Driven by the rapid adoption of EVs across Europe, there is an increased demand for public infrastructure to provide quick and frictionless usage of charging stations to end customers.  Given the multitude of eMobility stakeholders building the EV charging infrastructure, a reliable and scalable connectivity layer is essential to provide better EV Driver experiences. Current solutions lack scalability, are expensive, and lead to poor data quality around charge point availability and charging fees. This is why we are excited to back Enapi, a Berlin-based connectivity platform for collaboration in the electric vehicle (EV) charging industry. It facilitates connections between Charge Point Operators and entities developing and providing digital charging solutions for consumers and businesses.  Founded by Jakob Kleihues (CEO) and Dennis Laumen (CTO), Enapi is building the transaction broker and clearing house for the electric vehicle (EV) charging industry to effectively connect Charge Point Operators and eMobility Service Providers. As an infrastructure layer company, it aims to tackle the challenges of technical interoperability.
On a mission to build the most secure, reliable, and scalable platform for stakeholder collaboration in the EV industry, Enapi empowers participants in the marketplace to adopt and expand the use of open protocols, thereby enhancing community collaboration and elevating the quality of data. The Enapi Transaction Broker enables EV charging transactions, using the OCPI standard to ensure seamless charging station connectivity.
