Mina Energy partners with The Algorithm People to help EV adoption

EV charging

Mina Energy and The Algorithm People are forming a partnership to help fleet operators adopt and manage electric vehicles (EVs).

Based in Sheffield, Mina Energy helps encourage fleet adoption and management of EVs with its EV charging platform.

The Algorithm People provide data-based analysis to support investment in EVs, with fleet optimisation software to improve return on investment (RoI), once vehicles are deployed.

Chris Dalrymple, co-founder and director of Mina, said: “By partnering with The Algorithm People we can create an even more compelling proposition for fleet operators.

“Together we can offer a fresh perspective on the entire process, from identifying the right vehicles to electrify, and optimising their use; to simplifying EV charging, energy billing and employee expenses.”

A third (34%) of fleet decision-makers want much more supplier support to transition to EVs, according to a survey by Volkswagen Financial Services (VWFS).

Mina’s EV fuel card enables employees to charge EVs and vans at home, then claim the costs back from employers.

The Algorithm People analyses a fleet’s existing data to identify which vehicles and routes are most suited to electrification.

Colin Ferguson, CEO of The Algorithm People, said: “The UK has ambitious targets for electric vehicle adoption, but barriers still exist for businesses to adopt EVs.

“Innovative solutions from companies like Mina help to remove those barriers and will accelerate fleet electrification.”

Mina and The Algorithm People are holding a joint webinar, the ‘Next Steps to Your Green Fleet’, which takes place on November 11 at 2pm.
