eMotorWerks Unveils New Smart EV Charging Network Technology

eMotorWerks has announced a new cloud based charging network for fleet owners and property managers that works with local utility companies to balance the grid and lower the cost of charging.

This week, eMotorWerks, now a division of Enel, will present a new way of making EV charging more accessible in public places, apartment complexes and workplaces, thanks to smart grid technology. Using EV supply equipment and cloud software solutions together, the Juice Net Enterprise system allows fleet operators, employers, and owners of commercial and residential real estate to manage a number of chargers at multiple locations from a single cloud-based dashboard.

The integrated system is expected to reduce the cost of electrical upgrades when charging equipment is installed, while permitting stakeholders to benefit from energy savings from demand response and time of use pricing options offered by local utilities, according to a company press release.

“Consumers spurred the EV revolution, but today charging at fleet depots and commercial buildings is becoming more critical as the electrification movement gains momentum,” said Val Miftakhov, Head of eMotorWerks. “We know people are more likely to purchase EVs if their workplaces offer charging options.

‘Now, commercial operators can offer EV charging as an integral component of their business operations while also allowing them to keep their capital and operating costs lower than what they can achieve through traditional offerings. It is a winning combination that may help expand the proliferation of EVs even faster.”

Here are some of the advantages of the eMotorWerks Juice Net Enterprise technology:

  • Install more EV chargers without costly electrical upgrades to building infrastructure.
  • Optimize renewable energy use by coordinating charging with peak solar and wind generation.
  • Reduce onsite peak electricity demand charges by sharing loads between chargers throughout the day.
  • Allow drivers to have their vehicles charged to the desired level when needed.
  • Permit drivers to locate available chargers using the Juice Net app.
  • Shift charging times to off peak hours when appropriate.
  • Avoid mid-day demand charges.
  • Promote grid stability by coordinating charging times with local utilities.

Chanje Energy has already deployed 65 of eMotorWerks’ JuiceBox Pro 40 charging stations in California, Illinois, and New York. “JuiceNet Enterprise allows us and our fleet customers to easily manage smart-grid charging for multiple vehicles and locations, across one simple dashboard,” says Suresh Jayanthi, vice president of energy services at Chanje Energy.

“As more fleets go electric, and more utilities strive for aggregated charging load management, it only makes sense that a technology like JuiceNet Enterprise is integrated into the energy solutions for our fleet customers, as well as any other large-scale charging network.”
