Route Monkey to further develop EV business under new appointment

Armitage joins Route Monkey from EDF Energy, where she was electric vehicle team manager for more than four years and was involved in a range of projects including the design and technical specification of the recharging infrastructure for the London 2012 Olympic Electric Vehicle Fleet.

Her new role will focus on positioning Route Monkey within the integrated transport and energy sector – a growing area where EV manufacturers and energy providers increasingly overlap, according to the firm. She will also lead or advise on key projects.

Route Monkey provides software solutions to clients including Alphabet’s AlphaElectric offering. It is also working with the Energy Saving Trust (EST) on a project to map out the optimal locations for EV rapid charge points in London; and with EST Scotland for its Switched on Fleets programme.

Armitage said: ‘Route Monkey has developed a truly innovative suite of products that have genuine potential to influence and accelerate the shift to a lower carbon world. I am delighted to be joining the company in this exciting new role and look forward to further developing the market for our unique software solutions.’
