EV charging and distributed energy sources meet in the cloud
EV charging solution provider eMotorWerks has incorporated OSIsoft’s PI System within its cloud-based Smart[Grid] charging platform. The collaboration aims to streamline data flows between EV charging networks and providers of energy resources on the grid.
OSIsoft’s PI System aggregates data from electrical utilities, Independent Service Operators (ISOs) and Regional Transmission Operators (RTOs), while eMotorWerks’ JuiceNet platform provides sensor-based data from its network of JuiceBox charging stations. Together, the companies offer an overview of charging loads and real-time grid conditions.
