The U.S. Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (Joint Office) will use LF Energy’s EVerest project to build an open source reference implementation for electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. EVerest is an open source project with the goal of developing and maintaining an open source software stack for EV charging stations. It is a modular framework for EV charging, consisting of multiple modules which can be configured and customized for any necessary use case. EVerest manages communications around energy between the car, local energy generation, batteries, adjacent chargers, power grids, cloud backend and payment systems, and the user, including on a mobile phone. EVerest was originated by PIONIX GmbH and contributed to LF Energy in early 2022.
This webinar will discuss how the collaborative development model offered by open source and the neutral governance structure provided by LF Energy will speed the adoption of EVs and decarbonization of transportation in the United States compared to relying on proprietary technologies by:
Enabling development and deployment to happen at an accelerated rate
Increasing customizability for different use cases
Offering long-term maintainability
Avoiding vendor-lock in while enabling a commercial support ecosystem
