A world-first trial has found that drivers can halve their electric vehicle charging costs using ChargeIQ – an Australian-developed electric vehicle charger.

As part of the Victorian Government’s Electric Vehicle Trial, DiUS Computing delivered a demand management demonstration project using Victoria’s Smart Grid.
