Ideanomics Energy Pens Agreement with Coast Counties Peterbilt to Deploy and Operate Green Charging Solutions


Ideanomics (NASDAQ: IDEX), a global company focused on accelerating the adoption of commercial electric vehicles (EV),  announced that it has signed an agreement with Coast Counties Peterbilt to deploy and operate energy and charging solutions at Coast Counties’ truck dealerships in California.

The agreement includes a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) and a Charging-as-a-Service component. Ideanomics Energy will deploy DC fast charger, renewable energy generation, and storage at four Coast Counties Peterbilt dealerships in California. In addition, Ideanomics Energy’s management software will ensure high utilization and cost optimization. This turnkey solution will be offered to Coast Counties Peterbilt at a pre-agreed monthly amount.

The deal is the first announced by Ideanomics Energy, a newly created energy division providing turnkey charging & energy solutions. It will further Ideanomics’ holistic mission of being an A-to-Z full-service commercial electrification provider for fleets throughout their electrification journey.

As the one-stop charging and energy partner, Ideanomics Energy offers everything from agnostic energy management software with modular charging and energy solutions – including WAVE’s high-power wireless charger – as well as a broad range of services from initial planning, engineering, and installation to operations and maintenance of the deployed energy assets. The new business division aligns with the existing Ideanomics Mobility and Ideanomics Capital divisions. Ideanomics Energy simplifies EV charging and energy strategies for fleets, providing software and hardware which grow with the customers’ operations and electrification targets.
