Wallbox Charger (Spain) was named a winner of the The smarter E AWARD 2023 in the Category "Outstanding Projects" for the application of its SIRIUS energy management system.
Wallbox has reshaped how companies generate, store, and use electricity. At its Barcelona headquarters, Wallbox installed its SIRIUS energy management system as a greener and cheaper alternative to upgrading its network infrastructure.
Using data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and internet-of-things technology, SIRIUS integrates the power grid with its distributed energy resources. It combines a fleet of 23 Nissan Leaf electric vehicles with bi-directional charging, a 400-kilowatt photovoltaic installation, and 560 kilowatt-hours of on-site battery storage.
In 2022, Wallbox was able to reduce its CO2 emissions by 73 metric tonnes and its energy bills by over 40 percent. In addition, SIRIUS enabled cost savings of half a million euros compared to grid expansion through the flexible and intelligent design of the decentralized energy sources.
