Bidirectional charging pioneer Fermata Energy has integrated its Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) services platform with bidirectional EV chargers manufactured by BorgWarner.
The integration of Fermata’s software with BorgWarner’s hardware, including both 60 kW and 125 kW UL-certified chargers, enables Fermata’s platform to optimize V2X bidirectional charging commands with a Combined Charging System (CCS) communication protocol.
Fermata is actively working with various automotive OEMs to embed bidirectional charging capabilities. Last November, the company announced a research project with Toyota and San Diego Gas & Electric. In 2022, Nissan approved Fermata’s FE-15 bidirectional charger for use with the Nissan LEAF in the US.
Fermata and BorgWarner recently collaborated a bidirectional EV charging hub that launched in British Columbia in December.
“As two early market leaders in the V2X bidirectional charging space, we’re thrilled to partner with BorgWarner,” said Tony Posawatz, CEO of Fermata Energy. “The integration of our technologies not only broadens economic EV accessibility, but it reinforces our commitment to accelerate a renewable energy ecosystem.”
