The Smart EV Charging Solution with Real-Time Insights

Save Money And Reduce Energy Strain With ChargeForward

ChargeForward optimizes EV charging times to save on electricity costs and promote sustainable energy practices.


When BMW pursued an innovative EV charging program to provide flexibility to the California electricity grid by relieving grid congestion while lowering the overall cost of owning EV and PHEVs, our team stepped in to search for an answer. The result was a digital solution we conceived and deployed in partnership with BMW.


Our solution, ChargeForward, guides Electric Vehicle (EV) owners through the charging process to modify vehicle charging time and lower electricity costs and renewables. In addition, it integrates with BMW’s telematics which yields real-time insights into vehicle charging information.

Relieving Grid Congestion While Lowering The Overall Cost

The solution also leverages signals from local utilities to provide current and forecasted local grid conditions for renewable energy to enable users to optimize charging costs for a fleet of BMW EV and PHEVs.

Enhancing Customer Experience

We designed and implemented several backend components and a micro-services architecture to integrate appropriately and aid customer experience.

Analytics Dashboard and Reporting Tool

Our efforts resulted in a customer-facing website and portal, including an analytics dashboard and vehicle reporting tool.
