The pilot agreement, announced yesterday, will kick off with a six month trial of NewMotion’s smart electric vehicle charging points at Good Energy’s Wiltshire offices.
If the pilot project proves successful, NewMotion will then work with Good Energy to put together an EV charging packing for its business and domestic customers.
Dr Randall Bowen, director of business services at Good Energy, said the deal will help the energy supplier diversify its market offer. “Electric vehicles form an important part of our new strategy: an increased focus on clean technologies,” he added.
NewMotion is already Europe’s largest provider of electric vehicle charging solutions, with a public network of more than 50,000 charge points across 25 countries.
The partnership follows news earlier this month from rival green supplier Ecotricity, which launched an EV tariff bundle for its customers in partnership with EV charge point manufacturer Rolec.
The latest announcement from Good Energy follows the unveiling of new plans to deliver battery storage technology to the Eden Project in Cornwall. The deal, which represents Good Energy’s first foray into the fast-expanding battery storage market, will see it install five fridge-sized electricity storage units to help the eco visitor attraction match its electricity demand with supply.
