Siemens Energy Inc. and Coulomb Technologies Inc. have signed a joint marketing agreement for an electric vehicle (EV) product offering, including EV supply equipment technology and charging infrastructure.
The companies note that the agreement will allow Siemens to offer utilities, electric retailers, municipalities and EV suppliers the ability to monitor, bill and clear financial transactions for EV infrastructure market participants. Coulomb's ChargePoint Network system complements Siemens' offerings by supporting asset management, charging/session events and two-way demand response programs.
‘Electric vehicle infrastructure, within the smart grid, is a critical enabling technology that will allow electrical vehicle technology to reach its full potential,’ says Paul A. Camuti, Siemens Energy's president for U.S. smart grid applications.
‘Siemens meter data management solutions and the ability to integrate EV supply equipment solutions into the customer's IT platforms leverages our communication and networking software to deliver a higher-level value proposition to our common customer base,’ adds Richard Lowenthal, CEO of Coulomb Technologies.
