A joint project between electric vehicle (EV) charging station provider ClipperCreek and ZigBee product manufacturer Smartenit has resulted in a new, commercially available EV charging station that can connect to smart meters in a home area network (HAN).

The EV charging station uses the Smartenit ZOE-EVC, a ZigBee SEP 1.1-certified module that offers the ability to measure the charging profile and control the charging schedule. The project, which ClipperCreek says is an effort aimed at accelerating deployment of the smart grid, was sponsored by a major U.S. electric utility, and pilot rollout is expected to be completed in the first half of this year.

“The ZigBee SEP 1.x profile, now in use in millions of smart meters being installed all over the world, has proven to be a robust protocol on which to base the HAN, a major part of the smart grid,” comments Al Choperena, CEO of Smartenit.
