Disrupters MisterGreen and Jedlix offer the alternative to the flexibility of fossil power stations
Amsterdam, December 16th, 2019 - The Amsterdam-based leasing company MisterGreen, currently the fastest growing leasing company in the Netherlands, will collaborate with Jedlix, the global market leader in Smart Charging. The aim is to eliminate gas and coal-fired power stations which are currently still needed for the balancing capacity of the energy grid. As a result of the partnership MisterGreen’s electric cars can charge cheaper and more importantly: greener. Via the Smart Charging service MisterGreen customers can optimize their charge sessions by charging on the best moment for the utility market. The aim of the cooperation is to make gas and coal-fired power stations, which are still needed for the balancing capacity of the energy grid, superfluous.
Innovative partnership makes electric cars future-proof
As a result of the increasing amount of electric cars and sustainably generated energy, smart charging is becoming an increasingly relevant theme. The partnership is therefore an important step for both MisterGreen and Jedlix. MisterGreen responds to the need of electric drivers to make use of innovative and sustainable Smart Charging technology. According to the project partners, it is desirable that Smart Charging becomes the charging method by default, where the user and his mobility needs are the central touchstone.
Smart Charging; convenient, cheaper and more sustainable
Smart Charging means that Electric Vehicle drivers (EV drivers) can balance and green the energy grid. This results in earnings for the drivers and extra CO2 emission savings. Automatically, the EV will be charged as much as possible with green and cheap energy for the energy market. The EV will stop charging at peak times on the energy market. In the Jedlix app, electric drivers can enter the desired loading preferences such as departure / start times and off-peak tariffs. Jedlix uses the car's internet connection, so no additional hardware is required. Contracted energy parties - such as ENGIE, Eneco, OM | New Energy, Tennet- reward Jedlix for the smart charging of electric cars. These revenues are shared with the electric drivers.
CEO Mark Schreurs: “Smart charging will be the new charging method by default for EVs. We are excited that we can welcome many electric cars on Dutch roads in the coming years. Smart Charging is therefore a must in order to reduce the total costs of ownership of EVs, to increase user-friendliness and to facilitate the integration of electric cars in the energy grid.”
Serge Subiron, Jedlix CEO adds: “We are proud to establish this partnership with a unique company such as MisterGreen and to offer the best "smart charging experience" to its customers. Together, we will help improve the use of renewable energy for a sustainable development of electric mobility in the Netherlands.”
Smart charge a Tesla at home is possible with any brand of charging station. In addition, Jedlix supports around 1000 public charging points throughout the Netherlands. The Jedlix app is available for fee in the iOS Store and Google Play Store. For more information go to www.mistergreen.nl and www.jedlix.com
MisterGreen does not rest until the use of fossil fuels for mobility is out of the world! To achieve this, MisterGreen started in 2008 with the mission: to accelerate the transition to sustainable mobility, by offering complete and reliable lease contracts for electric cars. In this way we together reduce the impact on people and the environment. But there is also an economic advantage. Driving electric is a lot cheaper than on gasoline or diesel.
Jedlix is the leading platform for smart charging of electric cars in Europe. Jedlix cooperates with Jaguar, BMW, Tesla Motors, Renault and various energy partners to unlock the value of flexibility in charging electric cars on a large scale, to reduce the cost of ownership and to achieve seamless integration into the electricity grid.
