The partnership between AeroVironment and eMotorWerks provides a smart-charging solution to customers and utilities. JuiceNet - smart-grid charging platform integrated with AeroVironment’s charging stations - predicts when to charge for maximum efficiency. Electric vehicle owners can set the time when they need the car charged in the morning and this way avoid charging at times with peak electricity demand which usually happens in the evenings.
JuiceNet also offers an opportunity for utilities by integrating with their resources and offering demand response. When electricity usage is at its high, the utility can tell JuiceNet to reduce EV charging.
