EV Charging Minimizes Greenhouse Gas Emissions

June 28, 2015 by Jeff Shepard

eMotorWerks and WattTime, a new environmental nonprofit specializing in clean energy software, announced today the launch of JuiceBox Green 40. This collaboration produced a smart EV charging station capable of automatically reducing the carbon footprint of EV charging through groundbreaking new environmentally smart timing algorithms. EV drivers can now use the WattTime enabled JuiceBox Green 40 to ensure the lowest possible greenhouse gas emissions from their vehicle.

WattTime's software automatically analyzes the local power grid in real time to identify moments when charging the EV would only draw power from particularly clean power plants from renewables to highly efficient power plants and JuiceBox adjusts EV charging schedules to draw only on the cleanest power sources available.

"We are thrilled to offer the cleanest charging EVSE ever produced," stated eMotorWerks founder & CEO Valery Miftakhov. "After developing the most advanced and efficient charging solutions for electric vehicles it was a natural progression to also develop the cleanest. EV drivers now have even greater choice and control over how they charge."

JuiceBox Green 40 not only charges an EV faster than most EVSEs on the market, it is the only EVSE that helps to ensure the cleanest charge. Combined with the power of JuiceNet, which prioritizes time and rate of charge based on user configured profiles, the EV owner simply plugs their EV into their JuiceBox Green 40 knowing the system will do the rest. This latest version of JuiceBox highlights the ultimate flexibility of eMotorWerks' cloud based EV Charging platform, JuiceNet, by integrating with WattTime. JuiceNet introduces the concept of software based charging profiles that can be seamlessly applied to JuiceBox stations.

"EVs have always held the promise of a cleaner energy future, but they are only as clean as the electricity they use. So we are delighted that thanks to the forward looking leadership of one EV charging station manufacturer, eMotorWerks, EV drivers everywhere now have the choice to automatically run their car strictly on the cleanest possible sources on their own local power grid," says Gavin McCormick, Cofounder and Executive Director of WattTime.
