GE Energy’s Industrial Solutions business has launched the WattStation and WattStation Connect this week at the SAE 2012 World Congress in Detroit. The comprehensive electric vehicle charging station and software platform has numerous features. For example, it:

  • lets owners manage charging stations remotely,
  • lets them manage and set customer pricing for EV charging,
  • can generate reports of various types for the owners,
  • lets EV drivers view, locate, and get directions to EV charging stations from their smartphones or the internet,
  • lets EV drivers reserve charging stations,
  • gives users pricing details and determines whether a unit is available for charging,
  • gives users the ability to track their charging activity,

GE says that it teamed up with Hertz to develop the WattStation connect software due to Hertz’ leadership in offering electric vehicles around the world. “Their global EV solutions in the U.S., Europe and China require the advanced, networked stations that we offer,” said Michael Mahan, product general manager, EV infrastructure for GE Energy’s Industrial Solutions business.
