Employee charging @ work – More cars than charging points? Let’s develop a user-friendly optimization!
Limited Capacity filling up

  • Introduction to the KielFlex project
  • Presentation Showcase " Headquarters Stadtwerke Kiel"
  • Developing a user friendly optimization for employee charging. The goal is to develop a concept how employee charging can be organized in the case that there are more electrical vehicles than charging points. It could be that one car is standing on a parking spot even if the battery doesn't need to charge anymore. Instead of blocking the parking spot this car should move and make space for another EV.
  • May be of specific interest to coding and gaming dudes by show casing your problem solving skills!?
