Yesterday, Microsoft and ABB announced the launch of a new electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging services platform. The platform combines ABB’s EV fast-charging stations with Microsoft Azure cloud-based services. The new platform will ensure stability, global scalability and advanced management features for ABB customers and more advanced charging stations for EV drivers.
“Platform performance and stability are critical differentiators for the successful operation of a modern, data-dependent EV charging station. By partnering with Microsoft, ABB will be able to offer best-in-class operations as well as innovative advanced services — what we call the Internet of Things, Services and People,” said Pekka Tiitinen, president of ABB’s Discrete Automation and Motion Division. “This partnership gives us the solutions, scalability and global agility to support expanding demand for EV charging infrastructure in the world’s major automotive markets, which is a key focus of our Next Level growth strategy.”
