eMotorWerks + EDF = Intelligent EVSE Deployment For Demand Management

A recent partnership between eMotorWerks and EDF is aimed at expanding intelligent network of charging stations to enable grid-scale demand management. EDF will integrate into its EVSE eMotorWerks’ cloud-connected JuiceNet software to offer drivers the option to charge with low- or no-carbon electricity. On top of that EDF intends to develop intelligent solutions to control the demand on the grid. JuiceNet software allows for real-time visibility of major grid parameters and control of EV charging demand.


CleanTechnica highlights eMotorWerks’ commitment to play an important role as the mediator in the energy market: “The new partnership shows not only the foresight of eMotorWerks’ strong focus on building not only chargers but an intelligent control platform that offers immense value to utilities looking for more control over the massive new loads being put onto their grids.“

Integration of EVs Becoming a Priority for Utilities

As the sales of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids are growing, utilities get more and more interested in using the electric controllable load to balance renewable generation and to improve load distribution.


Utility companies view electric vehicles as “mobile energy storage units” which are critical to meet peak load requirements through demand response and contribute to grid stability. eMotorWerks is already partnering with Pacific Gas and Electric and Sonoma Clean Power in California to provide such grid services.

Need Car-Charging Infrastructure? How About Peer-To-Peer And On The Blockchain

The lack of electric vehicle charging sites is seen as a barrier to a wider spread and greater sales of electricity-fueled cars. “There are currently about 44,000 EV charging stations in the U.S, according to U.S. government figures, compared to 168,000 nationwide that sell fuel,” writes Ben Schiller at Fast Company. In addition, the installation and the cost of charging stations at public sites far exceeds those installed at home.


In order to expand the network of available public charging stations, eMotorWerks teamed up with MotionWerk to create a peer-to-peer car charging. Owners of EVSEs can offer their devices to other electric vehicle drivers and get paid via Share&Charge, MotionWerk’s blockchain-enabled app.

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.
