DUBLIN, Ireland, December 5, 2023 – Avanci, the independent global leader in joint licensing solutions, today launched a new licensing program for cellular-connected smart electric vehicle (EV) chargers, with three initial licensees including Easee, Eaton, and GARO.

Kasim Alfalahi, founder & CEO of Avanci, said: “We are proud to launch Avanci EV Charger, a new program for the Internet of Things, expanding on our experience in creating the one-stop marketplace for connected vehicle licensing. Avanci brings a simpler, more efficient approach to sharing the work of thousands of inventors at companies and research institutes around the world.”

Smart EV chargers use their internet connection to play a crucial role in making electric vehicle charging more efficient, convenient, and sustainable while supporting the integration of EVs into the larger energy ecosystem. With installations of cellular-connected EV chargers predicted to grow by around 40% CAGR and with over 80 million units forecast to be installed by 2030, Avanci brings efficiency to the sharing of essential technologies and the build-out of the EV charging infrastructure.

Erik Færevaag, CEO at Easee, said: “Avanci streamlines our licensing for connected chargers, freeing us to enhance value for our customers.”

Niklas Rönnäng, CEO, GARO E-mobility, added: “The partnership with Avanci allows us to efficiently manage the licenses for our connected chargers, which is positive for both our customers and GARO E-mobility. This means that we can continue to focus our efforts on delivering innovative solutions for charging of electric vehicles to the market.”

The Avanci EV Charger program offers manufacturers of smart EV chargers the efficient option of a single license for their connected products, covering the essential 4G, 3G & 2G cellular patents of the 43 licensors in the program today, plus those who join in the future. The program licenses at fair, published rates paid once for the lifetime of each charger, spanning a range of cellular-connected EV chargers from individual home units to multi-outlet systems for public charging.

Marianne Frydenlund, Vice President, IOT licensing at Avanci, concluded: “The Avanci EV Charger program is an exciting new solution for the Internet of things, and we are delighted to welcome Easee, Eaton, and GARO as our first licensees. When we discussed new opportunities with IoT companies, there was a clear need to simplify technology sharing in the fast-growing smart EV charger market, and our initial licensees and licensors enthusiastically engaged with us to provide input. We look forward to recruiting further participants.”
