Chanje partners with eMotorWerks to develop smart charging platform

chanje-emotorwerks

Chanje, a newly announced electric vehicle company, is partnering with eMotorWerks to deliver an energy-as-a-service (EaaS) program to its commercial fleet customers with a smart charging platform. The fleet operating system Chanje is deploying with the eMotorWerks JuiceNet platform employs automated, multi-tiered control algorithms and load balancing to allow multiple charging stations to operate simultaneously under peak load settings. Automated load management helps Chanje’s fleet customers lower their operating costs while also enabling utilities and grid operators to avoid excessive strain on local electrical circuits and the grid as a whole. Additionally, by utilizing the JuiceNet platform, fleet operators have the opportunity to participate in energy services programs such as demand response activities which benefit their local electric grids and lowers the fleet’s total cost of operation, according to Chanje.

These stations will give commercial fleet operators access to a customized cloud-based JuiceNet control platform to manage EV charging, including remote access control, automatic energy management to avoid peak pricing, smart algorithms to maximize charging with available renewable energy from the grid, and electricity usage tracking, the company said.

Chanje is also introducing a customer portal that helps fleet operators manage their daily energy requirements by aggregating data from the vehicle telematics and charging platform. For example, by looking at vehicle usage analytics, fleet operators can make real-time adjustments to manage driver and route inefficiencies to prevent unnecessary spikes in usage and control the total cost of operation.
