ev.energy, a platform providing smart electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions, has announced its partnership with Jumptech, a comprehensive platform dedicated to streamlining the installation process of EV charge points. The collaboration, scheduled to commence in January 2024, is set to accelerate the deployment of intelligent, compliant hardware throughout the UK, making a significant leap forward in the transition to EVs. By alleviating stress on the energy grid and delivering cost savings for end-users, the alliance is poised to redefine the landscape of EV charging.
The collaboration reflects a shared vision of nurturing a sustainable and efficient EV charging ecosystem. The partnership will focus on several key dimensions:
Educational initiatives for installers and end-users: The alliance will illuminate the benefits of smart EV chargers by empowering installers and end-users with the knowledge and tools to maximise efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
Expansion of compliant charging infrastructure: Central to this partnership is the widespread adoption of Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP). Compliant hardware ensures future-proofing, interoperability, and the development of a robust charging network.
Streamlining installation and commissioning processes: The collaboration aims to enhance efficiency for electricians and EV charge point installers. Doing so meets the growing demand for home installations and expedites the commissioning of charge points through Jumptech’s platform.
Promoting renewable energy integration: The partnership is committed to advancing the adoption of solar-compatible EV chargers, reducing dependency on non-renewable energy sources and contributing to the UK’s broader sustainability objectives.
Charlie Bodycote, CEO of Jumptech, says, “We’re on a mission to simplify EV charging, and our partnership with ev.energy takes us another step forward. Together, we’ll get more chargers to use renewable energy on cheaper tariffs and more miles can be driven on wind and solar power.”
Aaron Sweet, Head of Home Charging at ev.energy, adds, “Smart charging stands as a cornerstone in the evolution of a sustainable EV infrastructure. Our partnership with Jumptech is a monumental stride towards democratising access to intelligent, grid-compatible charging solutions. By harnessing our collective strengths, we are poised to redefine the EV charging experience, making it more accessible, efficient, and integral to a renewable energy future.”
