waEV-charge, the next generation of electric vehicle (EV) chargers designed for house builders, developers, landlords, and homeowners, has partnered with EV software specialist, ev.energy, to enable building managers and EV drivers to share smart-charging chargers across multiple tenants, and get reimbursed for costs. The collaboration means commercial property developers and homeowners will have access to fast, cost-effective, greener smart charging technology, while helping to open a network of rentable chargers across the UK, accelerating our transition to EV adoption.
waEV-charge’s customers will benefit from being able to recharge on any charger in their shared residential car park, as well as ev.energy’s ‘smart charging’ product feature, which automatically optimises a car’s charging schedule according to when there is low energy demand on the grid, and when energy is cheapest and greenest. Through the ev.energy app, consumers can keep track of every charging session's energy and carbon usage, claim cash rewards from their charging, and even connect to their home solar power for a zero-carbon charge. The average EV driver can save £600 on their energy bills and shopping, just by connecting their EV and charging through ev.energy technology*.
waEV-charge products are designed with the future in mind, meaning all components can be easily upgraded with future EV technology and with minimal further investment. Built with quality and safety at its core, the waEV-charge EV1 charger is both TÜV CE & UKCA quality certified, EVSCP regulation compliant, EVHS & WCS, OZEV approved and features O-PEN protection. RFID and WiFi Smart editions are also available.
The smart EV charger is eligible for £350 government grant funding, saving on purchase and installation costs.
Nick Wooley, CEO of ev.energy, says, “Partnering with waEV-charge means that ev.energy are expanding our offering outside of the traditional single driveway dwelling. With waEV-charge, we’ll be able to provide even more EV drivers access to smart charging functionality to recharge their EV sat multi-unit dwellings, alongside our accessing rapid charging, and traditional charging.”
Joe Fogel, CEO of waEV-charge, says, “ev.energy’s technology takes our smart charger to the next level, offering our customers access to the cleanest and cheapest charge, which is sensitive to the demand on the national grid. Combine this with the grant available for the purchase and install of the waEV-charge, and our EV charger becomes an extremely attractive option for house builders, developers, landlords, and homeowners.”
*Based on the RAC Foundation statistics 29 April 2020 that an average UK driver travels 9,400 miles per year at an efficiency of 3 miles per kWh. As of June 01, 2022, National domestic energy pricing has an average of 28.3 pence per kWh. Peak and off-peak charging are based on the national average of the Octopus Go tariff. (£0.30 peak rate & £0.07 off-peak rate). Find the rates based on your postcode. Through multiple trials and our app data, we have shown that ev.energy has the capability to shift energy from the average peak service window up to 100% (6pm-9pm). We have based the above calculations on a 97% shift in energy from peak to off-peak pricing(Bloomberg ‘A review of real-world data from ev.energy’s smart charging platform’, October 2021).
