EV Connect has announced the general availability of its API platform, unlocking a suite of tools that allow charging providers to develop customized EV networks as well as smart charging and eMobility applications. EV Connect customers can now leverage a flexible, enterprise-scale platform to manage charging stations, maintain brand control, evolve revenue generation, and deploy unique and reliable charging experiences for their drivers, the company says.
The EV Connect platform enables sophistication and scaling through out-of-the-box vehicle integration, OpenADR, load management, industry interoperability, and the ability to design revenue streams to deliver a premium driver experience, the company says.
The modular architecture of the EV Connect platform and API suite allows customers to leverage a backend management console, enabling features such as charger reservations, flexible payment models (e.g., by kWh, time, or parking space), ability to activate OCPI roaming partner integrations, grace periods and other value-added features without months of development time. For example, the company says, for hotels, it means integration with rewards programs and guest apps; for convenient stores, it’s delivering coupons through their app; for oil companies, it’s about integration with ERP systems, financial management, user identity, and payment gateways; for fleet operators, it means integration with energy management, smart building systems, or telematics.
