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 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. Built on advanced AI-based predictive algorithms, the solution incorporates real-time data analytics and considers solar production, dynamic electricity prices and tiered charging schedules. By integrating seamlessly with SolarEdge’s energy management system, this new offering orchestrates and optimizes interactions between facility solar generation, stationary battery storage and large-scale EV charging, taking into account grid and infrastructure limitations.
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.
