Renewable electricity supplier Good Energy has signed a pilot agreement with Europe’s largest smart charging solutions provider for electric vehicles, NewMotion.

The agreement will see NewMotion install smart electric vehicle charging points at Good Energy’s offices in Chippenham.

Following a successful six month trial, the two companies will work in partnership to develop an electric vehicle charging proposition for Good Energy’s business and domestic customers.

NewMotion is Europe’s largest provider of electric vehicle charging solutions, with a public network of over 50,000 charge points across 25 countries.

"Smart technology is a really big area for us as we move into 2018. This means a focus on battery storage, smart meters and electric vehicles," said Dr Randall Bowen, director of business services at Good Energy.

"We’re delighted to be working with NewMotion to diversify our offering and invest further in our electric vehicle capabilities. We look forward to developing a partnership that uses smart charging solutions to help support the increasing number of people driving electric vehicles in the UK."

Lee Feihn, UK business developer for NewMotion, added: "We’re very excited to be working with Good Energy, a company whose values align closely with our own."
