reliable and uncomplicated charging processes with a payment option for all charging columns. And we need uniform standards, such as the Plug & Charge. We work together.”

    Hopefully it will not be a pipe creper like scrubbing “Characterum” – the name scrub is rather for “political blinding work” – but the loading options should be “good craft”.

  2. The designed turn off my charging process after two hours bends the language. We pick up our Renault Zoe next week, which is greatly moved as a second car not more than 200 km per week. Against this background, our electrician builds a normal power outlet in front of our front door ‘Safe’, so we will only be able to download, presumably, 2.99 kW. With this we can easily come out with two night charges. My bill is no longer going on if the power spinner should implement your schnapsidee. Not, if the car comes home with 10 or 5% residual charge of the battery after a longer route.
