Plans revealed to install electric vehicle charging points across Australia

US-company EV Connect has announced it will partner with Australian-firm Evie Networks to launch a fast-charging corridor in Australia for electric vehicle drivers.

The network will be the largest of its kind in Australia. Evie Networks will use EV Connect’s EV Cloud platform to deploy and manage a network of 42 sites and over 80 new ultra-fast Tritium charging stations in their first phase network, aimed at connecting Australia’s major capital cities.

The Evie network will leverage the company’s EV charger deployment experience, and EV Connect’s charging data analytics and station uptime management to enable drivers, fleet owners, distributors, and retailers to go electric.

“EV Connect is the most experienced charging software developer in the market, and we are putting that expertise and the EV Connect platform to work with our partners to build a clean, safe, convenient, and dependable EV charging network across the cities, towns, and highways of Australia,” Chris Mills, CEO of Evie Networks said.

“Based in one of the most mature EV markets in the world, EV Connect brings the experience and capability to reliably connect with a wide range of charging stations and vehicle models. We saw this as critical to providing the dependable charging experience that we want for Australian drivers and partners.”

“For Australia to fully realise all the benefits of EVs, we have to reduce range and charging anxiety by giving drivers access to charging and information about chargers, no matter where they travel,” Jordan Ramer, founder and CEO of EV Connect said.

The ultra-fast chargers Evie Networks is deploying at select highway locations across Australia will give EV drivers a charging experience similar to that of refueling a conventional internal combustion engine.
