Monta and evec partner up on UK affordable charging proposition

EV chargepoint manufacturer evec and Monta are joining forces to enable affordable and accessible charging across the UK.

evec’s range of residential and commercial EV chargers are powered by Monta, and the two companies hope to dramatically influence the UK’s EV charging targets and help meet the goal of 300,000 charge points in the UK by 2030.

The chargers will now be shipped directly from the factory with Monta software enabled as part of the Powered by Monta programme, ensuring an easy onboarding process to Monta’s platform. evec’s customers will be able to join and use Monta’s roaming network of over 280,000 charge points across Europe, meaning that each driver is able to charge at home, at work, and on the go.

The Monta platform enables charge point owners, both residential and commercial, to monetise their charge point by sharing it with the EV charging community. Charge point owners will be able to fully own the availability, cost, and access for charging ensuring a fully flexible solution for all charge point owners.

evec is aiming to be carbon positive across their entire operations and will use Monta’s data to understand the carbon impact of EV charging.

Stephen Johnson, CEO at evec, said: “Sustainability is core to everything we do at evec, and in partnering with Monta we hope to not only accelerate our own carbon reduction but to accelerate the decarbonisation of transport in the UK. Electric vehicles offer a huge opportunity to create a greener future in the UK, and evec and Monta will be a huge part of this transition. We’re confident that our high quality, value-conscious charge points combined with Monta’s innovative software solutions will enable a new influx of drivers to transition to EVs.”

evec’s newest commercial pedestal chargers will be Powered by Monta with Monta’s software available during installation, Alok Dubey, UK Country Manager of Monta, commented: “The UK is hugely lagging in EV charger installs, so it’s important that partners like evec are providing accessible ways to charge for residential and commercial users. By joining the Powered by Monta programme, EVEC ensures that all charge points can be intelligently managed and that each EVEC customer will have access to the best of Monta’s software and features.”
