Innovation through collaboration
innogy is the leading provider of comprehensive charging solutions. Having conducted numerous projects with various partners and suppliers, innogy has opted for XENON charge by gridX as the load management for their smart charging product.

A new market

innogy's offer for charging infrastructure was project driven and defined by the individual requirements of single customers, as the market was still very young and there were few standardized solutions. On a project basis, innogy worked together with different partners for the installation and operation of charging infrastructure and was able to compare providers based on its own experience.

From service business to scalable product

The first cooperation betwee innogy and gridX resulted in the installation and operation of twelve charging points for a conference hotel. For this project, innogy was looking for a dynamic load management that could control charging stations in real time under consideration of the total load at the grid connection point. In order to make its solutions accessible and scalable to a broader audience, innogy started the development of a standardized solution. When selecting partners, innogy could rely on experiences with different providers from numerous charging infrastructure projects. For load management the choice fell on XENON charge by gridX. Not only because gridX's solution is manufacturer independent, but also because the gridX team had proven to be fast and flexible in the cooperation.

Orientation towards new customer needs

Especially with a view to the future, innogy sees itself well-positioned with gridX. Already today gridX supports sector coupling, for example to use self-generated solar power for electric cars. This enables companies to operate their e-fleet more cost-efficiently and sustainably. This also convinces innogy customers who are looking for a long-term solution that can be flexibly adapted to changing needs. This flexibility allows innogy to differentiate itself from the competition. Additionally, innogy's grid operations also benefit from XENON charge, as the load management reduces the strain on the public grid.
