Independent energy supplier Pozitive Energy and Swiss energy management solutions provider Landis+Gyr have joined forces.
Once deployment has been completed, the partnership will see Pozitive Energy provide the largest network of EV chargers in the UK, it said.
The partnership will see businesses accessing end-to-end EV charging infrastructure, including full installation and management of Landis+Gyr’s EV charging solutions, fixed national pricing, ‘tap and go’ payment processes, and the ability to earn revenues or offset energy bills from chargepoint use.
Nathan Daniels, Head of Electric Vehicles at Pozitive Energy, commented: “For too long, the country’s EV charging infrastructure has presented a barrier to consumer adoption. Working with Landis+Gyr to develop this unique approach to EV charging will see UK businesses gain access to revenue generating charge points, while also offering drivers access to a much more robust and easier to use charging network thus benefiting us all in an expanding EV infrastructure.
“As a tech-first energy supplier to businesses, we are in a unique position to deliver a future-proof EV charging solution that ensures all regulatory and legislative changes are accounted for while providing unrivalled automation and ease of use.
Rob Harper, Director of Sales, UK & Ireland, Landis+Gyr, concluded: “This partnership provides business customers with a unique no-regrets decision to boost the growth of a much-needed EV charging infrastructure.
“The installation of Landis+Gyr chargers and all supporting contactless payment terminals means that drivers can pay without the need for a mobile application. The deployment of the EV chargers is being managed by both company’s advanced IT capabilities. We are looking forward to watching the growth of the network as we look to manage energy better.”
