Real-world implementation of smart charging: Challenges and lesson learned
Gilles Van Kriekinge
Vrije Universiteit Brussel – MOBI
Gilles Van Kriekinge obtained his Master's Degree in Electromechanical engineering at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) in 2019, with a specialization in energy. His master thesis is about a techno-economic assessment of the integration of solar energy, storage system and vehicle-to-grid technology in a microgrid. He is currently a PhD candidate at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and is working on the project “Optimized bi-directional & smart vehicle charging in local energy systems (OPTIBIDS)".
