EcoG is the monetization engine and open API-layer for public electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure. Currently, EV chargers are expensive and energy transfer alone does not finance them. However, recent OEM announcements have made it clear that EVs are coming. Therefore, although currently not a sufficient availability of public EV charging stations exists, it is vital that the necessary charging infrastructure is developed in the near future to power these vehicles. Every charge can be leveraged by a value-added service which significantly increases the revenue.
EcoG consists of the EcoG control stack, the EcoG APIs, the EcoG software development kit, the EcoG backend. Charging hardware and electric vehicles are not part of the EcoG offering but are an essential part of the pilot setup.
With EcoG’s software stack, EV charging is enabling brick & mortar businesses, fleet operators, cities and utilities to monetize the infrastructure beyond the pure energy transfer, allowing the growth of EV charging infrastructure.
EcoG has developed, licensed, and patented an IoT software stack embedded on EV charging stations such that the infrastructure, the vehicle, the user, and the property owner are connected. This stack has open API capabilities, allowing 3rd parties to develop value-add services and create an ecosystem of applications to integrate the charging of EVs in today’s businesses and daily life.
As charging station operators, utilities, OEMs, and brick & mortar businesses use the software to customize, influence, and measure EV users’ charging and purchasing patterns, business and data analytics solutions as diverse as those of the modern iPhone are possible.
The verticals and areas of application are manifold. Currently, there are six under exploration through pilot or project leads: Charge point operation, utility, shopping mall, car sharing, ride-sharing, public transportation fleet, charging hardware manufacturer.
