EDP Comercial relying on GreenFlux platform in Portugal
EDP Comercial, part of the energy firm EDP Group, has made a deal with GreenFlux to use their digital platform for intelligent charging. EDP’s main markets are Portugal, Spain, and Brazil, and the company says it offers e-mobility services to more than 50,000 EV drivers.
The agreement regards GreenFlux’s cloud-based platform, which EDP will use to offer end-to-end EV charging and energy management services, particularly for customers in Portugal and Spain. EDP has contracted over 3,500 charging points in Iberia and aims to have more than 7,000 in 2026.
The company adds it was looking for a “future-proof platform to expand its e-mobility network, enhance its customer services, improve smart grid capabilities, and help prepare future business cases”.
GreenFlux reportedly provides centralised, hardware-independent smart charging functions such as charging station and card management, roaming, payments and charging processing.
As for EDP, the partnership “arises to guarantee new functionalities for residential and business customers,” said Gonçalo Castelo Branco, Head of Smart Mobility, EDP Comercial.

“We are delighted to be offering the digital platform for EDP’s EV charging infrastructure requirements,” added Suthalan Gnanes, Managing Director and Chief Commercial Officer at GreenFlux. “EDP is among the major operators of electricity in Europe and a leader in innovation in the energy sector. We look forward to a long-term relationship with the utility.”
DKV Mobility acquired the Dutch software specialist in June 2021. Greenflux has since continued to serve potent partners such as Osprey in the UK, where Greenflux also took part in the Electric Nation project.
EDP, short for Energias de Portugal, is a Portuguese utility headquartered in Lisbon. It was founded in 1976 through the merger of 14 nationalised electricity companies. EDP Comercial offers charging and e-mobility services.
