Berlin, July 4, 2017 – Berlin-based Hubject GmbH is a new member of AEDIVE, the Spanish Cluster for the Boosting and Development of the Electric Vehicle market (Asociación Empresarial para el Desarrollo e Impulso del Vehículo Eléctrico, in Spanish). With its eRoaming platform Hubject connects charging station operators and emobility service providers in real-time, in order to provide electric vehicle drivers with customer-friendly access to charging infrastructure.
Hubject already connects more than 280 companies in 24 countries throughout Europe, Asia, and Oceania via the intercharge network. Therewith Hubject created a unified international charging network that allows digital cross-provider access for EV drivers.
With the approval of the plan Movea 2017 the Spanish government strengthens its commitment towards electric mobility. As part of the support programme Spain will invest 14.6 million euros in the development of public charging points as well as the purchase of plug-in electric vehicles (PHEV) and battery electric vehicles (BEV).
The cooperation between AEDIVE and Hubject is a necessary step towards transnational communication about interoperability solutions, which are crucial to the successful deployment of charging infrastructure. It will encourage knowledge transfer, and strengthen competitiveness, research and development. AEDIVE proves its ambition to establish Spain as a strong player in the European emobility market.
“For us, working together with national associations and committees is essential. No one knows the local emobility market better than they do – the opportunities as well as challenges. By joining AEDIVE we also aim at sharing our experience in the field of interoperability and new value added services. Thus, we want to support national stakeholders to develop state-of-the-art charging solutions, which will meet customer needs.” says Hubject CEO Thomas Daiber.
In Spain, GIC (Gestores Inteligentes de Carga – Grupo ACS), Electromaps, Urbener, Estabanell Energia, Atos and Circontrol are already partners of the intercharge network.
Hubject GmbH was founded in 2012 by leading companies from the energy, technology and automotive industries. The shareholders are the BMW Group, Bosch, Daimler, EnBW, innogy, Siemens and the Volkswagen Group. The company’s eRoaming platform connects charging station operators and emobility service providers in real-time, in order to give electric vehicle drivers easy and customer-friendly access to the charging infrastructure. Hubject does not operate any charging stations itself, but enables the smooth exchange of data in the background via the intercharge charging network. More than 280 companies across the world use the platform, including manufacturers of electric vehicles, energy providers, mobility service providers and telecommunications companies.
AEDIVE is a Spanish business association for the boosting and development of the electric vehicle market, an innovative enterprise grouping that gathers the whole value chain of the electric vehicle industrial and technological sector with the following purposes: “the management, representation, defence and coordination of the common interests of its associated members, promoting and enhancing competitiveness of the sector with regard to all of the EV value chain, in order to face any challenge and opportunity emanating from the implementation of the electric vehicle by boosting research, development and innovation in the products and services by its members,” as reflected in its statutes. AEDIVE is thus a non-profit innovative association for the boosting and development of the electric vehicle market, independent from the government and with representatives from all points in the EV value chain, which makes the association the valid intermediary for public authorities and the market as a whole regarding this issue.
