- AppyWay and Connected Kerb have partnered to transform the way drivers find available EV charging bays and how councils deploy, manage, and monitor charging infrastructure.
- The partnership includes the integration of Connected Kerb’s charging solution with AppyWay’s The Parking Platform™ real-time bay occupancy and insights.
- The partnership and integration will empower councils with the information they need to monitor EV charging facilities and plan rollout to scale their decarbonisation and net-zero ambitions.
Tuesday 24th October 2023, London, UK: AppyWay, Europe’s most-awarded intelligent parking and kerbside management company, is excited to announce its strategic partnership with Connected Kerb, an industry-leading provider of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. This collaboration aims to reshape electric vehicle charging and parking solutions, enhancing convenience and accessibility for EV drivers, whilst helping the local governments unlock the insights, they need to meet their net-zero targets.
Through the integration of The Parking Platform™ powered by AppyWay and Connected Kerb’s cutting-edge charging infrastructure, a seamless ecosystem has been created, allowing drivers to effortlessly locate available electric vehicle charging bays. This innovation addresses the “range anxiety” EV drivers find they experience when searching for charging facilities during their journey or at their destination.
For local governments, the solution empowers them with the tools they need to make, monitor and monitise EV charging bays, and provides them with the real-time insights and historical data needed to scale charging infrastructure rollout effectively and seamlessly.
As environmental concerns and government-led initiatives such as the ULEZ expansion continue to drive the adoption of electric vehicles, AppyWay and Connected Kerb’s integration is leading the charge in enabling local governments to meet the charging demands of today’s EV drivers and prepare for the 2035 ban on the sale of new internal combustion engine vehicles.
Dan Hubert, Founder & CEO of AppyWay, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership: “Teaming up with Connected Kerb marks another significant milestone in our mission to help cities decarbonise through innovative technology. The UK is at a pivotal moment in its EV charge point rollout and it’s the decisions that are made today that will impact whether local governments meet their infrastructure targets by 2035. Partnerships such as this are crucial in understanding charging demand and planning rollout in a scalable manner. By integrating The Parking Platform™ with Connected Kerb’s charging solutions, we’re making electric vehicle charging and parking a hassle-free experience for everyone, drivers and local authorities alike.”
Connected Kerb’s Head of Digital, Ben Boutcher-West also shared his excitement: “Our collaboration with AppyWay is a pivotal moment in making electric vehicle charging infrastructure reliable, inclusive and convenient for everyone. Together, we are poised to deliver a hassle-free charging experience for drivers and make it easy for councils to manage and monitor charging infrastructure, while also putting our planet first.”
The partnership between AppyWay and Connected Kerb represents a sizable step towards encouraging and accelerating electric vehicle adoption, and the rollout of charging infrastructure. The integrated solution is already being used by the likes of Coventry City Council and is set to roll out further, ushering in a new era of efficient, convenient, and eco-friendly electric vehicle charging and monitoring.
