Lynkwell delivers a seamless charging experience for its customers through integration with Hubject's intercharge roaming platform and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) enabling ISO 15118-2 Plug and Charge.

SCHENECTADY, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 6, 2024 / Lynkwell, a vertically integrated provider of e-mobility solutions, and Hubject, a global leader in the e-mobility sector, have joined forces in a strategic partnership to add roaming and Plug & Charge capabilities to Lynkwell's electric vehicle (EV) charging platform.

The burgeoning demand for EV chargers has attracted many companies into the industry, but this has produced fragmentation that hinders the long-term scalability of EV infrastructure. The result is drivers who encounter obstacles when attempting to access chargers on different networks, often requiring additional steps like downloading new apps or establishing new payment methods. Such disconnect not only frustrates EV drivers but also presents a significant barrier to scale for businesses reliant on EV charging solutions.

By integrating with Hubject's intercharge eRoaming platform, drivers will gain full interoperability for thousands of Lynkwell chargers across North America. In turn, Lynkwell's customers can connect to the world's largest eRoaming network, allowing their customers to access and pay for charging at compatible stations throughout the country under a single agreement.

The adoption of vehicle-based authentication for EV charging presents a secure and user-friendly alternative to traditional app-based or credit card terminal-driven session initiation. By adhering to the ISO 15118-2 standard, the Hubject Plug & Charge solution automates the authentication process, enabling secure communication between electric vehicles and charging stations.

With a top-10 ranking among EV charger networks nationwide, Lynkwell attributes its industry-leading reliability and uptime as foundational to its success. The company's full vertical integration ensures effective deployment and ongoing support beyond infrastructure deployment, prioritizing customer satisfaction. As one of the only fully U.S.-based EV charging companies, Lynkwell serves as a valuable North American partner to Hubject.

"As a leader within the industry, Lynkwell represents an important partner to Hubject as we drive efficient scaling and enhance the charging experience for their drivers by leveraging Hubject's intercharge roaming platform and Plug&Charge ecosystem," said Trishan Peruma, CEO of Hubject North America. "Lynkwell shares our mission to focus on the entire user experience and best possible driver experience."

"This collaboration with Hubject underscores Lynkwell's commitment to delivering the most seamless EV charging experience for drivers. Partnerships like this are at the foundation of growing EV adoption worldwide as we continue to evolve to meet the needs of the EV charging landscape," said Nick Bordeau, vice president of engineering at Lynkwell.
