CNets spin-off company CheckWatt is expanding its product portfolio to meet the growing popularity and needs of electrical vehicles (EVs). Sweden is ranking among the world’s top ten market for best-selling plug-ins since 2015.
In December 2020 a total of 217,704 plug-in vehicles have been registered, 148,889 plug-in hybrids, 62,870 all electric cars and 5,945 all electric vans have been registered in Sweden since 2011. As EVs are actively supported by the government with financial grants and charging at home is cheaper than petrol, diesel or public charging more home owners are looking for smart solutions. CheckWatt does not only want to offer homeowners a solution to charge their cars, but also to manage their electrical home installations, solar installations and to maximize savings reducing power-related costs. Solutions enable users to visualize charging together with other energy-related data. For starters CheckWatt initiated a collaboration with EpSpot and Zaptec, further collaborations are being negotiated.
