We drive sustainable mobility by providing smart and scalable charging infrastructure and charging management software to electric vehicles around the world. With over 150,000 charging points across more than 70 countries, we help businesses and cities contribute to a future where everyday transport is emission-free. Founded in 2010, we stepped onto the scene when the market for electric vehicles was still in its infancy. Our founders predicted that demand for charging infrastructure would skyrocket and set their sights on a clear concept: a fully modular charging station that’s easy to use and that can stand the test of time. Thanks to our founders’ foresight and imagination, we became the sole provider of public charging infrastructure in cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Monaco. Meanwhile, we also played an active role in promoting smart charging technologies and roaming of charging infrastructure with industry partners and public organizations. In 2017, we were acquired by the energy utility company and global service provider, ENGIE, who identified us as a disruptive cleantech scale-up making an impact in the fast-growing electric mobility industry. In 2018, we acquired the ultra-fast charging station manufacturer, EVTronic, adding the first 1,000 fast-charging stations to our European network. Today, with projects running across Europe, North America, and South America, we’re launching our new generation of residential, commercial, public, and fast-charging solutions that will make electric vehicle charging more accessible than ever.
