  • Patent number: 10850625
    Abstract: A charge transfer device for transferring charge between a local power grid and an electric vehicle is mounted to a street light. The charge transfer device includes a control device to control application of charge transfer between the local power grid and the electric vehicle. The charge transfer device is coupled to the local power grid through a wiring box that also couples the street light to the local power grid. The charge transfer device includes a current measuring device to measure an amount of current flowing for charge transfer. The charge transfer device includes a controller to cause the control device to control application of charge transfer and monitor output from the current measuring device.

  • Publication number: 20190152339
    Abstract: An electric vehicle charging station network server that manages a plurality of charging stations receives subscriber notification message preferences for a subscriber (e.g., electric vehicle operator) that indicate one or more events of interest for which the subscriber wishes to receive notification messages. A set of one or more contact points associated with the subscriber is also received. The server receives data associated with the subscriber that indicates that a charging session at one of the charging stations has been established for an electric vehicle associated with the subscriber. The server detects an event of interest for the subscriber and transmits a notification message for that event to at least one of the set of contact points associated with the subscriber.

  • Patent number: 10189359
    Abstract: An electric vehicle charging station network server which manages a plurality of charging stations receives subscriber notification message preferences for a subscriber (e.g., electric vehicle operator) which indicate one or more events of interest that the subscriber wishes to receive notification messages for. A set of one or more contact points associated with the subscriber is also received. The server authorizes the subscriber to use one of the plurality of charging stations. The server receives data associated with the subscriber from that one of the charging stations which indicates that a charging session has been established for an electric vehicle associated with the subscriber. The server detects an event of interest for the subscriber and transmits a notification message for that event to at least one of the set of contact points associated with the subscriber.
