LG Electronics introduces integrated management solution for electric vehicle charging stations
Business agreement to create an energy-mobility convergence station
[The story of the case / Reporter Park Yeon-pa] = LG Electronics and GS Caltex will start a pilot service of an integrated EV charging station management solution.
LG Electronics provided an electric vehicle charging station integrated management solution to GS Caltex's Energy+ Hub, a future gas station newly opened in Seocho-gu, Seoul on the 18th. The two companies signed a “business agreement for the creation of an energy-mobility convergence station” in early 2019 and have continued to cooperate.
GS Caltex held the Energy Plus Hub launch event on the 18th and introduced the appearance of a future gas station that reinterpreted the existing gas station space for the upcoming electric vehicle era. Major executives from both companies, including GS Caltex CEO Se-Hong Huh, and LG Electronics Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Park Il-pyeong, attended the event.
The two companies created a future gas station by adding a total of four quick chargers, solar panels, digital signage, and a dedicated control system, including one 350kW charger to the existing gas station. In addition to the services provided by conventional gas stations such as gas and car washing, it has an infrastructure for charging and sharing electric vehicles.
The integrated management solution for electric vehicle charging stations introduced by LG Electronics enables integrated control such as △monitoring the status of the charger and real-time charging status, △automated charging and payment, and △remote control and diagnosis.
It is convenient for charging station operators to check the status of individual charging stations as well as view the status of multiple charging stations located across the country at a glance and manage them remotely. You can also receive reports on charging station status and customer usage based on big data.
In addition, after the customer registers the user information in the system once, the charger automatically recognizes the vehicle from the time of charging afterwards and automatically processes charging and payment. When combined with a signage solution, it provides not only usage status, charging amount, and charging speed, but also various information required by customers such as real-time traffic information and life information.
LG Electronics and GS Caltex plan to continue to expand the service in the future through a pilot operation.
LG Electronics established an A&B (Automotive & Business Solutions) center under the CTO at the end of 2018, and is securing related capabilities by conducting advanced developments in various mobility convergence services fields.
LG Electronics CTO President Park Il-pyeong said, “In the era of digital transformation, we will continue to discover future technologies and new business opportunities by accumulating and utilizing big data through collaboration with partners in various industries.”
