SMART CHARGING     & OPTIMIZATION

of your EV & PHEV Fleet

FLEET OF PLUG-IN HYBRIDS & ELECTRIC CARS

5 key points

Charging at work will be a lot the cheaper than charging at public stations. Do you have a car Parking ? It is then useful to privilege installing your own charging infrastructure.

Your employees make the income of your business. Do not waste their time moving cars around few charging points. Try to install as many Charging points as you can. If the number of cars is superior to the number of charging points you can install, NEOFLEET will manage the rotation of cars around the charging points, and communicate with the employees to offer smoothness and efficiency in this rotation among the chargers.

 Since most of your employees will work at the office for a period of 4 to 8 hours, your system should ideally charge your PHEV slowly (at low power setup), to keep the power for your EV cars, especially the ones requiring “fast charging”.
This can easily be managed with chargers offering variable power, and its management by an adequate solution (NEOFLEET).

 Charging daily will be more efficient if:

A. You opt for charging points equipped with a station cable. Indeed, nobody like to pump gas once a week at the gas station. From now on, drivers will have to log in every morning and log out every night. Therefore, do not ask them to take a cable out of the trunk every morning, neither put it back in the trunk every evening by getting dirty hands, and a risk of dirty clothes.

B. They will not enjoy spending time outside under the rain, to communicate their charging request on the screen of the charging point.
Thanks to NEOFLEET, it is once inside the office that they will communicate their charging needs and departure hours, on one of the tablets at the reception or on their smartphone. NEOFLEET will then take care of the rest.

 NEOFLEET does not only organize the recharge. It will also optimize its costs and it will take into account the solar power available in the near future. Furthermore, it organizes the refund of expenses incurred by staff when chaging at home, or during their trips, and it gives information on the TCE (Total Cost of Energy) of each car/driver/department …

A TRUE STORY

NETiKA – 40 plug-in hybrid & Electric vehicles

“After 25 years of Diesel driving, it was a strategic choice for our company. Certainly, there is an initial investment to become its own electric fuel supplier, but technology and incentives demonstrate a clear interest in doing so; especially financially, while ceasing to pollute our cities but also the lungs of our children. This is not to mention that the photovoltaic coverage of our industrial building has significantly reduced the cost of the miles traveled, becoming our own “electricity producer”.
Last but not least, what an improvement in the quality of life when riding without noise, becoming more relaxed and Zen, with zero direct CO2 emission!”

Paul de Gheldere – CEO NETiKA Group

THE NEOFLEET SOLUTION

  • Takes into account the request of each driver, from an iPad or a smartphone
  • Signals when a driver has not transmitted his information
  • Takes into account the energy to keep available for the company activity
  • Measures the electricity produced by your solar installation, and predicts the power expected at a time T (in 1/4h, 1/2h, 1h, 2h …) to encourage maximum recharge in the sunniest hours
  • Commands the chargers via a PLC and measures the electricity used by each charging point.
  • Gives all information to the Fleet manager and the “receptionist”, allowing to simulate the impact of a possible quick recharge of a visitor, and trigger it if he needs it
  • Refreshes its charging schedule continuously to take all new elements into consideration
  • Communicates to employees the current status of their charge and the time of their full charging completion
  • Automatically collects fuel consumption information (petrol, diesel) from oil companies
  • Automatically collects charging expenses information from an employee, done at home (via the POWERDALE communicating charger), and manages reimbursements for expenses incurred privately or while traveling
  • Calculates the TCE (Total Cost of Energy) of each car/ driver (and taking into account the fossil fuel costs of hybrid cars)
  • Signals Driving behaviours that are not ECO responsible
  • Consolidate and archive all of your information on time, for further calculations (by department)

FROM ONE OF OUR INTEGRATORS

THIS IS HOW ECO FLEETS ARE RUNNING EFFICIENTLY

CHARGING REQUEST

Electric cars drivers don’t like to waste time under the rain. So, after connecting their car, they enter the office and input their request on a tablet at the reception, or on their smartphone.
It happens in 10 seconds, to fulfill 5 clicks: Click on your “Avatar” picture, click on your charger number, how much energy (or KM) do you still have in your batteries, how much do you need, at what time will you leave ?

DYNAMIC LOAD CONTROL

Whatever the charging request were input at the charger or via NEOFLEET Tablet or Smartphone, all demands will be managed dynamically to avoid any overload. Should your office be equipped with solar panels, NEOFLEET will organize the charging planning regarding the sun forecast of the day, in order to use Solar Power as much as possible. NEOFLEET also takes into account the shadows generated by Cumulus clouds (that reduces the solar power during some minutes), by reducing temporarely the Charging power, and soon increase it again when the Cumulus is away.

REFUND HOME CHARGES

Some employees will be able to charge at home. Thus, NEOFLEET will automatically be informed of what they charged privately. Based on these data, NEOFLEET will establish their «Expenses report», let it be approved in the approval workflow, and then let it pay back the employee. All this, without any human action necessity, thus no “extra” adminustration.

T C E & R C U: THE KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR REAL COSTS

Thanks to the automatic import of Data into NEOFLEET, the Total Cost of Energy (TCE) is calculated by Car/Driver by taking into account the different “energy fuel” and their sourcing: at the office, at home, at public stations., from your Gazoline and electricity suppliers allow the calculation Total Cost of Energy (TCO) is calculated car by car, depending the way you «bought» it: buy, rent, lease …
A tool managing the Leasings and other “investment choices” will offer you the knowledge of your RCU (Real Cost of Use), even taking the fiscal impact into consideration (Incentive; taxes, …) .
A comparison/simulation tool will allow you to compare your cars with other models of cars, used by other clients also using NEOFLEET. These anonymous statistic data resulting from a real use by other clients, it will give you a precise idea about the TCE of other cars that could catch your attention.

EVENTS MANAGEMENT: YOUR BEST NEGOCIATION PARTNER

The EVENTS functionnality is a an efficient tool (available on Smartphones) to communicate between the drivers and the back office. It can be used to declare an act of vandalism, and accident, or any payment to be refund (by taking a picture). The Back-Office will get a warning in its AGILE Management Dashboard, allowing to follow the TO DO’s, IN PROGRESS, and DONE’s. In case of refund or call for payment, it will be added to the Expense Statement generated by NEOFLEET. Management of cars by a dedicated staff will be less time-consuming then ever before.
Added to the FILE/DOCUMENT management tool included in NEOFLEET, the formal documents (contracts, invoices, statements …) and data will offer you a accurate track-record, and be a good help for you future negociations (Insurance …); as well as a good tool to get the knowledge on your drivers costs & driving attitude.
