The partnership will integrate Synop’s vehicle, charging, and energy management solutions with Lion’s advanced telematics offering, LionBeat. Non-LionBeat subscribers can also access this solution as an add-on.
Marie Bedard, Director of Lion Ecosystem, expressed her enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, “We’re excited to partner with Synop to provide our customers with a market-leading energy management solution. This collaboration offers our customers a highly advanced energy management software that further builds upon Lion’s robust Ecosystem portfolio.”
How Does the New Electric Partnership Work?
Lion is advancing its ecosystem offerings by leveraging Synop’s APIs. The partnership equips electric trucks and school buses with a single interface displaying all the necessary data and details to manage their assets.
This empowers customers to manage infrastructure efficiently and make informed decisions that maximize uptime and minimize cost.
Synop’s technology can provide revenue for Lion customers through its advanced vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology. The software automates energy management, prioritizing charging at lower-cost off-peak hours. This equips customers to sell that energy back to the grid at a higher price during peak hours from vehicles not in use.
Synop CEO Gagan Dhillon also expressed his excitement: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Lion. Lion is a leader in the industry, and the combined offering will bring many advanced solutions to Lion customers, furthering both companies along our shared mission to get more commercial EVs on the road.”
