The electrification of public transport requires a wide range of capabilities and know-how. This is why Enel X offers solutions for the entire project cycle: from electric services management, to charging station construction and fleet operation and maintenance.
The charging of eBuses takes place at charging stations; the time it takes to charge an electric bus varies. Thanks to in-depth preliminary topography analysis, local traffic and weather, Enel X designs the most efficient infrastructure to calibrate the smart charging software. This makes it the ideal partner to design, install, maintain and manage electro-terminals for eBus charging.
Cities around the world are looking to Enel X for its innovative solutions in evolving transport into more economically favorable, sustainable and cleaner systems and to reduce energy consumption by creating and implementing a more efficient and desirable infrastructure. With electric buses the need to design and install EV fleet charging has become a necessity. But what are EV fleet charging stations exactly? They are electric vehicle fleet charging infrastructures, where buses running on electric power can be recharged.
How to optimize EV fleet charging? Enel X smart charging solutions
Enel X enables easier and smarter EV fleet charging infrastructure, thanks to a complex system of EV fleet charge management and optimization. How are electric buses charged?
The fleet of eBuses is charged respecting the available power at the charging site. Furthermore, if one bus requires less power, the remaining power is allocated to other eBuses.
Enel X charge prioritization offers the possibility to identify and set different priorities and criteria to charge the eBuses. This priority can be defined based on the order of arrival, for example: the first eBus to arrive is the one that charges faster. Another solution is to define the charging priority based on the charging station, station-based priority. The priority can also be based on the vehicles, for example: eBuses 18m charge before those of 8m, vehicle-based priority. Another option is to base the charge on the schedule needs, departure-time priority. Thanks to smart charging platforms, the planning blocks are analyzed and charging schedules are realized, scheduling suite integration.
