Berlin, 7 December 2020 – The partners of the Ultra-Fast Charging Venture Scandinavia and eMobility specialist Hubject have joined forces to make their ultra-fast charging sites available on one EV-charging application across three bordering countries: Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. Forty-eight ultra-fast charging sites (150kW+) will be connected with Hubject’s intercharge platform, the world’s largest cross-provider charging network, further enabling long-distance travel over Scandinavia.
Ultra-Fast Charging Venture Scandinavia, established by German E.ON and the danish eMobility Service Provider Clever, is a charge point operator, that has the vision to provide more ultra-fast charging stations and better customer experience for EV drivers across Scandinavian borders.
By cooperating with Hubject, the joint venture significantly extends the influence of its eMobility network, providing a long-distance charging infrastructure with a connection to an eRoaming platform.
End customers will quickly drive through Scandinavia, using only one application. As such, the user will be able to charge their car in all charging stations of the Ultra-Fast Charging Ventures Scandinavia network through Hubject’s intercharge platform, thus widely expanding the mobility of eMobility customers in all Ultra-Fast Charging Ventures countries.
Mathias Wiecher, Co-Managing Director of Ultra-fast Charging Venture Scandinavia ApS says:
“Providing easy access to our stations for all customers is a fundamental need to accelerate electric mobility across Scandinavia. Cooperating across country borders, industries, and partners, to the ultimate benefit to the end-customer is a necessity to propel E-Mobility into the center stage of transportation.”
Casper Kirketerp-Møller, Co-Managing Director of Ultra-fast Charging Venture Scandinavia ApS adds: “It’s also about making it easier for people to choose to go electric, by removing the elements of complexity which are within our power to change. One element of complexity for the end customer is understanding who has access to what. Therefore, we are happy to have signed up with Hubject, opening our network to all players sharing our philosophy.”
Christian Hahn, CEO of Hubject GmbH, explains: “We are thrilled to work closely with E.ON and Ultra-Fast Charging Venture Scandinavia to enable emission-free mobility with this one-of-a-kind mobility partnership. The opportunity to give every EV driver access to a long-distance charging network is invaluable and will help fostering the adoption of electric vehicles further.”
