EVBox, a leading provider of flexible and scalable electric vehicle charging solutions, and ON Power, the biggest energy provider in Iceland, have combined their efforts to electrify Reykjavik by providing charging infrastructure for EV drivers.
AMSTERDAM, April 20, 2021 — ON Power, the biggest energy provider in Iceland, produces and sells electricity in a responsible and environmentally friendly way. As a company leading the transition to an electrified transportation system in Iceland and helping to reduce the world's carbon footprint, ON Power shares many of EVBox's values.
Because Iceland has the second most electric vehicles per capita in the world, ON Power and EVBox have partnered to provide charging infrastructure for Icelandic EV drivers. 136 public EVBox charging ports have already been installed across 28 locations in and around Iceland’s capital. Over the coming months, a further 84 charging ports will be installed at the remaining sites outlined in the agreement. EVBox’s charging stations will become a prominent feature of the city and represent the forward-thinking attitude of Icelandic citizens.
ON Power has established a strong position in the energy solutions market and EVBox's technical expertise fits perfectly with its ambitions. Furthermore, the design and flexibility of EVBox solutions perfectly match ON Power’s determination to increase the accessibility of public EV charging infrastructure in Iceland. ON Power can now offer integrated EV charging solutions to the Icelandic commercial and public markets.
As the uncontested leader in EV charging infrastructure installation across Iceland, ON Power has embraced the implementation of innovative solutions across its network. Fast- and ultra-fast charging stations play key roles in the adoption of electric mobility, and with EVBox solutions, our EV charging offering in Reykjavik takes a huge step forward. The adoption of EVs has been particularly high among those who have the capacity to charge at their own lots. EVBox is helping us to provide charging options to those that don’t have that privilege.Berglind Ran Olafsdottir (CEO of ON Power)
