JET Charge, Australia’s leading specialist in electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, is developing smart charging hardware that will reduce the cost of smart and connected charging stations and make them more user friendly.
JET Charge is deploying its proprietary smart charging technology under a services-based model that will ensure that EV charging occurs when the electricity grid can best support it. The technology also has the potential to match EV charging to times when renewable power penetration into the grid is at its highest.
JET Charge is leading a generational change in the automotive landscape in Australia and working to become a global leader in charging infrastructure integration, demonstrating how EV charging needs can be balanced with renewables, stationary storage and an ever-changing electricity grid.
