Renewable power supplier Good Energy has launched a new electric vehicle (EV) charging offering for UK businesses, known as One Point.
Good Energy says destination and workplace charging will be important for large numbers of drivers and this is an opportunity for businesses and crucial for the decarbonisation of the UK’s transport system.
The company wants to simplify the installation of EV charging points for its business customers by offering a streamlined, all-in-one service. The company’s energy experts will recommend, install and maintain charging services to save businesses time and money.
Good Energy intends to build a strong EV charging supply chain to support the offering, and has agreed partnerships with installers RAW Infrastructure and SWARCO, who will ensure optimal reliability for customer charging points.
in a pilot with Watergate Bay Hotel, Cornwall, Good Energy installed four EV chargers. The points are embedded with smart load balancing technology, so the chargers can turn off or on to level out supply and demand on the local network. Good Energy will use the lessons from the pilot to expand the full offering to businesses up and down the country.
“EV chargers will be the next hygiene factor for hotels. We wanted to get ahead of the curve and give all our visitors the best experience possible,” said Will Ashworth, chief executive at Watergate Bay Hotel.
The new product is Good Energy’s latest move into the electric vehicle and energy sharing market. Earlier this year, the company took stake in EV digital charging platform Zap-Map.
