Bia is a software company focused on deploying critical technology for the electric vehicle (EV) charging industry. Bia has developed and commercialized EV charging software tools for infrastructure planning, data management, monitoring, optimization, and grid services. Their technology optimizes EV charging for the cheapest and greenest charge, smoothest loads, best integration with other energy systems, and lowest battery degradation. Bia’s proprietary technology is hardware agnostic, white-labeled, and designed with easy to deploy API access. Their intelligence layer can deliver on three core services offered by Bia: Business Intelligence, Simulations and Forecasting, and Optimisation. The accuracy and robustness of Bia’s technology have allowed them to win multiple tenders from Spain’s government to manage Madrid and Barcelona’s electric bus systems.
