The most valid and innovative solution for today and tomorrow

According to the REA jury, Virta’s digital charging platform and the end-to-end charging solution offered to clients enable a rapid transition to e-mobility reducing transport emissions and connecting electric vehicles and renewable energy production in a cost-effective way. The judges recognised Virta for having the most valid and innovative solution by utilising an existing asset base that brings about advantages for all its participants.

 “Getting recognised by an industry expert jury at one of the world’s most competitive markets is a result of the pioneering work that Virta has done since its founding in 2013. Not only do our market-leading energy management capabilities enable charging point owners to optimise the installation, infrastructure and electricity costs today, but also guarantee their investments are already “futureproof” with the regulatory requirements regarding energy flexibility and demand response.

With the Virta Virtual Power Plant program, backed up by Business Finland as part of the M85€ funding round closed earlier this year, we are determined to extend our lead in this category by commercialising V1H, V2G and other key technologies for the charging point owners”, says Mr. Eemil Rauma, project director of the Virta Virtual Power Plant programme.”
