The expansion of EV charging and hydrogen fueling infrastructure lags behind demand. In view of the sharp rise of climate-friendly vehicles this trend will continue to intensify in the coming years. Reasons among others are cost and time intensive approval processes, construction measures, delivery bottlenecks and resulting investment risks. With regard to hyperchargers it is foreseeable that a location-based overload of the power grid will pose an additional problem.

Greenbox solves these problems by operating a system of hyperchargers (Green Electricity) and green H2 fueling stations which are supplied with mobile storage systems from local green energy sources instead of being connected to the grid. Staex provides secure and stable connectivity for these devices over unreliable networks.

We are thrilled to work with Staex to bring our hyperchargers and H2 fueling stations to even more clients ranging from fueling stations to retailers. Staex's expertise in secure and stable connectivity will ensure that our customers can rely on our service, even in areas with unreliable networks.

As the world becomes increasingly dependent on machines' infrastructure, it is crucial that we have a secure and reliable energy charging infrastructure in place. We are excited to be working with Greenbox to make EV charging and H2 fueling accessible to more people, no matter where they are. We are also working to ensure that the solution can be easily integrated into existing systems, making it a cost-effective option for organizations looking to upgrade their green infrastructure.

The partnership between Greenbox and Staex is a significant step forward. Together they are building secure, reliable, and distributed mobile EV charging as well as green hydrogen infrastructure and making it accessible and convenient for everyone. The infrastructure will enable capabilities like on-demand charging for autonomous vehicles, remote monitoring and management of charging stations, and integration with smart grid systems. These capabilities will bring Industry 4.0 closer to reality by enabling more efficient use of energy resources and supporting the growth of connected, autonomous transportation systems.

The companies are currently in the midst of the development to have an off-grid green fueling available for commercial use in 2023.

About Greenbox

Greenbox Mobile Energy enables the rapid transformation towards emission free mobility by supplying the required energy to the place where it is needed. The company's system of charging stations, refueling infrastructure and mobile storage systems is designed to offer green energy completely off grid operated through a smart and AI-ready logistic software.

About Staex

Staex is a software company that provides an overlay peer-to-peer network that bridges multiple physical networks and seamlessly connects them to the management and data ingestion servers. Staex flattens physical networks and allows the use of state-of-the-art IT automation tooling to maintain the system configuration with the same ease as with cloud servers.

Staex is a secure public network for IoT devices that can not run a VPN such as smart meters, IP cameras, and EV chargers. Staex encrypts legacy protocols, reduces mobile data usage, and simplifies building networks with complex topologies through its unique multi-hop architecture. Staex is fully zero-trust meaning that no traffic is allowed unless specified by the device owner which makes it more secure than even some private networks. With this, Staex creates an additional separation layer to provide more security for IoT devices on the Internet, also protecting other Internet services from DDoS attacks that are usually executed on millions of IoT machines.
