Volue Announces a Trio of New Partners to Enhance its Spark Ecosystem
The Spark solution provides users across Europe and the Nordics with smart charging optimised for a week-long price forecast. It has been designed to enable automakers, EV fleets, and charging operators to provide their customers with even greater value, while helping them to remain competitive and profitable.
Enode, Gridio and Deftpower are the latest to become part of Volue’s Spark ecosystem. The partner collaboration continues to deliver a data-driven smart-charging solution. By leveraging long-term power price predictions, a key output from Spark, EV owners can now make informed decisions on when to charge their vehicles, saving on their power bill and contributing to a more sustainable energy ecosystem.
Enode’s mission is to accelerate the transition to a sustainable energy system by connecting and optimising the world’s energy devices. Elsewhere, Gridio is one of the leading providers of smart charging in the Nordics, offering easy integration to most key car and solar inverter brands. Deftpower completes the trio. Deftpower provides a high-end platform that solves problems in EV charging, serving 100k drivers and offering innovative solutions for transaction handling and smarter charging.
By pairing real-time data with long-term forecasting, Volue’s Spark solution is helping to create real value for consumers, EV aggregators and distributors.
On the announcement, Kjetil Storset, Spark Lead, Volue said: “By leveraging our extensive expertise and cutting-edge solutions, we are committed to helping operators identify opportunities, create value and remain competitive, while simultaneously providing users with guidance on optimal charging locations and times.
“By establishing partnerships with industry leaders like Enode, Gridio and Deftpower, and collaborating closely, we are building a robust partner ecosystem dedicated to maximising the potential of smart charging services.”
The announcement follows independent research undertaken by Volue’s Senior Research Developer, Johannes Phillip Maree PhD, quantifying the benefits of forecasted charging plans for EVs. Results revealed that users adopting smart charging plans based on granular price data could increase their weekly energy savings by an average of 23,2% during this period.
