Parkopedia and Regeny Partner to Expand EV Charge Point Coverage

by Madaline Dunn

UAE Parkopedia has announced a partnership with EV charging solutions provider Regeny to provide Middle East drivers with EV charge point data in their vehicle head units to simplify the process of locating chargers. 

According to the two parties, the partnership will initially see UAE charging data available in cars from one of the “premium global automakers,” providing drivers with access to half of the UAE’s EV chargers. 

Later this year, Middle Eastern drivers will gain access to aggregated charging data in additional markets, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Morocco and Jordan.

Regeny shared that it offers access to more than 50 active charging sites and aggregates nearly 2,000 charging ports across the UAE, with more than 500 deployed within the last year. 

Its OCPI roaming platform enables smart mobility and fleet owners to access the UAE’s aggregated charging network, with expansion into Saudi Arabia planned before the end of this year. 

Parkopedia is also working with numerous CPOs to extend its charging POI data coverage across “increasingly important” markets, such as India, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Chile. 

This partnership with Regeny follows data from the latest Parkopedia Global Driver Survey, which found that 91 per cent of EV drivers find locating a public EV charge point stressful. 

Jaap van den Hoek, Global Head of Partnerships at Parkopedia, commented: “We recognise the importance of taking the stress out of locating public chargers for EV drivers across the world. 

“This is equally as important in emerging EV markets, such as the Middle East, which show strong signs of EV growth and we are delighted to be working with Regeny as its ambitious growth plans align with our mission of providing seamless connected car services to drivers around the globe.”

Meanwhile, Regeny Co-Founder and CEO Anish Racherla said: “Regeny is building a community of EV users and stakeholders making the shift to electric mobility seamless. Our collaboration with Parkopedia is the first in the region to enable charging information to be embedded in connected car ecosystems. This partnership will bring in an era of smart mobility for the UAE and Middle East.”
