Car Charging Group has partnered with software and service company Gridscape Solutions to integrate Nissan’s DC Fast Chargers with the Blink Network.

Gridscape will design a turnkey hardware and software solution to integrate the Nissan chargers with the Blink Network.

“Interoperability is the key element that will fuel explosive growth and wide-scale adoption of electric vehicles,” said Vipul Gore, CEO of Gridscape Solutions.

This will give charging service hosts the opportunity to select the Blink Network to operate and manage their Nissan DC Fast Chargers.

“CarCharging has always been supportive of solutions that provide interoperability of EV charging stations and purchasing the Blink Network provided us with the ability to expand access to the network,” said CarCharging CEO Michael D. Farkas.

“As we have with Nissan, we welcome working with other EV charging service equipment manufacturers to truly expand the compatibility of EV charging stations and networks.”

Initial plans call for CarCharging to deploy 48 Nissan-branded quick chargers.

Car Charging Group acquired the Blink network in 2013.
