GreenLots, a global provider of EV charging software and solutions, announced last week, that you will work together with Volvo Trucks in the future. The aim is to develop charging infrastructure for e-vehicles operated in warehouses in Southern California. This is the first high-performance fleet charging project that has emerged from a public-private partnership with the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

Was awarded $ 44.8 million from carb to the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) for Volvo Low Impact Green Heavy Transport Solutions (Lights) Project. As part of this project, GreenLots will equip the warehouses with heavy and light loading infrastructure that integrate chargers into the Solar PV and energy storage systems on-site and use GreenLots’s charge network management software to recharge the first electric trucks from Volvo in North America be able to.

As already mentioned, all Chargers of the project are operated on the company software platform SKY ™ from GreenLots to enable a seamless management of the fleet, charging stations and the Volvo energy storage systems. The Connectivity System of Volvo Trucks is also integrated to give truck servers a comprehensive overview of the operating and tailoring of their vehicles.

“The advantages of electrifying medium and heavy duty fleets are enormous, but also the energy requirement for loading these large vehicles. Our industry-leading solution offers fleet owners the lowest total cost of ownerships by controlling energy consumption to avoid high power bills, and the network operators provide the necessary tools to safely integrate electric vehicles and renewable energies into the network.”- Brett Hauser, CEO of GreenLots

In addition to GreenLots, further companies will participate in the project. Thus, among others, ABB and other charging stations manufacturers are integrated to provide the charging stations while Burns & McDonnell supports the planning, design and installation of the new EV charging stations. The project will be one of the first in North America, which demonstrates a new charging standard for heavy commercial vehicles, SAE J3068, in real applications.

“This is an excellent opportunity to show the end-to-end potential of electrification. From solar energy production to our customers via the operating time of electric vehicles to the possible second usage of batteries, this project will provide valuable experiences and data for the entire value chain.”- Peter Voorhoeve, President of Volvo Trucks North America
