Fermata Energy, a pioneer in vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology, has earned UL certification for its new FE-20 bidirectional charging system.
The FE-20 is now fully certified to UL 9741, the Standard for Bidirectional EV Charging System Equipment and UL 1741-SA, the Standard for Inverters, Converters, Controllers and Interconnection System Equipment for Use With Distributed Energy Resources, Supplement SA.
Tailored for commercial customers, the FE-20 is engineered with increased power, improved cost-effectiveness and enhanced features compared to its predecessor, the FE-15.
The FE-20 is developed exclusively for Fermata Energy by Heliox. This 20 kW bidirectional DC charger charges and discharges an EV’s batteries using Fermata Energy’s proprietary software platform, which is designed to balance an EV owner’s transportation needs with revenue opportunities when the vehicle is parked. Fleet operators can use these chargers to participate in utility programs that allow them to sell stored energy from EVs back into the grid or to offset peak demand costs.
“V2X bidirectional charging isn’t just a means to electrify—it’s a pathway to earning revenue. The FE-20, combined with our state-of-the-art AI software platform, is pivotal in this convergence of mobility and electrification,” said Tony Posawatz, CEO of Fermata Energy. “Earning UL certification exemplifies our dedication to excellence, safety, and regulatory compliance.”
