Great! You have an electric vehicle

By driving electric you are making a big contribution to the fight against climate change. However, the energy charging your car is not as green as you may think. The share of fossil-free depends on the weather and fluctuates through the day.

When the sun goes down or the wind stops blowing, the green electricity your were promised is replaced by electricity generated from fossiel fuels like natural gas or coal. Fortunately, otherwise you couldn't drive any further. But it also means your electric vehicle is emitting more CO2 than needed. And we're going to solve this together!

What can I do?
A good day - 53% fossil-free electricityA bad day - 11% fossil-free electricity

Optimise with CO2-Smart Charging

Green Caravan helps you to unlock every kilowatthour of savings potential from your electric car. Our app gives you insight in the CO2-emissions of your charging sessions, and informs you when it's the best time to charge your car. And if you have a Tesla you can make your car charge automatically at the right time via the app.

With our smart data we can tell you at which moment of the day the share of fossil-free electricity is largest in the electricity grid. So you know when it is the best time to charge your car. You can save up to 50% of CO2 on a single day!

User testimonials

I had no idea how much CO2 one can save by choosing the right time to charge an EV. Good to know!

– Yona, Tesla S driver

Now I know when the percentage green electricity is the largest and I charge at that moment. That feels good.

– Matthijs, early EV adopter

If I now charge at a bad time from CO2-perspective, it gives me a slight feeling of guilt. This app really has an impact!

– Kees, drives a Tesla 3
