Diode Fleetpower Announces the Launch of its Innovative Solution to Accelerate Fleet Electrification

Diode Fleetpower is a startup transforming the vehicle electrification process for businesses by simplifying and consolidating each step.


London, England / Friday 2nd August 2019 - Diode Fleetpower today announces the launch of its new turnkey service to dramatically simplify the fleet electrification process for businesses. Diode Fleetpower works with clients to understand what their requirements are, helps them set out their electrification strategy, obtains quotes from industry partners, presents an independent set of options with recommendations and then instructs implementation.


Businesses have a fantastic understanding of traditionally-fueled fleet vehicles; however, when making the switch to an electric fleet, there are many extra layers of complexity to the procurement process. Businesses need to consider the types of electric vehicles they need, charging infrastructure required, software to manage their fleet, where their energy comes from and the types of maintenance package they need. Until now, there has been no single solution across all these areas. That’s where Diode Fleetpower comes in.


Diode Fleetpower currently works with over 20 leading suppliers to create bespoke hardware, software, financing, installation, energy and maintenance packages. This allows them to present businesses with choices they didn’t know existed and ultimately connect the dots between the best technologies, services and products to electrify a fleet based on their individual requirements.


Diode Fleetpower’s 5-step approach has been developed to make the whole end-to-end process as simple as possible, ultimately making fleet electrification accessible and easier to implement.

  • Consultation - Diode Fleetpower helps to shape the client’s requirements, as well as providing expert advice and guidance on the process of setting up and running a fleet of EVs.

  • Strategise - Diode Fleetpower creates a bespoke electrification strategy for the client.

  • Tender - Diode Fleetpower shares the client’s requirements with its pool of carefully selected suppliers to obtain a selection of quotes.

  • Options - Diode Fleetpower presents clients with all the packages available to them, along with a recommendation.

  • Implementation - Diode Fleetpower instructs the successful supplier(s) to proceed with the implementation of the solution.


Jon Horsfield, CEO of Diode Fleetpower said: “We want to make it simpler for businesses to electrify their fleets by helping them make informed decisions, taking the hassle of procurement away, introducing them to innovative technologies and implementing a solution that best meets their needs - all wrapped up in one neat, simple package.”


“With our industry experience and supplier partnerships, we are a unique solution for businesses wanting to implement a green fleet strategy. Ultimately, our mission is to accelerate the electrification of fleets in order to reduce carbon emissions from businesses across the UK and beyond.”


Over the last 6 years, there has been a surge in demand for plug-in vehicles in the UK - from 3,500 new registrations in 2013 to more than 220,000 by the end of June 2019. The mid-2020s will see pure electric cars and vans reaching cost-parity with internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles and EV sales will overtake petrol and diesel by 2030.


Next year will be a huge turning point for the EV market. Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rates drop to 0%, thousands of new public rapid charging points will be installed and become universally accessible through contactless card payment, building regulations will change to account for charging infrastructure in all new homes and even more new EVs will be launched.
