eMotorWerks Partners with EDF in Expansion of JuiceNet Internet of Things Electric Vehicle Charging Technology



SAN CARLOS, Calif., Sept. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Further expanding its reach as the leader in internet of things electric vehicle charging solutions, eMotorWerks announced a new partnership with EDF. The partnership, based on due diligence from EDF Innovation Lab located in Silicon Valley, provides EDF with cloud-connected and intelligent charging stations (EVSE) using eMotorWerks' charging hardware and its JuiceNet software platform. The charging solution aims to empower customers to charge their EVs on clean energy, while providing a valuable software platform on which EDF can develop new solutions.

"Electrification of the transportation sector is essential for reaching our ambitious decarbonization goals," explained Jan van der Lee, Vice President of R&D and Innovation at EDF. "EDF has studied EVSE platform technology for a number of years, and eMotorWerks, with its state-of-the-art and fast-learning platform solution and expanded list of charging hardware options, has shown to be a viable partner from a technical and commercial standpoint. And the grid service capabilities give utilities the option to keep fossil fuel generation sources dormant and meet peak load requirements through demand response."

By utilizing JuiceNet smart-grid optimizations, EDF will be able to leverage renewable energy generation by tapping into solar and wind over-generation to charge EVs, as well as partake in smart grid incentives through scheduled charging. This collaboration allows EDF and its customers to shape electric load, avoid peak energy costs, and improve grid reliability by better managing energy ramps and other peak demand on the grid.

"EDF has a long history and incredible vision for supplying innovative renewable ideas to their customers, and we're pleased to provide core intelligence around load management for their EV charging solutions," said Valery Miftakhov, founder, and CEO of eMotorWerks. "With this collaboration, EV drivers can be more confident that they are in good hands when integrating our JuiceNet cloud solutions and proven JuiceBox EVSE technology through EDF's expertise and network. Together we will offer the best smart charging products to power the impressive EV adoption growth across North America."

The growing eMotorWerks software and grid services business is enabled by its award-winning JuiceNet platform, which employs automated, multi-tiered control algorithms and load balancing to allow EV drivers the flexibility to charge their cars on the cleanest and least expensive energy available. The JuiceNet platform gives utilities improved real-time visibility of major grid parameters and control of EV charging demand. With this visibility, eMotorWerks helps grid operators and utilities improve load distribution and grid stability while minimizing the need for expensive generation or transmission & distribution infrastructure upgrades.

This agreement with EDF marks yet another white-label partnership for eMotorWerks' JuiceNet platform. The EDF brand joins a growing list of key software development partners that are delivering innovative energy applications atop the JuiceNet platform. This news comes on the heels of a recent price reduction of the newest models of eMotorWerks charging stations and the company's listing as the 16th fastest growing company in Silicon Valley and the 19th fastest growing energy company in the US by the Inc. 5000 list. Other notable partnerships for eMotorWerks include global EVSE solutions providers AeroVironment, Share&Charge (Division of Innogy), Volta and Webasto, and the cashless payment solution provider Nayax. eMotorWerks has deployed over 22,000 smart-grid charging stations to date, with top rated products on Amazon and other direct and reseller channels.
