The partners say this new product offering eliminates large up-front payments and enables streamlined deployment of charging networks for fleets, retail, multi-unit dwellings, and other large commercial properties.

The CaaS solution will focus on charging and infrastructure and public sector customers, EV solution providers, vehicle manufacturers, fleet operators, and other industry participants, to provide turnkey EV charging solutions with minimal cost and impact to customers. 

Subscribers will pay a monthly subscription fee over a fixed time instead of paying costs upfront, freeing up capital for other core priorities. Additionally, the CaaS solution is technology-agnostic with respect to EV charger original equipment manufacturers. Consequently, customers will have flexibility to choose EV chargers from various manufacturers that will best fit their needs across their real estate portfolios.

Customers will also have the option to include solar, battery energy storage, and other distributed energy products, drawing from Brookfield’s capabilities as a developer, owner, and operator of renewable energy assets. With the depth of the combined offering, each project will have a custom-tailored solution for each customer.
