"Driivz is unlocking the future of energy management, primed and ready for the next revolution: e-mobility 4.0."
Automakers are under huge pressure to embrace the EV revolution rapidly and effectively. Moving away from their original core competency, automakers are facing new challenges: if building EVs, they must also develop EV charging solutions for passenger, commercial vehicles and fleets.
Driivz tools and technology allow automakers to integrate with multiple large-scale networks, which means that vehicle manufacturers gain access to countless charging networks, and can provide a seamless, custom-branded and consistent EV charging experience for their customers, across international borders and state lines.
Right now, two revolutions are happening simultaneously, in mobility and in energy. Driivz is bridging the gap between these two revolutions and facilitating their dialogue. The Driivz team is a group of EV specialists who have witnessed several industrial revolutions over the years: telecommunications, the internet, digitization and automation.
Since 2013, Driivz has been the operating system for global EV charging. Today, it is more than that: it is a platform that provides digital services to support EV market growth drive the electrification of transportation and optimize overall energy consumption. Driivz is unlocking the future of energy management, primed and ready for the next revolution: e-mobility 4.0.
Enormous EV market growth will come with major challenges for EV market players – but also a huge opportunity to revolutionize the energy market.
By 2030, the world will have 40 million EV charging points according to GTM research. Vehicle manufacturers will need to support drivers in a seamless way, with the right type of high quality, easy to use infrastructure. Grid operators will need to support growing demand with already existing infrastructure.
What is needed is a technically excellent and stable platform that can support this growth and underpin a successful transition to a fully electriﬁed vehicle future, while providing new digital services for business.
This is where Driivz comes in. They have spent years developing a future-proofed, intuitive platform with extensive functionality. It has addressed problems that other providers have not, from customizable billing tools and self-healing functionality to roaming capabilities.
Driivz has leapfrogged from e-mobility 1.0 to e-mobility 4.0: a data-driven platform that is more connected to the EV ecosystem, more connected to energy demand and enables even further monetization of your assets.
But most importantly – and what drives the success of Driivz business – is its wider vision. Its dedication to producing advanced energy management tools means that EVs will be used to store energy, lowering prices for end-users and reducing carbon emissions.
Electric vehicles are not only for clean transportation. With advanced vehicle-to-grid technology, drivers now can also become energy suppliers and providers, reducing costs for individuals and businesses, as well as lowering overall energy consumption. This is what Driivz' future of energy management looks like, and they are there to bolster this progress.
Its customers’ success depends on how effective their platform is, so they have developed a wide-ranging portfolio of solutions to solve all EV charging management needs. Their work is not only future-proofed but also supports the latest innovations and protocols in EV-related energy management and other EV-related services.
Supporting the world’s largest charging networks as well as new market entrants, the success of Driivz will underpin a smooth transition towards a future-thinking EV charging network, worldwide.
Already, the company has saved the equivalent of over 43,000 tons of CO2. This will only increase as more drivers join the 700,000+ that currently use networks which run on Driivz' platform across 21 countries. Its high driver retention rate comes from the platform’s ease of use and the company's ability to invest in the improvement and evolution of its product, attracting global customers including EVgo, Elaad, ESB and Centrica.
As the adoption of electric vehicles increases, so will pressure on the grid. This presents an opportunity for utilities, whose position as guardians of grid infrastructure gives them a competitive advantage. If utilities act quickly, providing new products and services for their customers to embrace the EV revolution, this will not only save money in the long-term, but will instantly create new revenue streams in overlapping markets.
Driivz facilitates this opportunity by delivering a seamless and robust EV charging management platform. The company manages tens of thousands of chargers with its end-to-end solution, in the home, for fleets, in public and allow companies to set up their own billing plan for drivers charging on their network. This gives them the autonomy to generate profits and create new revenue streams in different markets. Utilities are also benefiting from Driivz's smart energy management offering and support for vehicle-to-grid (V2G) connectivity.
