Heliox enters V2X partnership with Fermata Energy
The charging system manufacturer Heliox has entered into the vehicle-to-everything (V2X), smart energy management business through a newly formed partnership with Fermata Energy. At the same time, Heliox has announced a new 20kW bidirectional V2X charger.
The new charger will exclusively be available in the U.S. market, launching later this year through the partnership with Fermata Energy. The partnership was also rung in with an equity investment my Waterland Private Equity, which is the parent company of Heliox. Fermata Energy managed to secure a North American safety Standard UL 9741 for their charging technology last year, which covers V2X equipment.
According to the two partnering companies, the cooperation will “accelerate how EV operators can use parked electric vehicles to provide energy management services during peak times and lower energy costs at home or in the workplace”. They hope to leverage Fermata Energy’s V2X technology and Heliox’s state-of-the-art bidirectional chargers.”
