Elocity Technology committed to helping electricity utilities speed electric vehicle adoption and expand the low carbon economy is selected by the Canadian Technology Accelerator

Wednesday, September 16th 2020 3:32:38pm

(Toronto, Canada September 16, 2020) Elocity Technology (https://elocitytech.com/) has secured a coveted position as a member of the Canadian Technology Accelerators - Accélerateurs Technologiques Canadiens (CTA) 9th annual cleantech intake. Starting immediately, Elocity will participate in the fully virtual CTA program to support their market entry into leading USA cleantech hubs.

Don Huff, Chair of Elocity's Global Advisory Board stated, "Selection by CTA is a huge vote of confidence for our flagship HIEVPlug that enables electrical utilities and cities to advance electric vehicle (EV) charging and the low carbon economy. The CTA will increase Elocity's ability to engage with power utilities, electromobility players and investors in the United States. Elocity is the emerging leader in EV management and charger software technology."

Elocity's technology allows electric utilities to support the growing numbers of EVs, while ensuring grid stability and minimizing need for new infrastructure investments.

Speaking from Dallas Texas, automotive industry executive, entrepreneur and Elocity investor Vic Keller observed, "Informed investors will understand the value of Elocity's services to the future of EVs. It is a way for power utilities to cost-effectively manage the demand of increased EV charging levels and loads. Elocity moves EV charging from a demand capacity problem into a grid management tool. This removes a persistent barrier to rapid EV adoption."

"Compatible with any EV charger, the HIEVPlug is an easy to install data node for a utility. The integrated mobile app improves the EV user experience," stated Mr. Huff. He noted, "Elocity's AI and IoT technology mesh with a secure blockchain based in a feature-rich smart charging platform. A key attribute for utilities is the load factor prediction capability, which contributes to grid resilience and cost management success."



Elocity COO, Arvind Kumar concluded, "The Elocity team is honoured to have been selected and is excited to begin working with The Canadian Technology Accelerators. With CTA's guidance, Elocity will continue to speed the transition towards a low carbon economy by making EV adoption affordable, quick and sustainable for utilities and users."
