SAN CARLOS, Calif., Nov. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Further expanding its reach as the leader in internet of things electric vehicle charging solutions, eMotorWerks, an Enel Group company, has announced a new partnership with Autochargers.ca that will result in approximately 100 new manufacturing jobs in Ontario, Canada. The partnership will deliver co-branded and tailored EV charging solutions throughout Canada. The charging solutions will be available through the Autochargers.ca web store and their reseller partners, which include electrical contractors and car dealerships.
“We’re pleased to help accelerate Autochargers.ca’s existing success in the market through local manufacturing as well as grid services penetration with Canadian utilities,” said Valery Miftakhov, founder, and CEO of eMotorWerks. “Together we will offer the best smart-charging products to power the impressive EV adoption growth across Canada.”
By partnering with eMotorWerks Autochargers.ca customers will have access to cloud-connected and intelligent charging stations (EVSE) using the JuiceBox charging hardware and WiFi and cloud-connected JuiceNet software platform. With JuiceNet-enabled smart grid optimizations, EV drivers enjoy optimized renewable energy generation by tapping into periods of maximum solar and wind generation to charge their EVs. In certain geographies, drivers can also receive smart grid incentives which leverage scheduled charging. The collaboration allows utilities to shape electric load and thus avoid peak energy costs and improve grid reliability by better managing energy ramps and other peak demand on the grid.
“Scalable EV infrastructure solutions are top of mind for not only utilities, but also partners and advocates of EV adoption,” said Gleb Nikiforov, Autochargers.ca CEO and Founder. “That is why we are thankful to the Ontario Prime Minister Kathleen Wynne and the Minister of Transportation Steven Del Duca for facilitating such an important development in the greenest province in Canada. By utilizing eMotorWerks’ JuiceNet software platform we can deliver a significantly differentiated solution to ensure that drivers are getting the cleanest and lowest cost energy mix possible. We are happy to partner with eMotorWerks and are excited to offer these exciting co-branded products to drivers.”
This agreement with Autochargers marks yet another co-branded charging solution partnership for eMotorWerks. This news comes on the heels of the recent acquisition of eMotorWerks by multinational renpower company Enel. Autochargers joins a growing ecosystem of platform partners delivering innovative energy applications atop JuiceNet. Other notable partnerships for eMotorWerks include global EVSE solutions providers AeroVironment, Volta and Webasto, and the cashless payment solution provider
