SolarEdge introduces solar-attached EV management solution

SolarEdge Technologies has 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 optimises 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 optimises 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 specialising in EV charging optimisation 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,” says 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,” says Teddy Flatau, CEO of Wevo Energy.
