Eco-Movement, a Netherlands-based provider of EV charging station data, has closed a Series A funding round. Investors included Dutch VC firm Ponooc and Dow Jones, a well-known provider of news and business information.
As an independent B2B data platform, Eco-Movement provides charge point location and pricing information to navigation providers, online maps and fleet operators. Clients include Tesla, TomTom, Shell, Apple and HERE.
Many EV-related companies need accurate and complete data on public charging stations in North America and Europe. Eco-Movement “helps solve this challenge by working together with charge point operators to aggregate their data, including price and real-time availability, into a uniform, accurate and complete database.”
Roderick van den Berg, CEO of Eco-Movement, said, “The relevance of our data is increasing every day. With the support of both Ponooc and Dow Jones, we will further improve our product to help charge point operators with their visibility on mobile and in-car maps and support the EV industry with the best data possible.”
“Our investment in Eco-Movement is a strong complement to our existing expertise in the renewable energy and sustainability arena,” said Almar Latour, CEO of Dow Jones. “Dow Jones’s commitment to increasing expertise in this arena will help our customers make informed decisions as they navigate major energy-related changes in the world as well as their own energy transitions.”
“Eco-Movement has become the trusted source of charge point data in Europe and is ready to expand to other markets,” said Friso Bensdorp, Investment Director at Ponooc.
