Electric charging firm EVBox Group has installed 200,000 charging ports worldwide – doubling the figure from 12 months previously.
The company has also announced plans to become a public company on the New York Stock Exchange as it looks to scaling up its business in the future as part of the decarbonisation of the transport network.
The firm has also entered into agreements with partners including Scania, Carrefour supermarkets, Severn Trent, Unilever and PSA Group, amongst others. Additionally it has founded the Chargeup Europe Alliance to assist in the realisation of EU policies on EVs, and support investment in charging infrastructure and removing market barriers to growth.
Speaking about the continued growth of the company, Kristof Vereenooghe, CEO of EVBox Group, said: “I’m extremely confident that we’ll reach our goal of installing one million charge ports by 2023. In 2021, we’ll enhance our product development as a public company and continue to bring innovative and intelligent charging solutions to the market.”
Director of EU Policy at EVBox Group, Koen Noyens, said: “Despite Covid-19, last year has been an interesting year for Europe with strengthened emission targets set for the continent’s transport sector and EV sales continuing to boom. In March, together with ChargePoint and Allego, we founded ChargeUp Europe—an industry alliance that is growing rapidly and working toward a harmonized pan-European charging infrastructure market. It’s only by building an open and competitive market that we can deliver the best services for EV drivers, as well as infrastructure that’s accessible and user-friendly across Europe.”
