PredictEV was created to support Volta Charging’s commerce-centric, electric vehicle charging network and is now available to corporate, public agency, government, consulting and utility organisations, like Southern Company, which has made a multi-year commitment, planning to meet the coming demand for EV charging infrastructure development.

Volta Charging builds and operates a US EV charging network that was founded on the premise that the electrification of mobility is likely to be a transformational shift. It is based around capturing new spending habits that are expected to result from the shift to electric vehicles and seeks to transform the fuelling industry by building open-network charging stations in locations where drivers already spend their time and money, including grocery stores, pharmacies and other retail locations.

Southern Company, which serves more than 4.3 million electric power customers in Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi, expects to use the product to guide its plans to meet rising EV demand and to create new EV product offerings for its customers. This commitment expands upon Volta’s existing collaboration with Southern Company’s subsidiary, Alabama Power, to support data-driven EV infrastructure planning in its service territory.

“Data and AI influence every aspect of Volta’s business - from driver experience, to media strategy, to network development” said Praveen Mandal, Chief Technology Officer at Volta Charging. “We are excited to share our data-driven insights and foresights with partners like Southern Company that are as passionate about driving the EV market forward as we are. These partnerships have the capacity to transform the decision making that underpins our joint mission of creating a carbon-free transportation future.”

Using advanced AI and analytics, PredictEV aggregates disparate data sets to turn them into actionable insights for EV stakeholders. The proprietary, patented-pending product analyses local mobility, demographic, corporate, and site-specific data at scale to identify key planning drivers such as suitable vehicle charging locations, the right mix of charging infrastructure (Level 2 v. DC Fast Charging), and expected EV adoption in a particular geography.

PredictEV is now available to a variety of EV stakeholders, including corporations, state and local governments, Departments of Transportation, electric power utilities, and other EV stakeholders who are responding to the increase in EV adoption and working to support transportation electrification within their jurisdictions.
