Heliox & Recoy integrate energy prices into V2X smart charging
Heliox has teamed up with Recoy to integrate its ‘Real-time Optimisation Platform’ into its fast-charging equipment. Recoy’s platform considers energy prices in real-time and helps optimise flexible assets such as electric vehicles, stationary batteries, e-boilers and electrolysers.
The companies expect the new partnership to accelerate growth toward intelligent energy solutions. Michael Colijn, Group CEO of Heliox, explained that Recoy’s “knowledge of energy flexibility and software-driven smart-charging solutions will allow us to unlock maximum value for our customers in today’s volatile price environment.”
As for Recoy, Managing Director Robert Kleiburg, said, “Through this strategic alliance, Recoy will be part of a strong portfolio of DC charging infrastructure and stationary storage that we can optimise to unlock value for our customers.”
In the coming months, the partners will identify tangible next steps and innovations in reducing the strain on national grids through intelligent charging and energy management.
Heliox has been in the DC charging space since 2009 and offers advanced V2X capable smart charging solutions across entire depots or ports. In 2017, the company installed one of Europe’s first and largest rapid charging networks for the e-bus fleet in the Dutch town of Eindhoven. Helios has since recreated similar models in Den Bosch, Netherlands, Glasgow, Scotland and Montgomery County, Maryland, USA.
Recent steps have seen Heliox move into the electric car charging market. The partnership with Recoy will help the company fine-tune the vehicle-to-x offerings by taking into account energy prices.
