Through this partnership, Volta Charging will provide its PredictEV tool to StreetLight customers needing analytics to place hundreds of thousands of EV chargers.

Volta Industries Inc. (Volta Charging) has entered a strategic partnership with StreetLight Data Inc. to use their combined analytics for the deployment of EV infrastructure. The companies say the partnership is intended to spur public sector agencies, utilities, transportation planners and engineering firms, among others, to accelerate EV adoption through Volta’s PredictEV SaaS solution and StreetLight’s mobility data.

PredictEV is a machine-learning tool that helps utilities, municipalities and companies predict electric vehicle adoption and demand for EV charging. Through this partnership, Volta Charging will provide its PredictEV tool to StreetLight customers needing analytics to place hundreds of thousands of EV chargers. StreetLight will also provide Volta Charging with opportunities to expand its market footprint across the U.S. through increased collaboration with transportation planners, engineering firms and public agencies focused on transportation electrification.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence play integral roles in optimizing the expansion of Volta Charging’s charging network, the company says. Ultimately, both StreetLight and Volta Charging say they want to build a charging network that is designed to deliver an optimal experience for drivers, to be capital efficient and to deliver the most electric miles per dollar invested.
