Hyundai and Kia they decided to bet on green energy for their customers’ top-ups made through Charge myHyundai services and Kia Charge. Thanks to an agreement with Digital Charging Solutions (DCS), Hyundai and Kia customers will be able to drive their vehicle on battery knowing that the energy for charging will come exclusively from renewable sources.
Thus, using the green charging option of the e-mobility service provider Digital Charging Solutions (DCS), the two Korean manufacturers will ensure that, for each public charging session carried out by customers through their integrated pan-European service, a quantity of equivalent energy will be fed back into the grid as green electricity.
Hyundai and Kia are committed to using the so-called Guarantees of Origin (GO) to obtain the green attribute for the energy related to each charging session. This ensures that, for every recharge made using Charge myHyundai and Kia Charge, the equivalent amount of energy generated is fed back into the grid as green electricity.
In partnership with Digital Charging Solutions (DCS), both Charge myHyundai and Kia Charge offer access to a large public network with over 300,000 charging points in 29 European countries. Users of integrated public recharging services have access to the recharging points of all major operators through a single platform for simpler and easier use.
