Fleet services: Innogy and DKV plan to establish a JV
RWE subsidiary Innogy and mobility service provider DKV are about to establish an e-mobility joint venture to offer Europe-wide services for commercial fleet operators. In an initial step, both companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding.
The venture, which still needs green light from responsible authorities, plans to implement a European-wide service for public charging among others. Thus, employees will be able to charge their cars regardless of the service provider, with costs billed as a single invoice.
“We anticipate a significant rise in electric mobility over the next couple of years, particularly within our business customer segment”, states Markus Dehn, Vice President of Product Management in Electric Mobility at Innogy. “This planned joint venture allows us to offer comprehensive service solutions with transparent billing for EV fleets throughout Europe in the near future. DKV is the optimal business partner for this project. This service will make electric driving even less complicated and more convenient, which also gives the customer a sense of security.”
