Increased reliability and lower costs

The EVauto®platform is designed to save you money by reducing your electric vehicle charging costs 24/7/365 without sacrificing the flexibility to adapt to your specific electric vehicle fleet operations. We know that not every business, government, or educational institution that operates an electric vehicle fleet uses their electric vehicles in the same way or for the same purposes, or at the same time of day.  We know some fleets may consist of only a few vehicles and others may have dozens or hundreds.  Every electric vehicle fleet operator has different needs, and the EVauto electric fleet charging control is designed to adapt to and support all your electric fleet needs.

EVauto Features

Energy cost savings

Energy Cost
Savings

EVauto’s patented algorithm enables customers to reduce their cost for electricity. Once you set-up the EVauto platform, it works 24/7 to minimize the cost of charging your electric fleet by shifting your electricity consumption to lower-cost times of day and managing your electric consumption to lower your peak power usage (aka “demand”). EVauto also gives you the ability to automatically take advantage of utility demand response (DR) programs that pay you to lower usage during peak consumption periods. When your charging window allows it, EVauto can even halt charging temporarily until lower electricity rates take effect.

Green Energy Charging

Charging

EVauto can optimize multiple sources of electricity. The EVauto platform can be configured to match charging to the output of your solar array, onsite batteries, or a contracted amount of renewable energy purchased over the utility’s grid to optimize your fleet charging costs and minimize your carbon footprint.

Enhanced reliability

Reliabilty

An internet outage is bad. An internet outage which disrupts the charging of your electric vehicle fleet is even worse. Because the EVauto charging control system includes an onsite controller, your electric fleet charging system keeps running even when your internet connection goes down, providing a level of dependability cloud-based platforms cannot deliver.

EMS integration

Integration

Some companies prefer to manage their electric fleet electricity consumption as a standalone operation. Other companies prefer a more holistic approach. The EVauto platform can integrate with other facility power management systems to create a comprehensive power management control solution.

Dashboard

Some electric vehicle fleet managers like to get buried in the details; others just want to see the big picture. With the EVauto platform’s customizable dashboard, you can display only the data you want to see. You can set your dashboard to display macro-level fleet charging information or get as detailed as you want, down to the level of each individual charger or vehicle in your fleet.

Range

EVauto software maximizes the range you get from each charge – and does it automatically. When an EV battery gets too hot or too cold, its charge capacity shrinks. When capacity is reduced, the range you get out of that charge is also reduced. That’s why EV battery packs include heating and cooling systems. These kick in when needed to modulate battery temperature, and they do so by drawing on the battery’s charge. Using part of the charge to maintain optimal battery temperature means less charge and less range is available to you. That’s why EVauto software throttles down the rate of charging as your EV battery approaches the end of the power cycle, lowering the power level to a point where it maintains the ideal battery temperature. Because the power needed to condition the battery is being provided by the charger instead of drawing from the charged battery, the battery retains its full charge, giving you the maximum possible range when you unplug and begin driving.

Microgrid Support

Microgrid
Support

EVauto software works with every microgrid system regardless of the communications protocol used – whether it’s Modbus, BACnet, or another protocol. This allows your EVauto CMS to control all of the charging depots serviced by your microgrid, automatically allocating power to ensure all your charging needs are met while minimizing optimizing electricity consumption and power costs across the microgrid.

automatic charging alert

Automatic Charging
Issues Alert

The EVauto platform is designed to keep your electric fleet charging operations running smoothly, efficiently and at the lowest possible cost. And yet there are times when everything doesn’t run smoothly. If an electric vehicle is not correctly connected or is not charging correctly, the EVauto platform will send you a real-time notification. If there is a hardware malfunction with one of your chargers, the EVauto platform will send you a real-time notification, no matter where you are, no matter when it happens. You can configure the EVauto platform to send e-mails or texts or trigger visual alerts or alarms when a charging issue arises.

multiple security configurations

Multiple Security
Configurations

Some electric vehicle fleet operators are comfortable managing their electric fleets entirely from a cloud-based control system. Others require the added security of a closed onsite control system, reducing the risk of someone hacking your fleet charging infrastructure. EVauto can do both so you can manage your electric fleet charging either way, letting you choose the level of security and reliability you need.

automatic weather adjustments

Automatic Weather
Adjustments

During periods of extreme heat or extreme cold, charging your electric fleet can take longer than normal. EVauto can be configured to adjust your charging activity during periods of extreme weather so your fleet charging continues at the optimal levels possible without resetting your peak load.

Extend Battery Life

Life

Over time, fast charging shortens the life of your EV battery. Sometimes you have no choice: you have to fast charge to meet deadlines or minimize downtime. For all those other times, EVauto software automatically reduces charging speed to an optimal level that optimizes the life of your EV battery, reduces energy costs and has your EV fleet ready when you need it. When fast charging is your only option, EVauto software reduces the power level at the beginning and end of the charging cycle to reduce wear on the vehicle’s battery.

Any EV

There are a lot of different chargers on the market. With EVauto it doesn’t matter which charger you use. The EVauto platform is charger agnostic. It can support any charger your facility is using, which means as your electric fleet operations grow and you add chargers, you won’t need to replace your electric fleet charging control platform, regardless of the type of chargers you add. And because EVauto doesn’t rely on vehicle telematic data, the platform can support charging for your electric fleet vehicles, your customers’ and employees’ electric vehicles and electric vehicles from your company’s other locations.

We know that there may be many people at different levels of your organization who want to monitor your electric vehicle fleet operations and costs. Not everyone will have the same level of technical expertise, which is why the EVauto platform is designed to present your fleet charging data in an easy-to-understand, easy-to-analyze format.
