The intelligence exists to do this but nobody has implemented it yet, except Schneider as far as I know.  The AES BMS does communicate with them.

I hope soon some sort of standard interface/language exists to allow the lithium BMS to command its own charging requirements / state of charge.  The era of dumb batteries is ending.


Check out used Tesla Battery Modules if you are open to DIY- 250 kWh (including a high quality BMS). Im building a test set up now and will report back
