An electric fleet can be more profitable over its service life than a conventional fleet. The cost components involved sometimes differ however. Alongside the creation of an optimal charging infrastructure, companies should pay particular attention to the following points if they want to charge their e-vehicles cost-effectively.
Grid Connection: Expansion of the grid connection can be extremely expensive. Load balancing can help avoid or reduce expansion of the connection capacity.
Demand charges: These charges are based on the maximum drawn power, also known as peak load. This can also be reduced by load balancing, which leads to significant cost savings each year.
