London, UK — Leading electric vehicle (EV) smart charging provider, ev.energy, joins forces with global solar innovation leader, Maxeon Solar Technologies, to revolutionise the future of EV charging. The strategic partnership will drive the roll-out of EV smart and solar charging solutions across EMEA.
Through this collaboration, ev.energy will become one of Maxeon Solar Technologies’ global SunPower One ecosystem partners for EV Solar and Smart Charging. This integration will empower customers with a combined smart charging and solar charging solution that will help drive a more sustainable and cost-effective way for EV drivers to recharge.
Maxeon Solar Technologies has partnered withev.energy to provide a best-in-class smart and solar EV charging experience. Maxeon’s customers will have access to ev.energy’s world-leading EV smart charging solar functionality straight out of the box inside the SunPower One ecosystem. The two companies have taken an open collaboration approach to software collaboration, allowing SunPower One users to easily log in to theev.energy app with their Maxeon account using a Single-Sign-On login with their SunPower One credentials.
With ev.energy’s SOLAR solution, EV drivers can use their excess Solar power to charge their car (Solar Only mode), or use the combination of excess solar plus grid energy to power their car, ensuring the cheapest, greenest charge every time (Solar Smart mode).
“We are thrilled to partner with Maxeon Solar Technologies to bring our advanced EV smart charging solutions to customers worldwide”, said Aaron Sweet, Head of Home Charging at ev.energy. “This partnership marks a game-changer in driving EVs in a net zero way by enabling the charging of EVs with renewable energy.
