Smart charging

With smart charging we make optimal use of available renewable energy sources, rather than charging your car instantly and as fast as possible. This makes us less reliable on gas- and coal-fired power stations.

To calculate the best possible charging schedule we look at the weather forecast, the energy market, and your smart charging preferences. A longer charging session and lower desired charging level gives us more flexibility to charge smart, resulting in higher CO2 savings.
Save CO2

By smart charging your car the demand for energy is evener spread over the day. This increases the use of solar- and wind energy and makes gas plants more and more redundant. The more people start smart charging, the faster the transition to 100% renewable energy sources. By switching to our green energy contract ALL charged energy is guaranteed green.

Get rewarded

You earn points with every smart session. These points can be exchanged for gift vouchers, up to € 100 per year! To exchange points you switch to our energy contract.

Get charging costs automatically compensated

The costs of home charging can add up considerably, and this can be inconvenient if you have to pay them in advance. With our energy contract the costs of home charging are directly paid by the employer, resulting in a lower monthly energy bill.

To decide on your smart charging schedule we take the following into account:

We always charge your car directly to a minimum of 37,5%. In that case, you can always use your car when you're in a hurry, and we have confirmation of the connectivity with your car.

We make sure your car is charged to (at least) the desired charge level for your next departure. Sometimes we charge a bit extra, for example when the green energy supply is high.

We use an algorithm, including factors like energy demand and weather forecasts, to calculate an optimal charging schedule for the given time frame.

When you use the Boost mode, your car as fully charged as fast as possible.
You can charge smart at your private charge point from Allego. You need to connect your charge point with our app and you need to have a smart meter at home.
Yes, as long as your charger is connected we can smart charge your car.


For every session you can indicate your desired charge level. Did something come up or are you in a hurry? Use the Boost function in the app. With Boost your car's battery will be fully charged as fast as possible.

Please note: with Boost we can't make optimal use of available renewable energy sources.
You can charge regularly with the Boost mode in the app. With Boost your car's battery will be fully charged as fast as possible.

Please note: with Boost we can't make optimal use of available renewable energy sources.
We advise you to allow push notifications. In that case, you'll receive a message on your phone directly after the start of a new session. You can follow your session on the Home screen in the app.
You can set your next departure time in the app at the start of- or during a session. By default we will use the settings from your weekly schedule.
Yes you can. To change your settings open the app and edit your settings via the Home screen. It is also possible to change your weekly schedule at any time.
Yes, the app is free of charge. Even better, the more you use the app for smart charging your car, the more you get rewarded.
The use of other EV apps next to our Smart Charging app is not recommended. The charging preferences in other apps can disturb our smart charging schedule which will result in suboptimal charging.

Below is a list of apps with charging preferences who can disturb the smart charging schedule of your car:
