The Norwegian/Swedish-based company Tibber has launched a whole new generation of electric vehicle home chargers. They did this together with their hardware partner Easee. The charger is developed to help reduce the costs of charging electric cars at home.
The charger will do so with the help of so called “smart charging technology”, which means that the charger lowers charging speed for small periods at a time, when the power grid is in an immediate need to reduce consumption.
The charger is also equipped with technology that charges your electric car when the price of electric power is low. If you smart charge with Tibber, they guarantee that you get a 20% lower charging bill in Norway and a 50% lower bill in Sweden.
The charger can charge on both 1 and 3 phase and supports charging up to 22 kW, depending on which installation you choose. It has a Type 2 standard charging connector.
Tibber also launched 2 other products
The heart rate monitor for your home
This is a small box called Pulse, which is plugged into the new automatic flow meter (AMS) that all households in Norway and Sweeden is soon to have, giving you a constant overview of power consumption at home.
The purpose is to give the user an overview of which electric installations that uses power and how to reduce power consumption, in addition to informing you whether there is a power outage, or something goes wrong when you’re not at home.
Smart heat control with Tibber and Mill
The third product launched was a collaboration with the Norwegian electrical radiator manufacturer Mill, where the radiator uses Tibber’s technology for automatic heat control. Tibber already offers this technology for controlling air-condition-systems.
The product considers weather forecasts, thermal load, and the price of electric power to determine the effect you need for heating the house to avoid wasting power. It should be so easy to use that you only need to choose the desired temperature at home in the app, and Tibber will fix the rest.
