Switch and chargebyte Make EV Infrastructure More Cost-Effective and Easier to Maintain

24 Jan 2023

Switch and chargebyte partner to offer Josev Professional, a unified operating system for EV chargers, preconfigured on chargebyte’s “Charge Control C” controllers. The partnership marks the beginning of an embedded software solution that allows access to advanced next-generation capabilities for the mass market. Electric vehicle charger manufacturers can now offer AC and DC bi-directional charging solutions more easily and with a quick route to market. It also brings additional user-convenience for EV drivers through Plug & Charge support and financial benefits to EV charging networks.

A preconfigured charge controller with Josev Professional accelerates EV charge point manufacturers’ go to market and reduces their costs by eliminating the complexity of implementing the latest industry-approved communication standards and protocols like ISO 15118-2/-20 and OCPP 2.0.1. The software is plug-and-play ready and requires minimal integration effort thanks to Switch’s well defined API. It brings an array of next-generation capabilities to charger OEMs, EV charging networks and drivers.

Thanks to this collaboration, charging networks can be easily upgraded and future-proofed with the most convenient user experience for charging and billing (Plug & Charge). End-customers can achieve energy self-sufficiency at home by turning their EVs into “power banks on wheels”’. Businesses can finally monetise energy storage capacities and cut costs on energy bills through energy transfer back to their industry plants or offices when market prices peak.

With infrastructure that is capable of bi-directional power transfer, vehicle-to-building (V2B) and vehicle-to-home (V2H) use cases are promising business opportunities to diversify your revenue portfolio at scale. Consequently, hardware capable of V2B and V2H applications is in high demand.

2023 is set to be the tipping point for V2H, V2B and vehicle-to-grid (V2G). In Bloomberg’s Zero-Emissions Vehicle Factbook, published in November 2022, 11 car manufacturers have announced plans to launch 14 car models capable of this new technology (source: BloombergNEF). Industry trailblazers like Nuvve and Switch are paving the way for automakers to enable innovative V2G projects across Europe by 2023 already.
