Berlin/ Shanghai, October 1st 2018 – The charging networks Hubject and Star Charge China have now begun working together. With this collaboration, the companies are looking to drive the global development of open, customer-oriented charging networks for electric vehicles. The charging infrastructure expert Star Charge will bring its network of 20.000 charging points to Hubject’s cross-provider charging network, becoming the first Chinese partner to join the network, and thus open the network up to other market participants. In turn, the Berlin-based eMobility pioneer Hubject, which is now also active in the USA and China, will help Star Charge to enter the European market.
The collaboration will accelerate further market development in relation to eMobility and support the emergence of standardised market models worldwide. This is entirely in keeping with Hubject’s vision, which is to enable all drivers of electric vehicles to charge their vehicle as easily as possible wherever they are. With the help of Hubject, Star Charge will bring its considerable experience from China, the world’s largest eMobility market, to Europe, where it will set a positive course for development. Together, Hubject and Star Charge are building the world’s largest international network with a total of over 100.000 charging points.
Hubject has been operating in China for almost a year. The company has its own office in Shanghai. The new collaboration with Star Charge is the first key milestone of Hubject’s activities in China.
‘We are pleased about the collaboration with Hubject, as we can now offer convenient access to our network to even greater numbers of people, both in China and in Europe,’ says Shao Danwei, CEO Star Charge.
‘In Star Charge, we have found the perfect partner in China who will help us to push on with our vision of customer-oriented charging in this very important market,’ says Christian Hahn, CEO Hubject.
