At the London EV Show, Gilbarco Veeder-Root, a leading business in fueling and convenience store technologies under Vontier Corporation (NYSE: VNT), announced the integration of the Driivz software platform with over 50,000 electric vehicle (EV) charge points globally. This collaboration highlights the synergy between Vontier Corporation’s businesses, including independent entities like Driivz, in advancing eMobility solutions.

This significant milestone is a major achievement for both Driivz and Gilbarco Veeder-Root, as the latter leverages more than 150 years of experience in the supply of energy to the global mobility sector to accelerate the growth of public charging infrastructure and decarbonisation of forecourts, contributing to reductions in emissions and air pollution.

Driivz enables major EV charging providers to run their networks at optimum efficiency by seamlessly taking care of all EV charging and energy management aspects. The system’s cloud-enabled, always-on diagnostics will quickly resolve any potential issues without the need for an engineering site visit – more than 80 per cent of issues are successfully resolved proactively and remotely. Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s expert field service technicians respond rapidly if a site visit is required.

By making charging an EV as simple and convenient as putting petrol or diesel in the tank, Driivz has enabled hundreds of millions of charging events around the globe, which during the last year put together amount to 345GWh of energy delivered. That’s enough to drive an EV for more than 1.8 billion kilometres – or more than 2,000 journeys to the moon and back – and, in the process, save more than 242,000 tonnes of C02 from entering the atmosphere.

“Whatever the size of your charging network, making it run efficiently, reliably, and profitably is key – and that’s what Gilbarco Veeder-Root delivers,” said James Gale, Head of e-Mobility for Europe. “With the Driivz software platform at its core, we have developed, optimised, and stress-tested the very best end-to-end EV charging system in the industry.”

Driivz is an intelligent, scalable, and flexible software platform that integrates into charging networks of any size, whether it’s just one charger, or one of tens of thousands. The cutting-edge system is behind the efficient, effortless, and reliable charging experience enjoyed by more than million EV drivers in more than 30 countries worldwide, across more than 50,000 charge points.

Gilbarco Veeder-Root is exhibiting at the London EV Show from 28-30 November, at Stand S27. From 14:25, 30th November in Auditorium 2, Andy Bennett, CEO of Evolve – sister entity to Gilbarco Veeder-Root – is giving a keynote speech at the event. Bennett will explore how changes in customer charging habits are driving where new public charging stations need to be rolled out, and how Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s end-to-end charging solutions, built around Driivz, are supporting the transition from combustion engine vehicles to clean, sustainable electromobility.
