Greenbox and Staex to Build Secure and Reliable Mobile Charging Infrastructure of the Future
The European-wide network will enable EV charging and hydrogen fueling with a green completely off-grid solution
(Berlin, Germany) - The expansion of EV charging and hydrogen fueling infrastructure lags behind demand. In view of the sharp rise of climate-friendly vehicles this trend will continue to intensify in the coming years. Reasons among others are cost- and time intensive approval processes, construction measures, delivery bottlenecks and resulting investment risks. With regard to hyperchargers it is foreseeable that a location-based overload of the power grid will pose an additional problem. Greenbox solves these problems by operating a system of hyperchargers (Green Electricity) and green H2 fueling stations which are supplied with mobile storage systems from local green energy sources instead of being connected to the grid. Staex provides secure and stable connectivity for these devices over unreliable networks. "We are thrilled to work with Staex to bring our hyperchargers and H2 fueling stations to even more clients ranging from fueling stations to retailers," said Dr. Henning Heppner, Founder and CEO of Greenbox. "Staex’s expertise in secure and stable connectivity will ensure that our customers can rely on our service, even in areas with unreliable networks."
Staex CEO, Dr. Alexandra Mikityuk, added, “As the world becomes increasingly dependent on machines’ infrastructure, it is crucial that we have a secure and reliable energy charging infrastructure in place. We are excited to be working with Greenbox to make EV charging and H2 fueling accessible to more people, no matter where they are. We are also working to ensure that the solution can be easily integrated into existing systems, making it a cost-effective option for organizations looking to upgrade their green infrastructure.”
The partnership between Greenbox and Staex is a significant step forward. Together they are building secure, reliable, and distributed mobile EV charging as well as green hydrogen infrastructure and making it accessible and convenient for everyone. The infrastructure will enable capabilities like on-demand charging for autonomous vehicles, remote monitoring and management of charging stations, and integration with smart grid systems. These capabilities will bring Industry 4.0 closer to reality by enabling more efficient use of energy resources and supporting the growth of connected, autonomous transportation systems.
The companies are currently in the midst of the development to have an off-grid green fueling solution available for commercial use in 2023.
