Rhythmos.io and Qmerit Partner to Advance Electric Mobility Infrastructure

28 February 2024

With the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on U.S. roads expected to climb to 35 million by 2030, Rhythmos.io and Qmerit are paving the way for electric mobility through a new partnership aimed at overcoming charging-related challenges like grid capacity constraints and charger availability and maintenance. The Rhythmos.io Cadency EdgeAI™ software platform is a utility-driven optimized charging and energy management solution that can more than double EV charging capacity without costly and time-consuming infrastructure upgrades. Together with Qmerit – one of the nation’s leading charging implementation providers for residential and commercial applications – fleet and utility customers will access services from each company to help reduce deployment barriers and enable a streamlined approach to charging management.

Leveraging Qmerit’s robust electrification implementation capabilities, Rhythmos.io will offer its customers an end-to-end solution for site inspection, implementation, and maintenance of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) chargers. Access to Qmerit’s national network of certified electricians will help ensure a seamless process, saving customers time and money.

"Utilities and fleets are seeking turnkey solutions to EV charging. Utilities need to be able to accommodate dramatic load growth on their current infrastructure, while fleets need the tools to meet ambitious electrification goals,” said Ken Munson, CEO of Rhythmos.io. “By partnering our advanced analytics and optimized charging strategies with Qmerit’s best-in-class implementation services, we aim to reduce costs and alleviate electrification barriers for utilities, fleets, and EV owners alike.”

Rhythmos.io’s optimized EV charging software ensures predictability, flexibility and real-time transparency in managing EV charging operations, complementing Qmerit’s electrification services and mission to accelerate the energy transition. Qmerit’s customers will have the option to join Rhythmos.io’s Cadency EdgeAI™ software platform to optimize EV charging strategies, offering benefits such as increased efficiency, reduced costs and improved grid stability.

"As EV adoption increases, our charging infrastructure must keep pace to create a more sustainable transportation sector,” said Tom Bowen, president of Qmerit Solutions. “We need a connected EV charging ecosystem where industry stakeholders can access multiple complementary resources to make charging EVs as simple and streamlined as possible. With partners like Rhythmos.io, we are forging that reality and unburdening the electric mobility industry.”

Rhythmos.io is dedicated to addressing the diverse needs of fleet managers, operators, planners and utility partners. Through scalable and modular functionality, Rhythmos.io offers a comprehensive network solution that is adaptable and capable of growing alongside its customers.
