ESSENT AND XXIMO JOIN FORCES IN SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY
XXImo Mobility offers together with Essent a one-stop-shop for charging electric cars: charging points, payment options, a European charging network and all support services from one single supplier
‘s-Hertogenbosch, November 21, 2018 – To realise a sustainable living environment without CO2 emissions, the energy fuelling millions of cars in the Netherlands and Belgium needs to change from fossil fuel to clean electricity. That’s why Essent and XXImo are teaming up to stimulate and facilitate electric driving with customers and their employees.
Essent is one of the leading energy companies in the Benelux. In the new partnership, Essent will provide the energy and expertise in installing charging points. innogy, the company that Essent is part of, will provide the wall boxes. innogy has already installed 24,000 charging points in twenty countries. In Belgium and the Netherlands this is now also taking off.
From now on, XXImo customers will be able to buy charging stations, incorporate this in their mobility budget or lease contract, including MobilityCard with charging function throughout Europe. In addition, employees can settle their charging costs at home with their employer via XXImo. Charging point maintenance and the ability to use a service desk seven days a week completes the offer.
Due to the cooperation between Essent and XXImo, electric driving will be made easier and possible at a growing number of locations in Europe. The business-to-business market is gaining a unique one-stop-shop provider who combines expertise of the energy market with expertise of the mobility market.
Stella Brenninkmeijer, Director Marketing Development & Digital at Essent: “A green living environment requires we make all our energy needs sustainable: our transport means should also use clean energy. Essent would like to be the number 1 in new energy for everybody. That’s why the cooperation with XXImo is very important to us. This is a major step forward to realise the climate objectives of the Paris agreement and enable more people to contribute to this.”
Also Patrick Bunnik, CEO of XXImo, underlines the importance of this new partnership for drivers of electric cars: “Now people who drive electric cars often have to deal with multiple companies to buy their charge card, charging station, the installation, when there is a defect, or for billing and administration of charging at home. That is complicated and an obstacle for employees to transfer to electric driving. XXImo combines everything in one web portal with one centralized service desk, simplifying the access to electric driving significantly.”
