Energy company bp has announced a new partnership with UK renewable energy supplier Pure Planet, launching a digital energy app aimed at support households and electric vehicle (EV) drivers.
The new platform offers smarter control of renewable home energy, EVs, batteries, smart heating and solar power. It is designed to help people manage their varied energy usage, while providing personalised insights into their energy consumption.
The smart phone app will provide estimates of emissions savings, real-time energy usage data and car battery status for EV drivers, and even the ability to link a conventional petrol or diesel car to the app to estimate the CO2 emissions you would have saved with an EV.
“Future energy services are more dynamic, personal and digital”, says Pure Planet co-founder and CEO, Andrew Ralston. “The new service will help people manage their energy better by giving them more information.
“By deepening our relationship with bp, we’re creating Pure Planet 2.0. We’re offering exciting new tech services and low carbon insights and are looking forward to sharing these with a wider audience.”
The service will initially be available to Pure Planet customers on the supplier’s app as well as online energy accounts from June.
