SCAME and Monta Join Forces to Revolutionise EV Charging Across The UK

Charge point manufacturer, SCAME, and EV charging software platform, Monta, have partnered up to increase the amount of public charge points in the UK as well as simplify the installation, management, and use of chargers. Using the Monta platform, SCAME will be able to quickly add, manage, and provide charge points for businesses, organisations, and local councils, as well as provide 24/7 customer support to EV charge point owners and a unified payment system.
SCAME charge point owners will gain full visibility into the charge point network, allowing them to manage the availability of charge points, energy use, costs, maintenance, and more. The Monta software can also provide businesses with features such as smart queueing, reservation, and load-balancing to simplify the charging process. The UK government recently extended the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) throughout 2022 to provide more support for small businesses, with up to £15,000 available per building towards the cost of installing charge points. For further information see the IDTechEx report on Charging Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles and Fleets 2022-2032.
"Although a lot more businesses are looking to transition to clean energy, it can be daunting for some to start offering their own EV charge points," said Alok Dubey, UK Country Manager at Monta. "By teaming up with SCAME, we're looking to simplify this process for businesses as well as providing intelligent services that can see them enjoy an added source of revenue while offering employees and the public access to a wider network of EV charge points."
"This partnership with Monta is just the start of our mission to deliver smart charge point solutions to UK businesses, allowing them to reach their net-zero goals and provide renewable energy solutions," said Mark Wood E-Mobility UK Business Manager at Scame. "We're looking forward to working with like-minded companies like Monta to supercharge the UK's EV charging network."
SCAME was the first company in the end of 1990s to develop rapid charging systems for electrical vehicles. Headquartered in Bergamo, Italy, the family-run company has continued to innovate electric vehicles recharging solutions ever since, today exporting its products in over 80 countries. Available as a web-based app, Monta connects business owners with manufacturers and installers to help provide EV charge points. Manufacturers can use the app to find businesses interested in installing charge points, while business owners can track energy consumption, usage, and costs in real-time.
About Monta
Monta is an electric vehicle (EV) charging platform that is looking to revolutionise EV charge point infrastructure across Europe. By providing an EV charging app for car owners and a management system for charge point owners, Monta connects drivers, site owners and charge installers to supercharge electric vehicles and create an open, accessible network of charge point infrastructure. The Monta software allows any company, organisation, and public entity with available sites and space to view, manage and set up charge points for employees, guests, and public EV drivers. Charge point owners can then manage users, power usage, pricing, access and transactions through the Monta app. Through peer-to-peer charging, homeowners can share their chargers with a community of EV drivers as a source of additional income while helping save the planet. By connecting personal EV chargers to the Monta app, private charge point owners can view their charging history, manage access to the charge point, and set their own pricing and usage.
