Siemens and Danish EV charging platform provider Monta have partnered to boost the roll out of charging infrastructure across Europe.
Siemens will use the Monta Charge Point Management System (CPMS) as an operating system to manage its own fleet and charging points, as well as to provide its charger customers with a fully-fledged system.
The partnership enables Siemens to become a one-stop-shop solutions provider of e-mobility services to corporate fleet operators alongside its IoT-enabled hardware and software and services for AC and DC charging from 11 kW to 300 kW for a broad range of applications.

- Heliox buy for eBus and eTruck ultra fast charging
By using Monta’s CPMS as an operating system, Siemens aims to build a pan-European infrastructure for corporate fleet and facility manager.
The CPMS supports charge point operation, including load balancing, charger availability (e.g., private/public), charger accessibility (e.g., reservation), and pricing.
The operating system includes fleet management, smart access rights, and automatic home reimbursement. It also offers multiple payment options (Apple Pay Google Pay, credit card, etc.) for drivers. Siemens offers the solution as a managed service and takes care of setting up and monitoring the system on behalf of the customers. A mobile app with enhanced functionalities creates a convenient charging experience.
“We’re excited to be working together with Monta, integrating their innovative, feature-filled software into our offerings. This supports our ambitions to further expand EV charging infrastructure”, said Markus Mildner, CEO of eMobility at Siemens Smart Infrastructure.
“We’re proud to be working together with a well-renowned company like Siemens who has been making a long-lasting positive impact on our society for decades. Together, we can accelerate the buildout of a pan-European charging network where EV drivers and charging point owners alike experience a smooth EV charging experience,” said Casper Rasmussen, CEO, CTO & Co-founder of Monta.
