BluWave-ai Expands EV Everywhere Commercial Adoption with Smartcar’s Vehicle APIs

June 7, 2023

Solution Intelligently Integrates Direct Communication with Supported EVs for Wide-Scale Onboarding to Grid

BluWave-ai and Smartcar announced an agreement to integrate Smartcar’s vehicle APIs with BluWave-ai’s EV Everywhere. BluWave-ai is a leading provider of artificial intelligence (AI) Software-as-a-Sevice (SaaS) solutions to optimize renewable energy and electric transportation. Smartcar is an API platform that enables developers to integrate software applications and services with vehicles. This collaboration will help accelerate the adoption of EV Everywhere for end-users who charge at multiple locations or use chargers that cannot be actively managed.

About BlueWave-ai EV Everywhere

BluWave-ai EV Everywhere Software-as-a-Service product predicts, detects, optimizes, and controls EV charging to stabilize grid operations, providing real-time congestion management in utilities’ distribution networks. With the EV Everywhere App which is connected to the EV Everywhere SaaS platform, EV drivers are able to connect to the system leveraging Smartcar and participating in utility programs. Utilities and system operators benefit by having a pool of EVs that can collaborate with grid operations while consumers receive incentives.

EV Everywhere is built on the AI energy optimization platform of BluWave-ai which is deployed in utility and smart grid live operations for over 4 years. Smartcar’s vehicle APIs bring integration with leading electric vehicle (EV) brands in the market and provides connectivity services to consumer passenger vehicles. This advances the integration, supporting accelerating mass-market adoption of electric vehicles into electricity distribution grids and presents a solution to the worldwide challenge for distribution utilities to efficiently manage the increased energy demand to customers’ homes for charging electric vehicles.

Smartcar’s APIs are compatible with over 100 EV models across 25 of the top car brands in North America and Europe, and Smartcar continuously adds new models as they become available. All of these will now be accessible from the BluWave-ai EV Everywhere product, in addition to direct OCPP certified enabled chargers worldwide.

EV Everywhere’s initial deployment, announced in 2022 is in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada supported by the Independent Electricity System Operator with the capital city’s utility Hydro Ottawa, where initial rollout with Smartcar vehicle APIs will take place, and subsequently with BluWave-ai’s worldwide utility and system operator customers.

The company’s expertise in grid energy optimization and innovative platform for intelligent EV charging is transforming the way electric vehicle charging is managed. To fully realize this potential, it is essential to have access to the necessary data from the vehicles themselves. This is where Smartcar’s technology comes in. Smartcar provides BluWave-ai with the crucial link to the broad consumer base of EV owners and their vehicles. With Smartcar’s vehicle APIs, BluWave-ai can streamline the process of aggregating data from EVs, and focus on refining their grid energy optimization algorithms, without the need for direct integration with multiple, individual EV charging hardware systems.

This enables BluWave-ai to offer a more comprehensive and streamlined solution for EV charging control to utility companies, enterprises, and electric fleet operators and others. With Smartcar’s help, BluWave-ai can expand the reach of their platform to a wider range of EV owners, leading to greater adoption of EV charging control and a more sustainable future for all.

“We chose Smartcar’s vehicle APIs to augment our EV Everywhere product capabilities, advancing our mission of promoting sustainable energy solutions for the energy and transportation sectors,” said Devashish Paul, CEO, “Their expertise in API integration with the wide-ranging (fleet) of electric vehicles on the road, will help accelerate scaling out our EV Everywhere product line for power utilities and system operators worldwide.”

“Smartcar is proud to bring our vehicle API technology to BluWave-ai EV Everywhere,” said Sahas Katta, CEO of Smartcar, “We believe that this partnership will accelerate the integration of EVs into the smart grid, enabling more efficient, and sustainable energy management.”

Enhancing BluWave-ai EV Everywhere with Smartcar vehicle APIs represents a significant step forward in the evolution of energy grid optimization and electric vehicle integration. Leveraging advanced technology and expertise from both companies, makes it easier for consumers to adopt EVs, and for utilities and grid operators to manage the integration of EVs into the grid.

BluWave-ai EV Everywhere is available bundled with the BluWave-ai Edge and Center products to interested utilities and system operators who want to prepare for the market penetration of a large number of EVs. Please contact for further consultation and deployment with our technical team.
