Innovation and USPs of KOSTAL Charging Solutions

Bidirectional charging

With bidirectional charging, you can charge the vehicle with electricity, but can also return any excess energy from the vehicle. This involves the direct current output by the vehicle being converted back into alternating current (AC). Thus, bidirectional charging enables both Vehicle-2-Grid (V2G), in which electricity is fed into the public grid, and Vehicle-2-Home (V2H), meaning that remaining energy is fed straight into the home electricity network.

Unidirectional charging

Unidirectional charging allows energy to flow from the power grid or home network into the vehicle. Examples of applications include the environmentally-aware family who use their self-generated electricity for home consumption as well as for charging their electric vehicle or charging points for public use provided by companies or local authorities, for example.

Driving forward the energy transition

KOSTAL Charging Solutions help you to think in a customer-oriented way and create new shopping experiences

Think customer-oriented

Impress your customers by creating a very special shopping and e-mobility experience. How? Offer your customers a parking space with a wallbox. While they are shopping, the customer’s vehicle charges surplus electricity into your grid, which you credit to the customer when they pay. Your customers save money and, like your company, are part of a future-oriented energy transition.

KOSTAL Charging Solutions create benefits for your company

Benefits for your company

Equip your parking spaces with charging options for your employees' electric vehicles, so you can offer them a cost-effective and practical benefit. In addition, give your company added value which is particularly sustainable and employee-friendly. Or offer your employees the option of feeding the electricity they produce at home into your grid in order to receive further benefits.

KOSTAL Charging Solutions enables you to reduce your own energy costs

Reduce own costs

Tap into all the possibilities that your photovoltaic system has to offer. In addition to feeding surplus energy into the power grid, you can also charge vehicles in your fleet or feed surplus energy from vehicles that are not in use back into your power grid. This means that the energy generated is constantly in flux and permits the most efficient use possible. For you and the environment!

BDL research project with KOSTAL and BMW

“BDL” research project with KOSTAL and BMW

KOSTAL is a partner in the 'Bidirectional charging management - BDL’ research project. At the heart of this project lies the joint development of technological solutions for making electric mobility more convenient and more cost-effective for users and reducing emissions. KOSTAL is involved in developing, producing and providing wallboxes. Since 2021, KOSTAL has been testing the innovative bidirectional charging technology under real conditions using 50 BMW i3 electric vehicles.

The BDL research project will run for three years and is being funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy under the responsibility of the German Aerospace Centre. The project aims to promote using renewable energy as extensively as possible and to improve security of energy supplies, which it is hoped will be achieved by fully linking up vehicles, charging infrastructure and power grids.
