Our upgraded Energy Usage report now incorporates detailed information about various charging methods, empowering you with a deeper understanding of the charging landscape. This optimization leads to reduced downtime and improves overall operational efficiency. 

With this release, the Energy Usage report has been updated with energy charged from ACD (Automatic Connection Device), CCS (Combined Charging System) AC and CCS DC as a more detailed complement to the already existing AC and DC charging. The updated Energy Usage report is shown below.
