Schneider Electric unveils EcoStruxure for e-mobility, EVC solutions
Schneider Electric has announced the launch of a new EV charging solution for efficient, resilient, and sustainable electric mobility and net-zero buildings.
To achieve a net-zero future, Schneider Electric recognizes the importance of buildings in the electrification of transportation. It is predicted that around 70 percent of EV charging will happen in commercial, industrial, and multifamily buildings by 2030, according to Bloomberg.
With this launch, Schneider Electric continues its pursuit to make buildings smarter and sustainable overall by adding EV charging infrastructure in the facilities.
"As EVs take hold of the car market, buildings will take on a larger share of the burden. When EVs become the dominant mode of transportation, people won't be stopping to charge; they'll charge where they stop. We will charge at home and also at destinations like offices, shops, restaurants, parking garages, schools, hospitals, movie theaters, etc.," said Mike Doucleff, Head of eMobility Business.
Combing all end-to-end solutions means that Schneider Electric is offering reliable and energy-efficient technology for implementing EV charging infrastructure in commercial, industrial, and residential buildings.
EcoStruxure for eMobility provides more than just EV chargers, it is an end-to-end connected solution that is easy to install, maintains building power reliability, and provides a convenient experience for EV drivers.
EcoStruxure for eMobility includes three main elements:
- EVlink Pro AC is a reliable, sustainable, and connected charger that is fast to install, easy to operate and maintain, as well as great for minimizing costs and downtime.
- EcoStruxure EV Charging Expert is an on-site load management system that dynamically distributes real-time available power in the building to charge EVs, avoiding peak hours and integrating renewable energy. Via subscription also ensures access to advanced analytics services.
- And finally, EcoStruxure EV Advisor is a cloud-based operations software that will enable partners to supervise remotely and easily commission, monitor, and control the EV charging infrastructure. This will be launched later in the year.
Over the years since beginning the journey into the electrification of vehicles, Schneider Electric's main aim has been to deliver solutions to solve customers' challenges when it comes to adopting EV charging infrastructure.
