The company’s services help implement and optimise zero emissions transport fleets and networks for automotive manufacturers, governments, municipalities, fleet operators and charging infrastructure providers.

Their tool “BetterFleet” enables users to select suitable electric or lower emission vehicles from the list of vehicles available in the market. Stakeholders can also compare various vehicles and the available charging infrastructure and generate a report for their business case, making it easier to make decisions.

Evenergi also has solutions for Energy & Charging infrastructure planning and fleet analytics (forecasting & accounting emissions, battery use, KPIs etc.) and provides complete energy solutions for Bus Depots. Chemi Tech specializes in Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure management, civil & electrical infrastructure management and O&M operations. The new company, formed through Evenergi investing in Chemi Tech, will be a combination of the names of both the companies.

The new venture will bring the BetterFleet software platform and significant advisory services in zero emissions transport to the Indian market. The entity also brings a range of capital partners to develop build, own and operate charging infrastructure, says the firm. Evenergi also has been working a lot with OEMs and was awarded a project with BYD recently wherein their analysis platform will be used for arrivals in different markets.

The company will be focusing on acquiring clients like municipalities, state transport agencies, automotive manufacturers, city transport corporations, public sector units and distribution companies. The company’s partners will use the BetterFleet platform to enable the leasing out the entire bus fleet to the stakeholders, thereby, reducing their requirements of high initial capex. This
will encourage more organisations to switch to e-mobility.

Speaking on occasion, Daniel Hilson, Founder of Evenergi remarked, “The Indian market is fully committed to zero emissions transport future, and we are excited to be working a strong local partnership to help to accelerate this change, bringing world best practice software and experience with major transit authorities, operators , municipalities and OEMs and then work with a fantastic local partner and our new local staff to ensure that the solutions work in the highly challenging and unique Indian context.”

Akarsh Gupta, Director, ChemiTech added that, “Evenergi is one of the most promising company in the E-mobility space and has done some tremendous work in this segment across 4 continents. We welcome them to be a part of the Indian growth story and look forward to becoming a leading player in the E-mobility space along with them. The solutions being provided by them will make the electric fleets very efficient & will become really powerful tools for all the stakeholders.”

Vijay Singh Shekhawat, Director (Major Infrastructure & Urban Development), Australia Trade & Investment Commission also commented, “With changing dynamics in the EV space, India now presents a far greater opportunity for Australian businesses in the upcoming areas. Setting up a base in India either on their own or through the apt joint ventures / partnerships (like Chemitech Group) to actively partake in developing and executing business opportunities is the key. I look forward to seeing some good commercial outcomes from this venture.”
