Hubject is partnering with IoTecha, a company specialising in providing software and hardware solutions to support EV charging infrastructure.

The two companies will simplify the implementation and deployment of Plug&Charge and Smart Charging systems using ISO 15118 for electric vehicles globally.

“Our highest priority is supporting EV adoption,” said Hubject senior director, Business and Corporate Development, Barton Sidles.

“Through the advancement of EV charging technology, together we can help move the eMobility sector forward by providing intelligent and secure solutions.”

IoTecha will utilise Hubject’s systems to issue and sign digital certificates to be installed in IoTecha Combined Charging System on Module (CCSoM) products. Once implemented, EV charging stations using IoTecha CCSoM will offer secure communication to enable Plug&Charge and smart charging.

With smart charging technology enabled by ISO 15118, utilities can work with city planners, major fleet operators, property owners, and local governments to predict and manage the amount of energy entering electric vehicles when charging.

The energy management will help alleviate the strain on the grid caused by the upcoming influx of electric vehicles, reducing the need to create additional expensive infrastructure projects to meet peak demand.

Essentially the technology helps to evaluate how the grid stays balanced by incorporating and regulating a number of dynamic variables. These can include the needs of EV drivers based on what they are willing to pay, duration at charging station, the amount of charge needed and status of the grid (peak demand, etc.)

Additionally, the secure communication components of the ISO 15118 standard protect against an attack on the grid by providing secure communication during a charging session.

“Hubject’s goals align very closely with ours, which makes this technology partnership a natural and logical fit,” added IoTecha CEO & president, Oleg Logvinov.

“The evolution of the grid via smart charging technology is something we are heavily invested in and Hubject’s PKI product and services for ISO 15118 are an essential piece of the puzzle, enabling us to provide our customers with turnkey solutions.”
