Holding the V2G technology in its grasps, Nuvve and Switch have joined forces to integrate Nuvve’s vehicle-to-grid (V2G) GIVeTM platform with Switch’s charging management platform for operations and maintenance (O&M).
This integration between two best-in-class electric vehicles (EV) and charging software companies will improve interoperability among critical electrified transportation components: charging stations, EVs, and the grid.
“Combining Nuvve’s technology with the Switch platform will enable our current users to add the world’s leading energy management solution while optimizing fleet performance and increasing V2G adoption – thus reducing the total cost of electric vehicle ownership,” said Marc Mültin, founder and CEO at Switch. “We aim to make charging infrastructure software platforms work together seamlessly.”
“Building on years of fruitful collaboration, our partnership with Switch will allow remote monitoring and management of EV chargers through Switch’s platform. Any issue detected can be handled through automated processes before users even realize their occurrence,” said Hamza Lemsaddek, Director of embedded solutions at Nuvve. “Together, a turnkey EV infrastructure management solution is born.”
“Rather than establishing charging station partnerships alone, we now have a way to coordinate efforts with a vertically-integrated EV technology solution through Switch,” said Gregory Poilasne, co-founder and CEO of Nuvve. “This new partnership will help expedite the integration of Nuvve’s patented V2G software into more charging systems around the world as an additional avenue to increase our megawatts under management.”
“With Nuvve’s strategic investment, Switch has completed its initial fundraising objectives. Other investors have included Link Capital of Norway, two family offices and private individuals,” added Mültin.
The strategic partnership will allow the global transportation industry to intelligently make the switch to EVs by combining Nuvve V2G expertise in energy management for vehicles, fleets, connected buildings, and grid services with Switch’s EV charging platform.
The combination is intended to achieve greater efficiencies, interoperability, and a seamless customer experience. Standardizing operating languages of critical software solutions is a precedent for best-in-class platform offerings across the industry.
When Nuvve’s platform is combined with the Switch platform, charge point operators (CPOs) will experience improved interoperability with the seamless combination of energy aggregation management, remote diagnostics, troubleshooting and predictive maintenance all on a single operating system.
