eMotorWerks and Nayax partner to develop smart grid-enabled charging stations

eMotorWerks has teamed with EV Meter, a subsidiary of Nayax, to develop JuiceStation, a dual 40-amp smart grid-enabled charging station. Nayax operates over 30,000 point of sale terminals at convenience stores, service stations, and shopping centers.

JuiceStation features access control, flexible payment options, energy management and reporting features. In conjunction with eMotorWerks’ JuiceNet cloud-based solution, it is designed to allow fleet managers and charging station operators to offer convenient, fast, and accessible EV charging.

The JuiceNet platform also offers automated, multi-tiered control algorithms and load balancing that enables multiple stations to operate simultaneously under “peak load” settings that avoid excessive strain on electrical circuits. It can be coordinated with third-party energy management systems to minimize costs by reducing electricity demand charges.

Nayax’s automated machine platform, VPOS Touch (Virtual Point of Sale), will augment JuiceNet’s capabilities with cashless payments, cellular communication, remote management, monitoring and analytics.

“Electric car drivers across the US are demanding access to reliable EV stations with open payment options, something that the industry has been unable to meet with one complete, easy-to-use solution. Partnering with eMotorWerks enables us to deliver on driver needs while lowering operating costs for fleet managers with a proven, cloud-based solution,” said Yair Nechmad, CEO of Nayax.

“We are delighted to offer this smart grid-enabled public charging station,” said eMotorWerks founder and CEO Valery Miftakhov. “After establishing ourselves in residential charging solutions, it is a natural progression to provide our technology for non-residential charging locations via partnerships such as this one with Nayax.”

    Encouraging. When I think of smart grid my mind races to V2G or V2H. Are there any commercially available products in this area? Any in the works? It seems like years ago Nissan dabbled in it but I havent seen much progression.
