Jedlix's smart charging app wins international innovation award
Jedlix - a subsidiary of Eneco Group - has won the Energy App Award for its smart charging app. This was announced today at E-world, the international energy and IT fair in Essen, Germany. This is the second year that the Energy App Award is presented. The award was created with the aim to reward the development of smart and customer-friendly energy-related digital solutions. Jedlix's #Ichargesmart app enables users to charge their electric cars during periods when there is ample supply of green electricity, for example during the night when the wind is strong. As this electricity is cheaper during these periods, this app is profitable for the users.
Taco van Berkel of Jedlix: ‘We are very proud of this acknowledgement. Over the past period, we have put a lot of effort in increasing the number of charge spots and electric cars that can connect with our app. This award confirms that we are on the right track and that we are a frontrunner on the European market with this service.’
More information about the Energy App Award can be found on the organisation's website.
Jedlix was named after the inventor of the electric motor, Anyos Jedlik. Its smart charging service was introduced to the market in April 2016, when it became available via the public smart charging spots of Elaad and the province of Noord Brabant. Jedlix also collaborates with Living Lab Smart Charging, Renault and BMW in the field of smart charging. Jedlix won the ICT Environment Award 2016 in September and the Energy App Award at the E-World Fair in February 2017. Jedlix is a subsidiary of renewable energy company Eneco.
