What is the role of electric cars in the energy market of the future? One thing is certain. The answer goes far beyond “normal” use for driving to work or to the supermarket. Intelligent electric car charging strategies can reduce the burden of the power grids or provide temporary storage for power from solar systems. As a result, electric cars will be a crucial element of the energy transition. These innovations, however, will require appropriate energy products – a task for Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH (“Elli”). In our new case study on Elli, we explain in detail why the company has opted for powercloud as its backend and the IT challenges that had to be overcome.

The entire implementation process at Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH took only five months, from spring to late summer 2021 and this was done in the face of a demanding task:
- The new, highly-flexible solution had to replace an existing legacy software system.
- The new platform is comprehensively linked to the Elli IT structure by API and forms the technological basis for future solutions related to electric cars.
- Intelligent charging services can be handled entirely automatically and without errors: a complex task that involves, among other things, the handling of smart-meter data and the optimization of load profiles in the power grid.
- On top of this are basic conditions such as data persistence, data reconciliation, and the optimization of all the billing processes.
