SolarEdge Acquires Wevo Energy, EV Charging Optimization and Management Software Startup

Wevo is a software startup specializing in EV charging optimization and management for sites with large quantities of EV chargers such as apartment buildings, workplace carparks and public charging locations.

SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. ("SolarEdge") (NASDAQ: SEDG), a global leader in smart energy technology, today announced that it completed the acquisition of the entire share capital of Wevo Energy Ltd. ("Wevo"). Wevo is a software startup specializing in EV charging optimization and management for sites with large quantities of EV chargers such as apartment buildings, workplace carparks and public charging locations.


Wevo's software is designed to be vendor agnostic and supports industry leading open protocols, enabling multi-user pricing and billing, tiered prioritization of charging schedules, predictive load management, and a range of additional services. To date, Wevo has electrified many thousands of parking spaces across North America, Europe and the Middle East. Wevo is already integrated with SolarEdge's EV chargers, solar inverters and meters, for a holistic real-time view of solar production, grid consumption and EV charging.

The Wevo solution will also be part of the SolarEdge ONE energy optimization system for the Commercial and Industrial (C&I) segment, designed to offer SolarEdge customers a single energy optimization solution that orchestrates and integrates between on-site solar generation, battery storage and large-scale EV charging.

Zvi Lando, CEO, SolarEdge Technologies, said: "This acquisition represents the continuation of SolarEdge's strategy to enhance its software portfolio for the C&I segment. We are excited for Wevo to join the SolarEdge team following our initial investment and the impressive progress it has demonstrated over the past year. As the EV market continues to grow, distributed renewable energy will be key to unlocking the full potential of the electrification of mobility. Wevo's software capabilities and know-how represent a building block for EV-attached solar, and today it becomes a part of SolarEdge's energy ecosystem."

Teddy Flatau, CEO, Wevo Energy, said: "Wevo's mission is to make EV charging accessible by electrifying every parking space. As a subsidiary of SolarEdge, we will be able to develop a combined solution, offering a seamless experience for EV drivers by optimizing charging with clean, solar-powered energy and maximizing cost savings. This will allow a significant step forward to achieving a low-carbon future."

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
