BOLZANO – Italian green energy provider Alperia has partnered with ev.energy to develop innovative e-mobility services for customers in the Italian market. With strong alignment of vision to create a zero-carbon future, ev.energy will work alongside Alperia to combine it’s energy from nature with smart electric vehicle charging.
Over the last six months, ev.energy has taken part in Alperia’s Startup Factory, along with five other startups selected from 230 applications from all over the world. The project included talking with 200 EV owners in Italy to understand their specific needs and challenges, developing a new e-mobility app, integrating with new smart hardware and designing and testing compelling propositions for Alperia’s EV driving customers.
After successfully pitching to Alperia’s board, ev.energy was selected along with three other startups EcoSteer, FlexiDAO and HeatVentors to take their innovations to the next stage. Over the coming months, we will be working closely with Alperia to take the product to market and scaling it commercially across Italy.
Sergio Marchiori, Director of Alperia Smart Region, said “We are confident we can go-to-market quickly with ev.energy’s solution. They have a great product that will enable us to develop market leading solutions for our EV customers and continue promoting e-mobility.”
