To take a step forward in Monta’s mission of playing a part in the green energy transformation and reducing the carbon emissions in the EV charging experience, Monta partnered with Electricity Maps to retrieve granular data. Electricity Maps data is integrated into the SmartCharging algorithms to allow users to optimize based on the carbon intensity of the grid or the share of renewables available.
By integrating with Electricity Maps data, Monta can use the forecast data to predict, optimize, and reduce the carbon emissions of each charge without compromising the user experience of its users. The ability to retrieve data for multiple countries across Europe in just one standardized API has been highly valuable as Monta scales its operations across countries.

In addition to the integration in the SmartCharging algorithms, Electricity Maps data enables Monta to create engaging insights for its users. At the end of each charge, users can review the carbon footprint of each single charging session. By showing the saved carbon emissions of each optimized charge, Monta aims to incentivize users to not only optimize based on price but to opt for a lower carbon footprint.
With targeted analytical insights as well as educational information on climate impact, users are guided toward creating a positive impact. Today, up to a third of all charges on the platform benefit from Electricity Maps data, making it an essential part of Monta’s SmartCharging feature.
Not only does this play an important step in creating awareness but it also enables a large number of users to actively cut their CO2 emissions. Without this partnership, a key differentiation feature would be missed by a large share of Monta’s users.
