Over $500 million investment in US EV charger plants announced since 2021

As regular Charged readers know, the US Inflation Reduction Act has spurred a tidal wave of investment in battery plants, as well as mines and processing facilities for critical battery minerals. EVSE manufacturers have also been joining the party (or “lining up at the trough,” as a fiscal conservative might put it). The DOE’s Vehicle… Read more »

Vertexcom Technologies supports V2G standard in its chipset

Vertexcom Technologies, a smart charging communication chip design company, has announced support for ISO 15118-20 Bidirectional Power Transfer (BPT), also known as Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) transfer, in its chipsets. Vertexcom’s HomePlug GreenPHY SECC chipset MSE1021+MSEX24-i and EVCC chipset MSE1022+MSEX25-i support the implementation of ISO 15118-20 BPT. Drivers can save or make money by using electricity stored… Read more »

EV charge management isn’t just for fleet depots: Q&A with Qmerit founder and CEO

Q&A with Qmerit founder and CEO Tracy K. Price EV chargers aren’t the kind of hardware that’s typically installed by the customer—whether that customer is a homeowner who’s charging one EV, or a company with dozens of charging sites. An EV charger deployment generally requires the services of an installer (and larger projects sometimes involve… Read more »
