ChargeSim is a design and analysis software that helps fleet operators, charger providers, and utilities to find the right chargers and utility capacity for their fleet.
eDepotPlanner software was built to help professionals design more effective charging infrastructure, balancing the needs of successfully charging the vehicles against operational costs like energy and vehicle movements versus capital costs like more chargers and bigger utility connections.
Our e-bus fleet software solution allows you to explore different options for utility capacity, charger selection, on base workflow and smart charging strategies. Often, simple operational changes like parking sequence can substantially improve performance, if you have the tool to find them. Contact us for more information.
The eDepotPlanner is a software solution that helps you plan, optimize and manage your transition to a zero emission bus fleet.

V2G is often discussed as an important feature - but when is it valuable and how much could it be worth?Read blog
It is important to know your energy demand prior to construction of a project. By calculating the power requirements upfront, you can get the right utility capacity. Avoid having too little power, and not being able to charge, or wasting time and money on unnecessary capacity.
Electricity grid capacity is becoming increasingly scarce in many markets, so being able to fit your operation within a smaller available capacity can often mean further electricity grid construction isn't required, saving considerable costs and project delays.
With a big fleet coming and going it is a difficult puzzle to find the best setup for your needs. In our software you can load your transport schedule, energy prices and solar profiles to find clear insights in your requirements and potential savings.
Our visualizations and reporting help you quickly understand the tradeoffs and find the lowest cost solution for you.
For planning simulations, typically a few minutes.
For OCPP simulations it will depend on the backoffice and how fast you can accelerate the operation. Depending on your backoffice setup accelerated operation may require some adaptations since the OCPP protocol is only designed for real-time use. (e.g. 1kWh will be delivered in under 1h in accelerated mode, but if the backoffice cross checks this it could cause a warning.)
In real time mode it will take as long as you intend to simulate.
The results can be downloaded in various formats such as .csv, .xlsx ,.docx, .png, .svg and .jpg depending on the data. You can generate full summary reports for simulations in .docx format and download most raw data in .xlsx
No, ChargeSim is purely a design and testing tool. Our planing tools are usually used before chargers are purchased to select the most suitable setup and are vendor agnostic. They can be used to help improve workflows and smart charging of existing sites. Our OCPP tools can be used to test, validate, demonstrate and train people on smart charging software that will later control the actual chargers. We don’t make software for day-to-day operation of depots and smart charging. There are several vendors who do, and our tools can help you get an unbiased view on the value they can add.
We can use a proprietary excel format, or GTFS which is often available publicly from agencies. Other formats like KV1 and VDV452 are supported. These schedules can also help with planning on-route charging.
Our software supports multi-site operation. Simulations can have vehicles scheduled to charge at many different locations, such as a depot and transit exchanges.
With eDepotPlanner you can try different combinations virtually and see what will be most effective for your operation.
The software can simulate nose-to-tail lane parking, including evaluating if parking positions are obstructed by other parked vehicles, or vehicles are blocked in and unable to leave until vehicles further ahead have departed.
This depends on your subscription, our subscription tiers scale with the number of vehicles. We can simulate hundreds of vehicles.
