Major charging network EVBox is now connected to GIREVE’s roaming platform
EVBox, a leading global manufacturer of electric vehicle charging stations and charging management software, is now connected to GIREVE’s platform, opening its charging points to GIREVE’s e-Mobility Service Provider partners.
Paris, Amsterdam, 1 October 2019 – With over 28,000 EVBox connectors publicly available across more than 30 countries, EVBox is offering one of the largest AC-charging networks in Europe. EVBox helps electric drivers get access to charging infrastructure wherever they are. Founded in 2010, EVBox has now grown to be a global player with offices across Europe and North America.
“We believe roaming agreements are highly important, because EV drivers should have the best possible experience wherever they are. Access to charging points whilst on the road is a very important part of this. Both in the daily commute, as on international trips. Regardless of which eMSP (e-Mobility Service Provider)-subscription a driver has, they should be able to charge on any station. Roaming is enabling this vision!”
Connecting to GIREVE enables Charge Point Operators to open their stations to new users. Gathering leading e-mobility service providers in Europe, GIREVE helps ease drivers’ charging by connecting Charge Point and Mobility operators. This new connection with EVBox adds a major charging network to the roaming platform that already gathers 60 000 charging points from different networks across Europe.
“It is extremely important to see a European charging leader send a clear sign of network openness, and we are happy to contribute to this move. It is a must-have to overcome a common obstacle to e-mobility adoption.”
EVBox is expecting exponential growth in the coming years, especially since 2020 is considered a tipping point with many large OEMs launching new electric models and battery prices dropping sharply. The company is expected to grow to 500+ employees globally by the end of 2019, while launching many new hardware (both AC and DC) and software products to meet customer needs. All EVBox products will also become increasingly smart and connected, as the company is integrating Smart Charging technologies and enabling its stations to communicate easily with other smart appliances.
“We are happy to partner up with GIREVE. It’s a pleasure to work with them - due to the fact that they are reliable and dedicated to offering the best possible experience to the EV drivers, as are we.”
To support the rapid growth of electric mobility, GIREVE brings industry operators together: charging point operators, car manufacturers, energy suppliers, public institutions… GIREVE is an integrated platform offering innovative services that enable mobility operators to easily build partnerships.
