The load distribution
Updated over a week ago

⚡️How it works

The maximum power of a charging point is made available to a vehicle when no other charging session is in progress on the same charging point.

💡 The power made available by the terminal is not always the one accepted by the vehicle.

⭐️ Edge cases

  1. The total power available from a bollard cannot be divided into 2 equal parts.

    The explanation for this is technical: bollards each contain "packets" of power called stacks, and these are always allocated in their entirety to a charging session.


    A 225kW Alpitronic bollard is equipped with 3 75kW stacks. The distribution between two vehicles will then be: 150kW for one place (2 stacks of 75kW) and 75kW for the other (1 remaining stack).

  2. The user of the application has entered his vehicle.

    When charging starts, the terminal will recognize the vehicle and identify the maximum charge power accepted, depending on the battery level (SOC). It can then adapt the power available.


    A Peugeot e-208 arriving at the station with 60% of its battery will be offered 75kW by the terminal, even though it can reach 100kW of charging power when its battery is less full.

🚀 Network developments

To date, few vehicles on the market allow charging power in excess of 250kW.

However, we are working on upgrading our network equipment to offer our users a maximum power per charging station of 400kW, or 200kW per vehicle if power is shared!
