The first IOTA charging station is going live

Straight from the Huawei conference with Dominik Schiener / IOTA:

“The first #IOTA charging station is going live today in the #Netherlands”

A charge station running on IOTA, for payment of the energy, all communication with the customer via IOTA and storing measurement values (like a smart meter) into the Tangle.

At ElaadNL we are researching and innovating with new technologies. We are currently researching the possibilities of Smart Charging in the power grid. We see that DLTs (Distributed Ledger Technologies) can have real impact on the information flow and security of the grid, because of the possibilities of decentral balancing. Especially in e-mobility we will see these decentralised developments come together before these aspects influence the other parts of the electricity system, providing a perfect test-base for the new functionalities and the technical enablers. We jump in and start building. That’s what we do at ElaadNL: turn theory into practice.

The same happened with the start of the IOTA Charge Station. We see the potential of DLTs, and we thought: “Could we integrate this into a charge station? Can we use this technology to create a better integrated system, as with smart grids, and get as much renewables into the system as possible?”
