Goldbeck builds future-oriented commercial properties in Europe, taking care of the entire process from design to construction and operational services. In Germany, Goldbeck is the market leader for parking garages, which are often equipped with PV systems. At a site in Hirschberg, the company realized that the load of additional EV charging stations would exceed the grid connection point's capacity of 345 kW.
To avoid expensive grid extensions and compromising the charging capacity of the electric vehicles, Goldbeck opted for gridX's XENON platform. This gave them control over their energy flows and allowed them to adjust maximum peak loads according to changing requirements. High-resolution energy monitoring data allowed Goldbeck to analyze load curves and adjust charging behavior to make the loads more constant. This enabled them to lower grid tariffs without affecting user comfort.
Because many of Goldbeck's parking garages also feature PV systems, the ability to couple control and integrate energy assets is an important factor. This allows them to optimize smart charging during peak hours of sunlight and, in doing so, ensure that their garages offer the highest level of sustainability and user convenience.
MAINGAU Energie started out more than 100 years ago as a classic gas provider in the region around Obertshausen. Today, half a million customers in Germany and Austria already trust MAINGAU's offerings in the areas of energy, e-mobility, communications and beyond. To strengthen its e-mobility offering, MAINGAU Energie chose to develop a dynamic load management solution on XENON at their company site.
By using XENON as a local energy management system, Fastned is able to avoid grid overloads, reduce both upfront and ongoing costs and serve even more electric drivers.
