Charging electric vehicles with energy from renewable resources wherever they park – this was the goal when ubitricity was founded.Today, the company has become one of the leading providers of intelligent solutions for charging and billing EVs. For this, ubitricity combines technological know‐how with the possibilities of digitalization. Ubitricity has developed the Mobile Charging system that can be integrated into the charging cable or the car itself. Users enter into a mobile electricity contract for their mobile meter with a provider of their choice and charge everywhere with their tariff. At the end of the month, they only receive one invoice. The result: technologically lean and cost‐efficient charging spots that enable a ubiquitous roll‐out of charging infrastructure – as for example in London, where charging spots are installed in street lights. Moreover, the EV can be connected to the grid as mobile electricity storage – an important development for the energy transition.
