Founded in 2021, PIONIX GmbH, set its mission to accelerate the developments in the young and less standardized industry of EV charging. Experiences of the founders from other industries (Drone startup MAVinci, bought by Intel) about the power of open-source technology have led PIONIX to initiate the open-source software stack EVerest. EVerest is aiming to establish a standard for an unified EV eco system by eliminating the pain points like lacking compatibility, resource expenditure and innovation hurdles.
said Dr. Marco Möller
CEO of PIONIX GmbH
EVerest is part of LF Energy, the open-source foundation focused on the power systems sector, hosted within The Linux Foundation. Formed in 2018, LF Energy’s aim is to spur the uptake of digital technologies within the electricity sector and adjoining sectors using open source software and practices. Many major tech companies have partnered with LF Energy to achieve the goals set.
To achieve emission reductions in the coming years, also by providing a wide and easy to use charging ecosystem, fundamental steps need to be made. Today many manufacturers of EV charging stations develop their own proprietary software, although products need to work in an eco-system with other brands, cars and energy networks. PIONIX's solution is offering a standardized core, which helps develop products quicker, save costs and make sure new products are compatible with the entire grid of players.

Since its founding, PIONIX has successfully developed and distributed applications for different component and charging station manufacturers like Texas Instruments or Mahle. This pioneering work also led to receiving the Make it matter Award hosted by EWS Schönau, the award >SMART> GREEN ACCELERATOR, and the Startup of the Year 2022 award at Automobilwoche Kongress (organized by McKinsey).
PIONIX is the leading open-source pioneer for EV charging technology in Europe. In 2021 PIONIX initiated EVerest, the first freely accessible and holistic software solution for the booming market of e-mobility.
The open-source software stack EVerest is the perfect solution to develop, optimize, and unify electric vehicle charging infrastructure. It is the answer to the incompatibility between different charging systems. The company supports its business customers to apply EVerest and customized it to their needs.
The company is headquartered in Bad Schönborn, Germany. Its customers include charging station manufacturers, component developers and energy utilities in Europe and North America.
