Ohme dynamic smart charging technology for EVs now in Australia

EV charging company Ohme is launching its award-winning technology and residential EV chargers to drivers in Australia.

Building on Ohme’s success in the UK and Ireland, where it is the fastest-growing electric vehicle charging company, Ohme is introducing the new ePod to enable Australian EV drivers to charge smarter, greener and cheaper at home thanks to its dynamic integration. With Wi-Fi connectivity, the ePod has been developed by Ohme specifically for the Australian market.

As sales of EVs in Australia enjoyed a rise of 46 per cent in the first quarter of this year compared to 2023, the Ohme ePod’s combination of API integration for EVs, solar compatibility, flexibility with all low-rate tariffs and built-in load balancing is sure to appeal to those moving to an electric vehicle for the first time.

“Ohme’s unique technology and software has seen us enjoy rapid growth in the UK and Europe and we’re pleased to be able to introduce the ePod to EV drivers in Australia,” said Reece Davis from Ohme Australia.

“We’re looking forward to bringing Ohme’s renowned low cost and low CO2 flexible charging capability to EV drivers in Australia at a highly competitive price. We’re sure that the ePod’s benefits of API integration with EVs, solar compatibility and excellent local customer service with charger installers across Australia will enable it to stand out.”

Ohme’s dynamic smart charging technology can connect with the national grid in real time to automatically adjust its charging allowing Ohme customers to take full advantage of off-peak tariffs.

Charging a Tesla Model Y Long Range with an 81kWh battery on a full charge with an Ohme smart charger on an off-peak tariff, such as OVO’s The EV Plan, could cost just $6.48*.

Ohme is the official charger provider for the Volkswagen Group and Polestar in both the UK and Ireland as well as Mercedes-Benz and Hyundai in the UK and Volvo Cars in Ireland. Ohme has also been named as Fast Track Company of the Year in the 2023 UK Green Business Awards and Best Chargepoint Manufacturer in the 2024 Irish EV Awards.
