Case Study

EV Charging Platform

Industry: Energy

Description

EV charging network for fast and easy access to charging stations.
It has been developed having three levels of application: mobile application and private office - for end users, owners of electric cars; backoffice - for partners, who own charging stations ; supreme office - for owners of the whole system.

Challenges

  • Develop durable platform architecture from scratch to be able to serve millions of users
  • Give ability for EV owners to reserve time slots for charging and to be sure that EV station will be available at this time
  • Connectivity for HORECA businesses
  • Bind together known charge point protocols and synchronize them to single control server

Approach

In order to control all reservations the Embrox Team has created separate independent que server, which collects requests, puts them in que and turns on/off charging points. The additional system was also developed for updating charging stations availability. For end users convenience EV stations are presented in different ways: on the map, as a list, separated by categories. Also users can filter stations when they want to find the most suitable option for them. To be able to cover all known EV protocols, the Team has developed all version of OCPP servers from scratch. Also,in order to be open and flexible to 3rd party partners, the development team has implemented OCPI protocol which allows to control charging points from the external world. For business that owns charger stations, the powerful dashboard tool was developed. It represents a web application for managing, controlling access for stations, reviewing analytical information and handling their billing data about charging transactions.

Key features

  • SAAS solution for partners
  • Multiplatform mobile applications
  • Super power CMS for owners of the business
  • Big data analysis with artificial intelligence
  • Server solution for controlling charger station’s work

Results

The Embrox developed scalable system, that binds together all users and businesses in one ecosystem.
As a result, platform integrates more than 12,000 EV stations across the world and this number is growing.
Mobile applications help EV drivers build their directions through available charging stations within the minimum time expenses. At this time platform’s partners can propose some of their additional services and attract new customers. The ecosystem is growing up from user’s and partners perspective of views.
