Ohme: Overview

Ohme is owned by Temporis Capital, a well established investment management firm, with a focus in the renewable energy and clean technology sectors.  Temporis has been involved in low carbon projects with an installed capacity of over 450 MWs. Certainly an impressive parent! 

Ohme ‘the intelligent EV charger’ business is leading the curve on innovation in regards to EV charging cables.  The company has identified an opportunity to create more value for the EV owner, by offering an EV charging cable that is ‘smart’.  Most electric vehicle charging cables in the market today can be charaterised as ‘dumb’, as the cables do not offer any further functionality, apart from charging.  

Ohme charging cables ushers ‘the future of EV charging to EV owners today

 The Ohme cable is conceived with the core concept of ‘interacting dynamically with the variability of electricity tariff pricing‘, such that, you the consumer, can achieve maximum savings, while charging your zero-emission electric car.  Now, that is smart!  By bringing the needs of the EV drivers to the forefront in regards to charging costs, Ohme has pushed the envelope on cable performance to a new level.  

The intelligent cable ‘chooses the cheapest available electricity’ to save you money.  Given that the majority of electric car charging is done at home, the ability to charge at the ‘right time, right amount and right price’, all from the convenience of the Ohme mobile app, is a certain winner for EV owners. The cable is fitted with a ‘brainbox’ that automatically scans for the cheapest tariff from your energy supplier.  The intelligent EV charging cable then charges the amount you need for your next journey.
