OUR MISSION

ENSURING EVERYONE BENEFITS
FROM THE ENERGY TRANSITION

About Us

Trojan Energy was formed in 2016 with one mission: to ensure everyone benefits from the energy transition.

With total focus on enabling the switch to eMobility, we developed the Trojan Electric Vehicle Charging System. A system that finally offers an equal chance for EV drivers without a driveway to charge effectively at home, while eliminating residual clutter on the pavement. A system that doesn't require municipal authorities to zone off parking spaces and gives network operators the ability to manage power demand in real time. A system smart enough to offer a convenient way to charge that's green, cheap, immediate - or a combination of all three - at up to 22kW. A system that delivers flat and flush chargepoints in hubs of fifteen, or single units powered by the home, to leave the streetscape uncluttered for everyone. We want to give drivers the confidence and practicality they need to go electric.

We're going to do our bit for the global effort to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality by supporting electrification and the transition to renewable energy. We’re doing this by addressing the lack of EV charging infrastructure within the urban environment.

We’re charging towards Net-Zero.

Win BEIS Beyond Off-Street SmartSTEP project.
SmartSTEP incentivises charging when electricity is at its cheapest (typically overnight) and uses renewable electricity provided by Octopus Energy. Crucially the project will build resilience into the local and national electricity grid with full DCC function implementation allowing secure and rapid demand management requests from electricity network operators and national grid if required, helping to balance & protect the electricity distribution network.

Five Trojan Energy charge points have been installed in Mortimer Road for a small group of trial participants to carry out real-world testing of the prototype system. The full trial of 150 charge points across Brent and Camden will then go live later in the year.
