Esprit consists of an energy monitoring/ control device and an intelligent socket with communications between the two. The communication medium between the monitoring & control device and the intelligent socket will confirm which sockets are being used for EV' charging and it will allow the monitoring and control device to switch the sockets off/on dependent upon the demand on the low voltage circuit. Project Esprit will delay, and in some cases avoid, the need for additional electrical infrastructure to accommodate the forecast increase in EV's.
