Australia and EVs
Australia isn’t exactly Norway. It’s not famous for its amazing transition to electrified vehicles. Nor do people know it for its government set on making sure emissions decrease quickly. In spite of those factors, Australians have wanted EVs for years. The low supply of EVs to the Australian market is slowly changing. With it (and to support it) comes an ever-increasing demand for EV charging stations across the country. These are all reasons why Noodoe has long been interested in working with EV charging partners in Australia.
Enter on the scene, Sam Moran, director of Commercial EV Chargers (CEVC) in Australia. He sees that Australia in the last two years has seen incredible year-on-year EV sales growth. Moran said, “I noticed there seemed to be a lack of simple solutions for businesses to provide EV charging solutions and services to EV customers.” To meet that need, CEVC focuses on supplying simple, cost-effective, and intuitive EV charging solutions. His goal is to keep businesses from worrying about their EV charging management. That way, they can focus on what they do best instead.
Noodoe and CEVC
Noodoe’s mission is an international one: “to accelerate the world’s transition to zero-emission electric vehicles by providing advanced mission-critical technologies that power EV charging networks worldwide.” Our values align perfectly with Moran’s vision for CEVC’s position in the Australian EV charging market. This is why he reached out to us.
Now, Noodoe and CEVC are collaborating closely in Australia. Our recent strategic partnership focuses on providing an optimal user experience through Noodoe EV OS to users in both Australia and New Zealand. Moran has over ten years in the IT industry. He said he was “able to recognize and appreciate a great user experience, both from end-user, and administrative perspectives – and Noodoe EV OS certainly delivers.”
What’s it like working with Noodoe?
At Noodoe, we strive to make our relationships mutually beneficial. We want our partners to receive the support they need to carry out their business goals. With Moran in Australia, that has meant collaborating with Noodoe to devise new solutions to suit market needs. “In my experience, that takes the relationship much further towards a true partnership, when compared to a standard supplier relationship,” Moran said.
GOLDEN SANDS ON THE BEACH
At Main Beach on the Gold Coast, neighboring Surfers Paradise, sits Golden Sands on the Beach. It offers private beach access and gorgeous views of the ocean. Golden Sands recently finished major refurbishment of the building and its apartments. The construction coincided with the great tourism challenges wrought by the Covid-19 Pandemic. As the Golden Sands team prepared for the renovation, it chose to meet another challenge it had recently faced.
Leading up to construction, both permanent residents and temporary stay guests have increasingly asked about EV charging. So, the team reached out to CEVC for an easy, manageable solution. CEVC suggested the Noodoe AC7P EV charger, powered by Noodoe EV OS. The team at Golden Sands was impressed with the simple and elegant user experience – as simple as Scan (the QR code), Pay, and Charge – and with the level of automation Noodoe EV OS enables. The system requires no hands-on management or monitoring. All of this allows the Golden Sands team to focus on running their business, supporting their residents and guests, and leaving the EV charger solution and management to CEVC and Noodoe.
With Queensland now opening its borders, the Golden Sands team is ready for an influx of travelers to make the most of their summer on the beach. Thanks to CEVC and Noodoe, this beautiful corner of Australia is now also ready to support EV owner residents and guests with their EV charging requirements too.
FIRST IN AUSTRALIA
This AC7P charger was the first Noodoe EV station to go live in Australia. We’re both pleased and proud to have had this experience with CEVC. According to Moran, “Our experience with the hardware installation and commissioning process was fantastic, along with the support from the team at Noodoe.”
CEVC and Noodoe are not only focussed on providing EV charging solutions for small businesses and residential, hotel accommodations. They also have solutions for shopping centers and shared parking spaces. Not to mention end-to-end solutions for dealerships, fleets, and DC fast charger networks. CEVC and Noodoe believe one of the best ways to work towards accelerating EV adoption is to support businesses. They do this by providing the tools needed to simplify the transition to offering EV customers and residents EV charging services that suit their needs. Both CEVC and Noodoe are looking forward to a long and successful partnership in Oceania.
With EV adoption accelerating rapidly – particularly in Australia and New Zealand – there will be a large part to play for innovative companies like Noodoe and CEVC. These companies focus on simplifying and enhancing the EV charging experience and on assisting businesses and customers with a smooth transition to electric transportation. Says Moran, “I’m pleased to be partnering with Noodoe on the journey ahead.” So are we, Sam. So are we!
