A start-up that aims to make charging electric vehicles easier and cleaner has won EDF Energy’s Pulse Innovation challenge.

Ev.energy provides solutions to energy companies and chargepoint operators as well as EV drivers.

Its apps can control charging around cost and carbon and can integrate with on-site/on-home renewables.

It also provides a white label solution to suppliers, enabling them to brand home and on the go charging and billing, with time of tariffs and rewards schemes.

Ev.energy is working with energy companies in Europe and North America, including EDF Energy, which awarded the firm £25k prize money.

Other finalists were:

Emu Analytics, which helps organisations drive more value from new and big data assets, particularly with reference to location, movement and time.

Verdigris, an artificial intelligence company which focuses on optimising building operation and energy consumption.

Enerbrain, which turns non-residential buildings that waste energy into smarter, healthier and more sustainable properties via its environmental sensors, actuators, algorithm and dashboard system.

Wondrwall, which has developed an intelligent living system that makes homes adapt to occupants’ needs and desires, automatically controlling heating, lighting, security and safety with voice control technology.
