JuiceBox charging stations from eMotorWerks use a cloud-based platform to adjust charging rates and times to enable grid operators to reduce energy costs, ease grid congestion and absorb excess renewable power.

 

Now eMotorWerks has gone a step farther, collaborating with non-profit software startupWattTime to produce the JuiceBox Green 40, a charger that lets users select the cleanest available energy.

 

WattTime’s “environmental demand response” platform automatically shifts production from dirty to clean power plants, helping renewables compete on the grid. WattTime’s software analyzes the local power grid in real time to identify moments when renewable sources, or comparatively efficient plants, are online, and adjusts EV charging schedules to draw on the cleanest power sources available.
