EDP [acronym for Energias de Portugal, the Portuguese energy provider] is offering its customers a 20% discount on electricity tariffs to stimulate electric mobility. This is yet another way to pursue the strategy of bolstering this issue, together with the release of new solutions that contribute to the decarbonisation of society and to the development of more sustainable ecosystems.
By accepting this new offer, EDP Comercial’s customers who own electric vehicles will benefit from a 20% discount on their household electricity consumption during the night hours, as well as a 20% discount in charging stations, away from home.
“The advertising campaign that promotes this offer, in line with EDP Comercial’s new positioning, is meant to symbolise a future in which this corporate group believes: an electric and sustainable future, to which EDP will continue to respond with further solutions anticipating the needs of its customers”, declared the company in a press release. The campaign, which taps into the creativity of Solid Dogma, positions electric mobility as the main focus of the company’s stated concerns.
The new offer is another step in EDP’s commitment in this field and follows the release of solutions such as EDP Wallbox – accessible by means of a monthly subscription charge of 12,90€ –, which incorporates the re:dy system, enabling a more efficient consumption management and a greater control of the contracted capacity. Linked to this field, in EDP’s offerings portfolio also figures the EV.X app, designed to counsel future electric vehicle users, and the partnership established for the installation of 30 new charging points on BP’s gas stations.
“In the corporate sector, the greater emphasis goes to the electrification of our customers’ vehicle fleets, which involves, besides a set of several other solutions, the creation of an exclusive charging infrastructure”, adds the Portuguese energy provider. Also in development is a technology that will solve the problem of charging electric vehicles in private condominiums, not only in what concerns energy consumption, but also regarding an efficient charge management.
Recently, EDP took a further step in promoting intelligent mobility when it made known the partnership set with Emov, a carsharing service with a fleet entirely consisting of 100-percent electric vehicles.
EDP has been establishing itself as a fundamental player in promoting electric mobility not only in Portugal, but also in all the remaining geographical areas where the company is presently active. At the national level, EDP is still focusing on extending its charging stations network, where, since 2017, more than 600MW of energy was supplied, in over 50 thousand charging events. In Brazil, together with BMW, EDP launched the longest electrical corridor in Latin America, being now possible to travel from Rio de Janeiro to São Paulo in an electric vehicle. In Spain, also, the Portuguese energy provider continues to invest in expanding its charging points network, which includes already more than 80 stations.
