OVO’s energy platform Kaluza and Mitsubishi Corporation have today announced a new solution designed to benefit car manufacturers and energy firms in Japan.

Kaluza’s technology optimises connected EVs and heating systems to charge when energy is cheapest and greenest.

The technology aims to help customers save on their energy consumption while supporting the decarbonisation of the grid.
