Battery-electric vehicle charging infrastructure provider EV Connect has entered a joint marketing and product agreement with GE's Industrial Solutions business, the company has announced.

Under the terms of the agreement, GE will be a preferred charging station supplier of EV Connect, and EV Connect will be a preferred management provider for GE charging stations worldwide. The agreement also provides EV Connect with direct access to GE's full line of WattStation and DuraStation EV charging stations, including a perpetual license to access the GE WattStation Connect cloud-based operating platform.

Since April 2014's announcement by GE regarding open access to the WattStation network, both companies have pursued numerous joint customer opportunities leveraging GE's highly reliable charge stations, EV Connect's robust management platform, and the efficient interoperability between all of the components.
