ecars Partner Driivz to Pitch-Off at Free Electrons

ecars infrastructure software provider, Driivz, is one of 12 start-ups competing in a 'Pitch-Off' competition to win $25,000 (USD) as part of the Free Electrons event taking place on Friday 30 June in Trinity College, Dublin.

Driivz is a global industry leading, user friendly, modular, advanced proven cloud based technology company for charging infrastructure, serving the largest EV charging networks in Ireland, Netherlands, and the U.S.A. G

areth Davis, Head of ecars at ESB, outlined the contribution the Driivz software provides to the ecars public charging network."This system allows ESB ecars to monitor the availablility of the charge point network and to remotely operate charge point units in the field, as well as the ability to carry out fault diagnoses and repair. So as drivers plug in their EVs, and others disconnect and continue their journeys, the charge point map is constantly changing to reflect this."

The aim of the Free Electrons Accelerator Programme is to recruit 12 energy start-ups to help drive the next generation of ideas in clean energy, energy efficiency, electric mobility and on-demand customer services. ESB, alongside the consortium of utility companies and other partners, are supporting these start-ups to refine their products and services, with the potential of testing and developing them for a global customer base.

The competition will see the finalists perfect their pitch in front of a leading investment and start-up community.
