Landis+Gyr’s electric vehicle charging business accelerates with software deal in New Zealand

Cham, Swiss – Etrel, a Landis+Gyr (SIX: LAND) company providing integrated e-mobility solutions, and meridian energy, from new zealand largest electricity producer, has signed an agreement to adopt the Etrel OCEAN charging station management system for the management and monetization of Meridian’s public charging network across the country.

Etrel provides integrated EV charging solutions that support EV deployment with a primary focus on charging technology to power EVs with green energy sources. Therefore, the choice of Etrel was a perfect match for Meridian, which generates electricity entirely from renewable sources – wind, water and sun.

Meridian’s top priority is to ensure its users have a smooth transition and experience using its electric vehicle charging network. OCEAN’s white label app will help them increase customer intimacy and build brand awareness while providing an exceptional charging experience. In addition, OCEAN’s extensive integration capabilities will allow Meridian to connect the current service offering to its electric vehicle charging service, facilitating the transition of its private and business customers to electric vehicles.

Tim CalderHead of Emerging Markets and Innovation at Meridian, welcomes the opportunity to work with Etrel to bring this software to the New Zealand market: “We know that driving electric vehicles is not only good for the environment, but also a great experience and we want to make sure that using our electric vehicle charging network is no different. Partnering with Etrel means that EV drivers using our charging network will be well supported and have an exceptional experience, especially during key moments such as registering, finding and using a charger and payment”.

“We are proud to support the ambitious deployment of Meridian’s electric vehicle charging network and help achieve from new zealand energy transition goals,” said Rok Poteko, software sales manager at Etrel. “People are at the heart of our e-mobility solutions, from electric vehicle drivers who use our white label app to our partners who manage their customers’ journeys in the back-end system. We will enable Meridian to provide a seamless charging experience for electric vehicles.
