EV charger with Power Manager (StrømKontroll)

Power Manager is a service from Futurehome that optimises the power consumption of selected devices, based on the spot price and grid tariffs. It aims to reduce the total energy cost, without compromising the household's comfort or needs.

Power Manager can optimise EV chargers by:

  • selecting the most cost-effective hours for charging
  • managing the charger alongside other devices to avoid excessive consumption during a particular hour
