Wago, a supplier of connectivity and automation technology, and Intilion, a storage system provider and subsidiary of German battery manufacturer Hoppecke, want to cooperate on projects for electric car charging stations and offer a solution for local grids which cannot cope with the power demand caused by modern fast charging stations. To this end, the two companies have developed the »Grid-Booster,« a load management system that incorporates battery storage.
The principle, which is also pursued in this or a similar way by other suppliers, is intended to enable parallel charging of several cars at high power even in local grids that are not actually designed for such loadings by using the battery storage as a »booster« when required. Wago will contribute the load management and Intilion its scalable storage systems (»Scalestac«, »Scalebloc« and »Scalecube«) with capacities from 25 kilowatts to several megawatts.
