"Our goal is to help our customers succeed by providing them with
valuable capabilities, and our new relationship with eMotorWerks helps
us achieve that goal," said
For electric utilities, the JuiceNet integration, via open APIs and industry standards such as OpenADR, makes it possible to aggregate fleets of charging EVs. Such a high level of control over EV charging load allows utilities to modulate energy demand on the grid, and to shift and spread out EV charging loads to times when renewable resources are more abundant or energy rates are lower.
"AeroVironment is a recognized industry pioneer and leader in EV charging solutions," said Valery Miftakhov, founder and CEO of eMotorWerks. "Drivers and car manufacturers will get the best of both worlds through integrating our cloud solutions with AeroVironment's broad range of safe, proven, EV charging solutions. Together we will offer the best products to our customers to power the continued adoption of EVs."
The integration of eMotorWerks' market-leading solutions for smart-grid
charging enables EV drivers to control their charging via smartphone
applications, and in certain geographies, earn frequent charging rewards
through eMotorWerks' exclusive platform and utility partnerships.
Drivers can also optimize the mix of renewable energy used when charging
their vehicles. JuiceNet has the capability to increase the relative
percentage of renewable energy used to charge a driver's EV by setting
the "Green Charging" feature. Charge times are automatically optimized
to match the periods of highest renewable energy generation on the grid.
