Tonik Energy provides professional end-to-end electrification services for domestic and commercial businesses. Tonik handles everything from service design and specifications, to installation and ongoing management of the EV charging infrastructure in the UK market.

“At Tonik Energy, we see electric vehicles and charging services as a big strategic growth area that has been prioritised within our business. We work to serve domestic consumers, fleets, and commercial companies, as well as public charging providers with bespoke charging solutions. A management cloud is, therefore, a strategic tool for our business,” comments Louise McCormack, Head of Products at Tonik Energy.

“We chose to work with Fortum for their reputation, reliability, and for their long experience in the charging business. Above all, we selected Fortum for their intuitive and user-friendly management cloud, complete with their white-labelled mobile application for our consumers. In addition to the reliability, we demand from all our business software, Fortum’s system allows intra-roaming within the networks also using the Fortum system in the UK and Ireland. This immediately extended our network presence, increasing its usability and findability for those who matter most: the end-users,” McCormack continues.

“Our mission is to make car charging easy, and we are thrilled to be working with the dedicated and committed team who share our mission at Tonik Energy,” says Maadh AL-sammarraie from Fortum Charge & Drive. “Tonik has excellent market presence and a decade of experience in the charging business. We are happy to support them and welcome the ninth member to our extended family of Charge Point Operators in the UK and Ireland!”
