Motorists give Streamers of Gas

35'000 electric cars on Switzerland's roads on the move, and it is more steady. Each of the twenty model, which was redeemed in the first quarter, driving power from the wall outlet. In 2018, it was only every Thirtieth. "It's part of a strong growth", says Christoph Wolnik by the importer Association Auto-Schweiz. "A majority of the Handlebar can imagine today, to buy a car with alternative drive."

However, time is of the essence: by 2020, an average CO2 limit of 95 grams per Kilometer for new cars. This has confirmed the voting public with the help of the energy strategy 2050. Today the average is still 130 grams. The industry is still confident. "The vehicle manufacturer being bid currently with new models," says Wolnik. In addition, the prices would fall and the rich grow wide. "The E-market opens for a new clientele."

Normal household power sockets is not enough

however, This means that It needs more charging stations, especially in the private sector. Today, the house owners Association (HEV) in Switzerland, more and more tenants are interested in electric charging stations. "The requests of homeowners and landlords who ask for solutions for garages and Parking fields, piling up," says Thomas Ammann, head of energy and construction technology to the HEV Switzerland.

An electric car can be to a normal household outlet charging, or also on so-called "blue" or "red" industry outlets, such as you are camping grounds common. However, it can be overloaded up to a fire. In addition, neither the electricity nor the charging currents are controllable. "It takes intelligent sockets, the so-called wall boxes," says Claudio Pfister, head of E'mobile, the professional society for efficient mobility of Electrosuisse.

wall-boxes regulate the when, who, may like to suck a lot of electricity. Depending on programming the boxes to the studs only to low-tariff or in sunshine, at times a lot or a little energy. The HEV Switzerland is recommended to install, especially in underground Parking garages of multi-family houses or commercial buildings such. "Instead of individual lines to each charging station with meter, a single System makes more sense," says Ammann from the HEV Switzerland.

The energy has to be used in a much more effective

"By the increasing number of electric cars, but also to the energy strategy 2050 is implemented, it is important to use the power effectively," says Jürg Bichsel, head of the Institute of energy in building University of applied Sciences North-Western Switzerland. Ovens, washing machines, heat pumps and cars would not need to obtain all the power at the same time. Therefore, boxes are also intelligent power grids, so called Smart Grids are next to the Wall, "a Must".

One of the Start-ups, which specializes in energy management for buildings, the company Invisia in Winterthur. Owner George servant says: "We were always convinced that the efficient use of electricity is the future. Since about half a year shows that we hit the nerve of time." In the past six months, Invisia was able to increase sales by 40 percent. "Rash of this is the growing number of electric cars. Force them to Act."

the servant is convinced that the existing power is sufficient to meet the rising demand. "We need to use energy only clever and create incentives to do so." The technology is no longer a Problem today.

The number of providers of such energy management, but also the demand for solutions increases. With the support of the Swiss Federal office of energy have closed last Friday, nearly two dozen companies, electricity companies and universities to the Association SmartGrid ready. To communicate their target: A quality label, which characterizes electrical devices, which are capable to each other. "Standardization is imperative," says Foundation President Christoph Brönnimann. "Only in this way, the combination of renewable energy production with the rapidly changing peaks is possible."
