Pinergy, the smart energy supplier delivering 100 percent renewable electricity, has partnered with Ohme, a specialist provider of innovative smart charging technology for electric vehicles. The partnership will help Irish customers to find the best EV charging tariff available to them through Pinergy Drive’s smart metering technology.
The new partnership was launched at World EV Day on 9 September of which both companies are founding partners. This partnership is the first of its kind in Ireland. It builds on the popularity and growth experienced by Ohme in the UK market, where it has partnered with innovative energy companies.
The partnerships have put UK drivers in control to charge their electric vehicles during low peak hours and/or when the grid is at its greenest. When there is excess supply on the grid, those drivers on the right electricity tariffs can even be paid to charge.
The Ohme team sought Pinergy out as it has the unique ability to do time of use tariffs through its smart meter technology to launch into the Irish market. With these time of use tariffs, Pinergy can price electricity at variable prices at different times of the day, based on demand. For example, Pinergy can offer their customers an EV charge at a 70 percent discount between 2am and 5am. This works out at about €1 to charge for 150km range.
Pinergy and Ohme are also offering the first 100 Electric Vehicle customers who sign up to the offer a discounted Ohme cable at €300 (Normal price will be €450).
Enda Gunnell, CEO at Pinergy, said: “We’re very excited to be working with Ohme on this new partnership. Using the Ohme intelligent cable in conjunction with Pinergy’s unique time of use tariffs offers EV drivers a fantastic opportunity, particularly those drivers who want to charge their vehicle at home.
The future of electric vehicles in Ireland is huge and the potential for what Pinergy can do for its EV customers is very exciting and we’re looking forward to unveiling many more promising possibilities. We’re delighted to be a founding partner of World EV Day and look to forward to continuing to deliver innovation solutions for our commercial and domestic customers.”
David Watson, CEO and founder at Ohme, said: “We are delighted to partner with Pinergy in Ireland. EVs play a vital role in Ireland’s transitions to green mobility. Pinergy’s 100 percent renewable energy offering, combined with Ohme Intelligent charging is great news for EV drivers and the environment. It will not only significantly reduce the total cost of owning an EV by passing on energy cost savings but will have a profound and positive impact on Ireland’s green agenda”
