EmotorWerks says it is to expand into Europe and release its JuiceBox Pro 32 EV charging station.

The company has set up its European headquarters in Berlin and offices in London and Paris. The company has also secured certification for its line of smart-grid integrated JuiceBox charging products, which complement Enel's public charge point solutions and fast-charging DC stations already being delivered in Europe.

"We've always held a global vision to serve customers around the world," said eMotorWerks founder & CEO, Valery Miftakhov. "As demand in Europe is booming, increasing our footprint here allows us to ensure grids throughout the continent are primed for the smart-grid charging necessary to take advantage of everything EVs have to offer customers and energy providers.

"Our expansion supports Enel's broader plan for more robust electric vehicle charging infrastructure throughout Europe."

For his part, VP Europe, Sergey Kiselev added: "With our numerous European partnerships, establishing our presence throughout the European market is the next step in assisting energy providers to prepare for the coming wave of EVs.

"As part of global energy provider Enel, our expansion will support European EV growth by providing charging solutions and energy services that adapt to regional energy systems and customer needs."

The JuiceBox charging stations and cloud-connected JuiceNet software platform will deliver smart-grid charging capabilities to European consumers. With the JuiceBox line of smart grid wallboxes, EV drivers will have high-powered charging and smartphone visibility, as well as control of EV charging.

"JuiceBox and JuiceNet are the next generation charging technologies for the EV market, and are already broadly deployed in North America," said Energy Services SVP, Vincent Schachter.

"The progress we have made allows Enel and our partners from the energy and automotive industries to shape EV load demand in response to grid signals, avoid demand spikes, exert greater control over regional EV charging, as well as minimise costly grid upgrades and peak energy acquisition costs."

EMotorWerks' expansion builds on Enel's presence in Europe as a provider of traditional and renewable energy and its presence in the DC fast-charging market and bi-directional vehicle-to-grid charging, with stations already deployed in southern Europe as well as the UK and Romania.

To date, eMotorWerks has deployed nearly 30,000 smart-grid charging stations worldwide into residential, multifamily and public locations through its JuiceBox charging stations.
