evec and Monta team up for charging solution
Charge point firm evec has partnered with platform provider Monta to offer an integrated solution across the UK, the companies have announced.
Chargers from evec, which are installed in both domestic and commercial settings, will be powered by Monta under the deal. Products will now be shipped directly from the factory with Monta software to ensure an easy transition onto the firm’s platform. Additionally, evec’s customers can use Monta’s roaming network of 280,000 charge points across Europe.
The Monta platform also enables charge point owners, both residential and commercial, to monetise their charge point by sharing it with the EV charging community. Charge point owners will be able to fully own the availability, cost, and access for charging ensuring a fully flexible solution for all charge point owners.
Monta’s data will also assist evec directly as it aims to use the company’s information to understand the carbon impact of EV charging and it’s own corporate aims to be carbon positive across its entire operations.
Stephen Johnson, CEO at evec, said: “Sustainability is core to everything we do at evec, and in partnering with Monta we hope to not only accelerate our own carbon reduction but to accelerate the decarbonisation of transport in the UK. Electric vehicles offer a huge opportunity to create a greener future in the UK, and evec and Monta will be a huge part of this transition. We’re confident that our high quality, value-conscious charge points combined with Monta’s innovative software solutions will enable a new influx of drivers to transition to EVs.”
Alok Dubey, UK Country Manager of Monta, added: “The UK is hugely lagging in EV charger installs, so it’s important that partners like evec are providing accessible ways to charge for residential and commercial users. By joining the Powered by Monta programme, EVEC ensures that all charge points can be intelligently managed and that each EVEC customer will have access to the best of Monta’s software and features.”
