eMotorWerks JuiceBox Pro 40 gets UL Listed

Tom Moloughney, a writer at InsideEVs and EV advocate, has recently published a review of an updated UL Listed JuiceBox Pro 40. Impressed by its Wi-Fi connectivity and JuiceNet app which allows to view current and past charging sessions, set up notifications and adjust the amount of energy, Tom now highlights an additional benefit of this “very popular EVSE”: JuiceBox Pro has become UL Listed.

 

The UL certification is an expensive and time-consuming process, especially for smaller companies. Another complication is the need to re-certify a product if it gets new features.

 

“This is newsworthy because the JuiceBox has become a very popular EVSE, and the fact that it wasn’t UL listed has been a hotly debated topic here and on many online EV forums”, writes Tom Moloughney.

Blockchain-Enabled Electric Car Charging Comes to California

On August 2nd, eMotorWerks launched a beta test of a distributed, peer-to-peer charging marketplace in California that allows electric vehicle drivers to pay each other for use of their home charging stations. The company is using Share&Charge platform running on blockchain technology.

 

eMotorWerks sees this program as a part of their strategy to move from hardware sales and focus on software services which are likely to generate more value to customers. The idea behind peer-to-peer charging marketplace is to expand the number of available charging stations and thus reduce EV drivers’ concern about range and promote electric vehicles.

 

While addressing the shortage of public charging infrastructure, electric vehicle drivers participating in the program not only earn extra money from renting out their EVSE, but also feel good about going green, reducing gas emissions and helping out fellow drivers.

CAISO Defers Proxy Demand Response Resource Sought by Storage Companies

In its efforts to better manage generation oversupply and solar curtailments, CAISO is going to present the results of the Energy Storage and Distributed Energy (ESDER) Phase 2 initiative to its board in July.

 

eMotorWerks, together with other energy storage advocates, such as Tesla and Stem, expressed support for the development of a bidirectional Proxy Demand Resource (PRD) product which is based on excess generation.

 

However, the grid operator will defer the consideration of a PDR product until phase three of ESDER. CAISO needs to analyze the limits of battery resources and other multi-use storage issues.

eMotorwerks Chargers Add Intelligence To Home EV Charging (CleanTechnica Interview)

Kyle Field from CleanTechnica spoke with Preston Roper, eMotorWerks Chief Marketing and Operating Officer, and learned about company’s business and plans for future growth.

 

Apart from its hardware business - manufacturing smart grid EV charging stations, eMotorWerks has built a cloud-based software platform - JuiceNet - that taps into the massive potential of electric vehicle charging to serve as a “flexible, dynamic load”. Utility operators use it to balance the production and consumption of grid power.

 

eMotorWerks’ smart-grid electric vehicle charging technologies are similar to the “virtual power plant” model as they allow to maximize generated load on the grid, optimize the mix of renewables, and make grid reliable. The self-learning component of the platform determines driver’s needs and rewards them for flexible charging sessions through JucieNet Rewards program. By participating in the energy market EV owners help the grid to avoid demand spikes.

 

The company continues to grow significantly as more and more drivers see value in its products, and doubled its revenues in 2016 for the third consecutive year.
