Hubject and Greenlots to bring App Free and Card Free charging to EV drivers

Customers with new, Plug&Charge-enabled vehicles will no longer need to worry about using an app or card to pay for their charge. This achievement is the result of a partnership between Hubject and Greenlots, a US-based leader in EV charging and energy management software and solutions and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Shell New Energies.

With Hubject's Plug&Charge ecosystem and public key infrastructure, Greenlots' SKY network will be capable of securely authenticating and authorising EV charging simply by plugging into the vehicle. This technology has the potential to render RFID card and app-based payment systems obsolete within the next few years, making EV charging simpler and more accessible than pumping gas.

“Our expertise in Plug&Charge implementation has been developed over the last several years and Greenlots recognised our ability to provide them with the most advanced solution to enhance their customers' EV charging experience,” said Paul Glenney, North American CEO of Hubject. “Through partnerships with industry leaders like Greenlots, we're able to make charging more convenient than ever, a key factor in increasing EV adoption and reducing carbon emissions.”

Customer privacy and safety are key components of this system, which is why it has been endorsed by nearly all major automakers. The secure digital communication of the Plug&Charge system gives peace of mind to both new players in the connected mobility industry and drivers alike.

“We're always on the lookout for harmonious technologies that make EV charging faster, easier and more accessible for drivers,” said Harmeet Singh, CTO of Greenlots. “We're very proud that we will be one of the first EV charging platforms in the U.S. to offer the most convenient charging experience. Making charging as simple as pumping gas is essential now that more and more drivers are switching to electric vehicles.”

With the enablement of the ISO 15118 protocol, Greenlots will provide network operators a greater level of management and increased energy and cost efficiencies. Smart charging benefits multiple stakeholders, including utility companies and fleet owners, as it securely connects vehicles to infrastructure.
