DEA and Hubject jointly push for eMobility adoption in Denmark to increase emissions-free mobility
28.10.2021 – BERLIN The Danish Electric Vehicles Association, the largest Danish B2B EV association and Hubject, the leading interoperability platform for eMobility, joined forces to increase opportunities for Danish electric car drivers and EV market players by signing a Framework Agreement.
Denmark's Danish EV Association represents 60 companies that are interested in promoting the use of electric cars. Among its members are AURA Energi, Clever, DTU, E.ON, EVBox, Flexcharge, IONITY, Lidl Denmark, Power Fuel, Sargo, Spirii, Drivee, Prostrøm and Zapp mobility.
For a successful ramp-up of EVs in Denmark, the leading Scandinavian market players anticipate that there should be around 23,000 charging stations in the country by 2025. As the demand for electric cars in Denmark is expected to grow intensely, tight joint activities are required to further, and there will be many more. Denmark's EV industry is committed to ensuring that charging is smooth, simple, and comfortable to encourage drivers to purchase electric vehicles. Nine operators have signed the agreement that will cover about 95% of Denmark's entire public charging infrastructure.
The electric car industry plans to build 1,000 ultra-fast chargers, 2,000 fast chargers and 20,000 regular chargers over the next four years. If the number of cars in the country grows as anticipated, there will be a need for a reliable and well-connected network available for every driver.
Hubject's network includes around 400,000 charging stations connected to over 900 partners. The collaboration will increase the number of charging points available for EV drivers across the country. Danish EV association members support the principles of openness and neutrality and therefore work together with Hubject, an organization strongly representing these principles.
In addition to drivers, charging point operators and manufacturers of electric vehicles benefit from this collaboration. The operators will have the potential to increase their customer base and operate charging stations in remote areas. The increase in the number of stations will also positively impact the demand for electric cars, as charging will be available almost everywhere.
“We support the initiative by the alliance members to increase the number of charging stations and provide drivers with greater mobility. We believe that the results of our work together will benefit everyone in the market: customers, big players and small companies. The Alliance also supported us at intercharge Network Conference this year, and we are very honored to work with such innovative companies, associated at DEA.” said Christian Hahn, CEO of Hubject.
“Easy and simple access to chargers is absolutely crucial for drivers of EVs. Therefore, we are immensely proud to announce that we have joined forces with Hubject to increase opportunities for Danish electric car drivers and EV market players by signing a Framework Agreement” said Lærke Flader, CEO of Danish EV Alliance.
The Danish EV Alliance is an industry association who works to promote a better regulatory environment for mass roll out of EVs in Denmark. Members of DEA are charge point operators, energy companies, car importers, and other companies in the value chain around EVs.
