EV energy and mina partnership

Charging a company vehicle is about to get a lot smarter, as Mina and ev.energy have announced a partnership between the two firms. 

The Mina platform is designed to give company owners a simple way to track and pay for their fleet’s electric vehicle charging costs, by providing a single bill for all charging no matter where it occurs. However, while they would be given the data on how much it costs to charge these vehicles, they would have no control over when these vehicles were charged as that was left up to the individual driver. 

By partnering with ev.energy, those using the Mina platform will soon have more granular control over when their fleets are being charged. This is because ev.energy’s technology can hold back a vehicle’s charge for when the grid is at its greenest. Plus, for those who have smart energy tariffs like Octopus Go at home, this smart control of when a vehicle can charge could reduce the cost for the company. 

Additionally, the partnership with ev.energy also provides Mina customers with the ability to access a holistic view of each driver’s charging data from the vehicle itself, giving drivers an unrivalled smart charging experience. Fleet managers will also benefit from market-leading insights into their vehicle charging behaviour.

Ashley Tate, CEO and co-founder of Mina, noted, “The partnership with ev.energy forms a key part of Mina’s connected car technology strategy. By combining data from multiple sources, Mina is able to provide customers with ultimate assurances in accuracy, fraud prevention and driver experience.”

What’s more, with over 50,000 users now having downloaded the ev.energy app, fleet drivers on the Mina platform will have full access to the premium features available from the software provider, such as advanced charge scheduling to reduce their carbon footprint and precise charging criteria to protect the car battery.

Nick Wooley, CEO and Co-Founder of ev.energy, added, “Mina is building a fantastic business serving fleet managers, and we are delighted to support Mina’s fleet drivers to use ev.energy and unlock the benefits of smart charging. I’m excited to be working with Ash and the team to broaden the benefits of our joint services, helping fleet drivers charge using the greenest energy, and save with smart charging.”

Over 150 test users have already come forward to trial the early integration in February 2022 alongside the Indra Smart Pioneer. The service will be available to other fleets, small businesses, and sole traders from March 2022.
