Making Electric Vehicle Adoption Accessible for All

The UK is on a mission to phase out petrol and diesel cars as part of its commitment to reach net-zero carbon emissions. However, for this ambitious goal to be realised, robust and accessible EV charging infrastructure is crucial. This is where Urban Fox comes in - an innovative EV chargepoint operator determined to make the switch to electric vehicles convenient and inclusive for everyone in the UK.

Pioneering Unobtrusive, Convenient Charging Solutions

Urban Fox's flagship product is the UEone - a revolutionary pop-up chargepoint that disappears flush into the ground when not in use. This innovative design offers fast charging without cluttering pavements or obstructing pedestrians, making it ideal for urban environments where space is at a premium.

By focusing on providing charging facilities near homes and workplaces, Urban Fox is removing a significant barrier to EV adoption - the lack of accessible charging for those without private driveways or garages. Their mission is to ensure no one is left behind in the transition to cleaner transportation.

Scaling Infrastructure with Strategic Partnerships

Urban Fox is a partnership between Balfour Beatty Investments (BBI), the international infrastructure investor, and Urban Electric Networks, a British EV chargepoint operating company.

Urban Fox combines Urban Electric Networks’ innovative and entrepreneurial spirit with Balfour Beatty’s unmatched scale, skill, and capability in delivering complex, multi-site infrastructure projects. The result is the rapid deployment of accessible charging networks across the UK.

Empowering the Platform with Bespoke Software

As Urban Fox's technology partner, Add Jam has played an instrumental role in developing the software that powers their charging network. Our team has delivered:

  • A feature-rich mobile app built with React Native, allowing users to easily locate chargers, initiate and pay for charging sessions, and track their EV's charging status in real-time. This app is available on iOS and Android.
  • A robust Ruby on Rails backend API that handles chargepoint management, user authentication, payment processing, and integration with third-party services like energy suppliers and mapping providers.
  • Custom IoT integrations to enable communication between the UEone chargers and the Urban Fox platform
  • A powerful admin portal for Urban Fox staff to oversee the network, manage users, and access insightful analytics.
  • Multi-language support powered by OpenAI's API for seamless localization of the app content.
  • Comprehensive integration to support multiple OCPI compliant back offices

By leveraging cutting-edge technologies and agile development methodologies, we've helped Urban Fox build a platform that is scalable, user-friendly, and primed for future growth.
