New partnership to help EV fleets cut charging costs and carbon
A new partnership deal has been signed, helping electric vehicle fleets cut costs and reduce their carbon footprints.
The tie-up is between Pozitive Energy, a technology-led supplier of gas and renewable electricity, and smart charging tech specialist Electric Miles, who will now work together to develop innovations for EV fleet customers.
The focus is on enabling EV fleet operators to reduce charging costs while also maximising the use of renewable energy, and thereby cutting their carbon footprints.
The new intelligent tariffs will also support operators with carbon reporting requirements.
The partnership could also help support the grid by drawing on Electric Miles’ expertise in demand side response; this would work by using EVs on a vehicle-to-grid basis to provide instant supplies to balance the network when needed.
Electric Miles has about 20MWs of Demand Side Response (DSR) contracts with three major Distribution System Operators (DSO) and a patent-pending schedule-based charging platform to optimise charging when electricity is at its most abundant, green and cheap.
Arun Anand, CEO of Electric Miles, said: “The EV revolution is growing, and working with companies like Pozitive Energy is a great way to maximise the opportunities available using technology to deliver integrated customer solutions.”
