German pioneering meets Californian expertise: eMotorWerks and Share&Charge Deliver North America’s First Peer-to-Peer Electric Vehicle Charging Network incorporating Blockchain Technology
SAN FRANCISCO, 11th July 2017 – Thanks to a start-up from the German Ruhr area, this summer Californian charging operators will be able to sell charging facilities to electric car drivers. The German start-up MotionWerk combines its first product Share&Charge with the JuiceNet-enabled Smart Grid EV charging solutions from eMotorWerks from San Francisco. This is the first blockchain peer-to-peer (P2P) charging network for electric vehicles across North America. For the system to work, only two things are needed: the charging stations must be equipped with eMotorWerks JuiceNet Smart Grid technology, and both parties, station owners and electric car drivers, must register on Motionwerk's Share&Charge platform.
