SolarEdge Introduces Solar-Attached EV Management Solution for the Commercial and Industrial Segment
The new software-based solution, which further expands SolarEdge`s growing suite of C&I-focused products and software, manages and optimizes the EV charging process for sites that require dynamic load management and have large quantities of EVs, such as apartment buildings, workplaces and public charging locations.
MILPITAS, Calif. - June 5, 2023 - SolarEdge Technologies, a global leader in smart energy technology, today announced the launch of a solar-attached Electric Vehicle (EV) management solution for the Commercial and Industrial (C&I) segment.
The EV charging management solution is powered by technology developed by Wevo Energy ("Wevo"), a startup specializing in EV charging optimization and management software, in which SolarEdge is an investor.
"As more companies are taking active measures to electrify their car fleets, combining solar PV and EV charging is a cost-effective and sustainable way to manage these fleets," said Zvi Lando, CEO of SolarEdge Technologies. "We believe SolarEdge C&I PV solutions, combined with Wevo's advanced EV charging management capabilities, will help businesses use energy more economically and sustainably."
"Wevo's solution is already deployed at thousands of parking spaces globally. The combination of Wevo's software with SolarEdge's leading PV solution and market presence will enable the accelerated deployment of load-balanced EV charging infrastructure," said Teddy Flatau, CEO of Wevo Energy.
SolarEdge will showcase the new solar-attached C&I EV charging solution and Wevo Energy's software at Intersolar Booth B4. 110. It will initially be launched in Germany and the UK, with plans to expand to other markets quickly.
