BMW is a brand that is always looking for ways to keep moving forward. For their latest innovation, BMW created i ChargeForward. That initiative is earning some very prestigious recognition.
According to a BMW press release, BMW i ChargeForward received a 2015 ESNA Innovation Award.
ESNA, short for Energy Storage North America, recently handed out awards for vehicles with innovative and sustainable technology.
i ChargeForward was developed with the help of the company Geli. It is a second-life energy storage system that helps BMW’s vehicles achieve unheard of levels of sustainability.
“This project is a great example of Geli's vision coming to life - to network and leverage disparate assets to provide multiple energy services,” said Dr. Ryan Wartena, CEO and Co-founder of Geli. “Our work with the BMW Group Technology Office is a breakthrough use of second life vehicle batteries and paves the way for integration of EVs as grid resources.”
This is just the latest award that BMW can add to its ever-growing collection!
