NRGkick Connect – solar energy for your electric car

Which driver of an electric car doesn’t dream about charging it with solar energy? In combination with the NRGkick charging unit, NRGkick Connect makes solar led charging possible!
With three easy and at the same time efficient charging strategies NRGkick Connect offers maybe the best solution for solar led charging available yet:

  • Surplus charging – your electric car is charged with the surplus solar energy
  • 100 % solar energy – all of the generated energy is used to charge the electric car
  • Supportive charging – for smaller photovoltaic systems. You can choose how much power from the grid is used in addition to the output of the PV-system

All that you need is:

  • NRGkick charging unit (Bluetooth-variant)
  • NRGkick Connect
  • Compatible inverter that is connected to the same network

At first, communication is possible with Fronius inverters. Other brands like SMA, Kostal,… will soon be added.

NRGkick Cloud – Access from anywhere!

You already made yourself comfortable at home, but right before going to bed you want to know the charging status of your NRGkick? You are at work and are wondering how many kilowatt hours have already been charged so you know if you can use your electric car in the evening?

NRGkick Connect and NRGkick Cloud make it possible! Via internet and NRGkick Cloud you can get information on the current charging status, change the charging settings and much more!

Monthly charging reports

NRGkick Connect creates monthly charging reports in order to guarantee an easy overview for you. You can see at a glance how many kWh you have been charging in the last month but that is not all of course: You are also informed how much of the charged energy has been generated by renewable sources!

Clear diagrams show you details on the course of charging and the daily charged energy for every day the report covers.

Automatic reporting

Thanks to NRGkick Connect and the NRGkick Cloud you don’t have to generate the monthly reports yourself. Let them conveniently be sent to you at the beginning of every month instead!

The automatic reporting function gladly handles this task for you and reliably sends you the monthly reports to your desired destination, for example via eMail.

Time controlled charging*

You want your electric car to be charged when the energy is cheapest? The feature “time controlled charging” of NRGkick Connect offers you exactly this: Just select a time window in which NRGkick shall charge your electric car and NRGkick Connect handles everything else! This way you can be sure to not only realize our vision to “charge. fast. anywhere.” but also that you do it exactly at the time you would like to.

*This feature will follow shortly after launch via free software update

Charging records and statistics*

NRGkick Connect remembers everything – inform yourself anytime and anywhere via NRGkick Cloud about:

  • total energy charged as well as energy charged in the last three charging cycles
  • resulting CO² savings
  • calculated energy costs
  • calculated distance traveled in km

You can set the price per kWh or how much energy your electric car consumes – this way you are always in control and can make sure to keep the data as accurate as possible. If you are rather a visual type you will be delighted to hear that NRGkick enables the processing of the reports and charging date into clear statistics and diagrams – directly in the App!

*The statistics-feature will follow shortly after launch via free software update

Alexa voice control*

What is easier than having your smartphone and all the charging settings in the palm of your hand, ready to change them anytime with one or two swipes? Letting someone else do it for you! NRGkick Connect can be integrated into Amazons Alexa voice control. This means that you now only have to tell your Alexa what you want to be done – that’s it!

No matter if you want to start or stop the charging process or you just want to now how much energy has already been charged – NRGkick Connect and Alexa react to your voice commands and execute them immediately. Charging your electric car has never been easier or more comfortable!

*This feature will follow shortly after launch via free software update

WiFi + Bluetooth

NRGkick Connect is able to connect via WiFi and Bluetooth. This way it can connect to your NRGkick charging unit via Bluetooth – and spans a bridge to your WiFi home network. The result is an enormous enhancement of functionalities and Smart Features and gives you the possibility to connect to your NRGkick charging unit anywhere and anytime – all you need is an Internet connection.

Web-API

Wouldn’t it be nice if NRGkick Connect could be integrated into your specific smart home or photovoltaic system? With our open Web-API this is no longer just an imagination: You can integrate your own applications and thanks to our system being open you can be sure that all other manufacturers are able to integrate NRGkick Connect and its functionalities!

Therefore, NRGkick Connect is absolutely future proof and can be connected to interfaces from other manufacturers now or in the future.

Coming soon… many more feature updates!

NRGkick Connect is constantly being devloped – shortly after launch features like time controlled charging, charging statistics and Alexa voice Control will be made availabe with a free feature update.

But this is not all of course: We are working on adding even more Features that make your NRGkick Connect smarter than it already is:

  • Integrating new inverter systems for the solar led charging – for more connectivity
  • Link to electricity exchanges – Charge your electric car only when the energy is as cheap as you would like it to be
  • Energy demand management – charge your electric car as fast as possible whilst taking into account the energy consumption of other devices in your household
