To ensure that Australian electric vehicle drivers have a more seamless charging experience, EV Connect has announced that it is joining Australian company, Evie Networks to build an ultra-fast highway charging network, the largest of its kind in Australia.
Evie Networks will use EV Connect’s EV Cloud platform to deploy and manage a network of 42 sites and over 80 new ultra-fast Tritium charging stations in their first phase network, aimed at connecting Australia’s major capital cities. The Evie network will leverage the company’s EV charger deployment experience, and EV Connect’s charging data analytics and station uptime management to enable drivers, fleet owners, distributors, and retailers to go electric.
Using EV Connect’s EV Cloud platform, Evie Networks will deploy and manage a network of 42 sites and over 80 new ultra-fast Tritium charging stations in their first phase network, aimed at connecting Australia’s major capital cities.
“EV Connect is the most experienced charging software developer in the market, and we are putting that expertise and the EV Connect platform to work with our partners to build a clean, safe, convenient, and dependable EV charging network across the cities, towns, and highways of Australia,” said Chris Mills, CEO of Evie Networks.
“Based in one of the most mature EV markets in the world, EV Connect brings the experience and capability to reliably connect with a wide range of charging stations and vehicle models. We saw this as critical to providing the dependable charging experience that we want for Australian drivers and partners.”
It is expected the collaboration with Evie Networks in Australia will provide a seamless highway network of city-to-city transport for EV drivers and EV fleet operators by increasing the number of chargers in Australia into areas where they will be heavily utilised.
The EV Connect platform allows network operators like Evie Networks to manage everything from a single EV charging site to networks of hundreds of site operators with many thousands of sites and ports under management.
“For Australia to fully realize all the benefits of EVs, we have to reduce range and charging anxiety by giving drivers access to charging and information about chargers, no matter where they travel,” said Jordan Ramer, founder and CEO of EV Connect.
“We are excited to work with Evie Networks as we open the door to long-distance travel for electric vehicles by making charging more accessible and easy to use for drivers and more manageable for network operators.”
