    EV Everywhere

    OVO Energy

    EV Everywhere is the only energy tariff to bundle 100 percent renewable household energy with free membership to the POLAR network of more than 5,000 charge points throughout the country - providing the best value one-stop household and electric vehicle plan on the market today.

    What customer problems did you set out to solve?

    The proposition was launched to give customers comfort that they could easily charge their car with renewable electricity both whilst at home and whilst on the road. Many people continue to be concerned about how they can charge their car and “range anxiety” - the POLAR network has a wide spread of chargers across the UK, making it convenient to charge almost wherever you happen to be. To support EV Everywhere and help to increase the uptake of EVs in the UK, we also launched an EV section on the OVO Forum.

    What differentiates your proposition from other offerings in the market?

    The EV Everywhere bundle is the only offering on the market which offers two-year fixed unit rates for renewable home energy supply and free membership to the POLAR network with unlimited access to more than 5,000 charge points nationwide. It also offers 100% renewable energy to power customers’ homes and vehicles. EV Everywhere also includes a complimentary smart meter installation and three percent interest reward on a credit balance.

    What impact has the proposition had?

    EV Everywhere established OVO as a leader in this space, attracted thousands of customers, increased our understanding of the sector to support the rollout of smart-charging and paved the way for our revolutionary V2G programme that will allow customers to pay for the electric driving by selling energy back to the grid at peak times. It’s been a great start and the future looks even more exciting.

    What’s next for your proposition?

    OVO launched EV Everywhere to help accelerate the growth and move towards EVs in the UK. In the near future we will be adding to EV Everywhere with smart-charging and vehicle-to-grid propositions, crucial parts of how electric vehicles will be integrated into the energy system in future.
