The energy company E.ON has received an award for one of "The 100 Best Ideas" by the “Recargo” photovoltaic charging project for vehicles. The project is a collaboration with other companies Urbaser and CIRCUTOR, and it is the third year that E.ON has received this electric mobility award.
The project is an innovative solution in Europe for managing electric vehicle charging in companies, using the sun as a source of energy for instantaneous self-consumption. This project was carried out at the installations of Urbaser with the technological collaboration of CIRCUTOR.

The photovoltaic charging solution can result in savings of €3,200 a year, with an annual return on investment of 4.5%, in addition to saving nearly a tonne of CO2 emissions per year. In this sense, it is not only a tool for saving money, but for rationalising energy use, better operational management and better environmental friendliness.
Energy measurement and control units (CIRCUTOR EDS and EDS 3G, CVM analyzers were used to control photovoltaic generation and energy use. Once the measurements were taken, the data was analysed and monitored using PowerStudio SCADA energy management software.
The Energy Report presents the energy generated and consumed by the different system elements, indicating the total energy generated or consumed over specific periods of time.
CIRCUTOR has developed modular solar energy solutions (self-consumption solar kit)to provide an instantaneous self-consumption solution with energy savings to the general public. These solutions are especially designed for small and medium-scale installations and are available through any sales channel. They also include the necessary components to comply with regulations on photovoltaic installations for instantaneous self-consumption.

Due to growing interest in instantaneous self-consumption in Spain, CIRCUTOR is offering information seminars on self-consumption and training sessions, to support technicians and development managers in these types of installations. You can look up the dates for the seminars and training sessions on the CIRCUTOR website. The Legalisation guide for instantaneous self-consumption installations is also available. You may also contact CIRCUTOR by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
You can also follow our publications through the CIRCUTOR Twitter account, and in Linkedin.
