BC Hydro Debuts Canada’s First Fast Charger Network, Selects Greenlots SKY™ to Manage

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31, 2013 /NEWS.GNOM.ES/ — Greenlots, a global provider of open standards-based technology solutions for electric vehicle (EV) networks, today announced that its SKY network management solution has been selected by BC Hydro (BCH) to manage a provincial network of DC Fast Chargers (DCFC). The initial rollout will include 13 DCFC supplied by electrical power equipment manufacturers ABB and Eaton.

By utilizing Greenlots’ SKY, BCH is leveraging an open standards platform that ensures best-in-class services for site hosts such as access control and pricing, while enabling multiple payment options for EV drivers, all without requiring a subscription to utilize the charge station.

“The deployment of Canada’s first Fast Charger network is a key enabler for the adoption of electric vehicles in B.C. The installation of more charging locations with faster charging rates will allow greater freedom for EV owners and enable inter-urban travel. The network is also running on an open standards platform that ensures flexibility for future growth and for changes in technology,” said Kip Morison, chief technology officer with BC Hydro. “The deployment of this infrastructure brings British Columbia to the forefront of EV adoption in North America.”

The DC Fast Charger Project, announced in January 2013, was funded by the provincial government under the Clean Energy Vehicle Program to provide electric vehicle owners across British Columbia with an accessible network of charging options. To date, 13 B.C. communities have agreed to serve as site hosts and charging station operators for the DC Fast Chargers.
