DRESDEN – Volkswagen Group has selected ev.energy as one of five start-ups it will work with as part of its Future Mobility Incubator. Over the coming months, Volkswagen Group and its subsidiary, Elli, will explore how it can make its customers’ EV charging more environmentally friendly, cheaper and easier using ev.energy’s smart-charging software. The partnership will be delivered remotely from London and Berlin, and at Volkswagen’s Transparent Factory in Dresden.

Reinhard de Vries, Managing Director of Technology and Logistics at Volkswagen Sachse, said: “The Future Mobility Incubator is an important project for Volkswagen to anchor fresh and innovative ideas in the Group. It enables us to promote innovation even in challenging global times.”

Nick Woolley, co-founder and CEO of ev.energy, said: “We’re excited to be working with Volkswagen Group to deliver cheaper, greener, smarter charging to their EV customers. We are impressed by Volkswagen’s commitment to electric vehicles, as evidenced by their pledge to deliver 1 million EVs by the end of 2023, two years earlier than originally planned. And with over 125 million EVs expected on worldwide roads by the end of the decade, it is critical for OEMs to begin building the technological infrastructure that will enable their customers to seamlessly charge their vehicles with the cheapest, greenest energy possible.”
