National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Program Key Takeaways and Requirements✕
On August 7, 2020, the California Energy Commission released a Grant Solicitation and Application Package titled “BESTFIT Innovative Charging Solutions” under the Clean Transportation Program. This competitive grant solicitation offered to fund projects that demonstrate transformative technology solutions and work to accelerate the successful commercial deployment of electric vehicle (EV) charging for both light, medium, and heavy-duty applications. Eneridge won this grant in 2021 by demonstrating that the “Boost Charger™”, a battery-integrated ultra-fast charger by FreeWire Technologies, is a technically and economically viable solution for the mass deployment of public ultrafast charging stations without significant grid impact or changes to existing electrical infrastructure.
Boost Charger can be installed without significant infrastructure modification, retrofits efficiently to existing chargers (including Level 1 and Level 2 chargers), and contains lower installation costs and demand charges compared to conventional fast-charging stations. Moreover, Eneridge’s complete line of EV charging systems differentiates it from its competitors. Eneridge not only provides a total solution for EV charging to its clients, but also owns and operates its EV charging stations — Eneridge performs project development, provides users with a cloud-based platform, installs, and maintains the chargers, and provides carbon credit trading service. For Eneridge’s initiation of the innovative battery-integrated ultra-fast charger into the EV charging market, as well as its smart business model, Eneridge was selected by the Commission to disperse Boost Chargers throughout Southern California.
