A novel Smart Charging strategy, based on low base allowances per charger combined with 1. clustering of chargers on the same part of the grid and 2. dynamic non guaranteed allowance, is presented in this paper. This manner of Smart Charging will allow more than 3 times the amount of chargers to be installed in the existing grid, even when the grid is already congested. The system also improves the usage of available flexibility in EV charging compared to other Smart Charging strategies. The required algorithms are tested on public chargers in Amsterdam, in some of the most intensely used parts of the Dutch grid.
