In this contribution, we stress the importance of electric mobility in nowadays, since sales of Electric Vehicles (EV) in the world have exceeded one million cars and current number of charging stations are rapidly growing. In this context, this paper introduces a novel smart connection called DriWe between the EV, the charging point and the environment, in order to improve and consolidate the development of smart grids vs the charging enhancement. In DriWe, performance of the monophasic environment is optimized, providing support to the owner of the EV in order to (i) always achieve maximum power, (ii) easily reach the charging facilities through a special application that can be installed in tablet, smartphone or pc, and identify the various charge points (iii) guarantee the absence of electric blackout, thanks to a combination and an interaction of three elements: smart device, an intelligent framework, namely a DriWe cloud server and charge point. A dynamic load control method, which is based on an API (Application Programming Interface) with a 10 s frame rate update, is applied. The program runs within the end-user smart phone, acquires data from DriWe cloud server, and allows to coordinate the recharge column by allowing the electric vehicle supply equipment’s control and variation.
