GenCell, E.V. Motors Pure Energy deploy first autonomous hybrid off-grid EV charging stations

Upon completion of GenCell's delivery of the first four off-grid EV charging stations, E.V. Motors Pure Energy orders dozens of additional charging stations to be distributed at key locations across Israel's roadways in a deal valued at some US$5 million.

GenCell Energy, an leading Israel-based manufacturer of fuel cell energy solutions, and E.V. Motors Pure Energy, the EV charging subsidiary of E.V. Motors Ltd., an Israeli importer of electric vehicles, chargers and energy storage systems for electric vehicles and the exclusive Israeli representative of several companies, including developer of energy storage and advanced EV charging systems Sun Surplus Energy and Co. Ltd., announce in accordance with the Cooperation Agreement between the companies, EV Motors Pure Energy will purchase off-grid charging systems based on GenCell's fuel cell and energy storage technology. The charging systems will be implemented at multiple off-grid vehicle charging stations across Israel in a deal valued at some US$ 5 million.

The companies are integrating GenCell's alkaline fuel cells with E.V. Motors Pure Energy's EV charging technologies to enable autonomous off-grid hybrid electric vehicle charging stations that eliminate the need for fossil fuel generators. Following completion of the deployment of the first four stations, including implementation at the site of an EV Motors' existing commercial customer, which will demonstrate the benefits of the technology and attract interest from e-mobility companies around the world, the partners will evaluate and apply insights from the first round of deployments to facilitate the optimized implementation of additional stations that will be distributed widely across the country.

"We at E.V. Motors are committed to eliminating carbon emissions from the automotive industry in Israel by accelerating the transition from fossil fueled to electrically powered vehicles. To realize our mission, we have partnered with GenCell to leverage failsafe, resilient, zero-emission hydrogen and ammonia-to-power fuel cell technologies to ensure a reliable and steady flow of clean power for our charging stations," explains Ohad Seligmann, Chairman, E.V. Motors. "We are very satisfied to see the rapid and efficient progress that the companies have achieved synchronizing E.V. Motors Pure Energy charging equipment with GenCell's off-grid charging systems based on fuel cell power generation and storage technologies and with GenCell's energy management software. The combination offers a unique and comprehensive state-of-the-art solution for autonomous, off-grid, hybrid EV charging that both eliminates emissions and ensures availability of electricity, independent of the power grid. The solution is expected to disrupt the EV charging landscape, first in Israel and subsequently around the world. By investing in reliable, efficient, and emission-free EV charging infrastructure, we both guarantee the highest quality of service for our electric vehicle customers and drive the growth of the EV market."
