PILOT SITE LUČE IS RICHER FOR THE COMMUNITY EV CHARGER
What: EV charger installed in pilot site Luče
Where: Luče, Slovenia
When: October 2020
With the help of COMPILE partners PETROL and ETREL, the public EV charger was installed in the pilot site Luče. The EV charger model is ETREL INCH Pro with 22 kW maximum charging power and with one plug but due to the network constraints, the maximum charging power is limited to 17 kW.
Pilot site Luče became operational in spring after the community and household batteries were installed and integrated into the grid. Now the first self-sufficient energy community in Slovenia is progressing also in the field of e-mobility and smart charging which will allow PETROL and DSO to optimise the grid operation and further reduce the PV curtailment.
