EV-Box Expanding Into Nordic Countries
January 31st, 2017 by James Ayre
The electric vehicle charging solutions giant EV-Box will be officially entering the Nordic markets — Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Iceland — in the near future, according to an email sent to CleanTechnica.
The center of operations for the Nordic EV-Box expansion will unsurprisingly be Norway + Denmark. This is unsurprising since the Norwegian electric vehicle market is one of the largest in the world — despite the country’s total population only being around that of a mid-sized city in most other parts of the world — and Denmark is another top EV market.
Notably, electric vehicle adoption has also been increasing in the neighboring country Sweden faster than most markets — no doubt part of the reason for the expansion extending into it as well.
EV-Box CEO Kristof Vereenooghe commented:
“EV-Box will take a lead in upgrading the current infrastructure with new, more intelligent charging stations. These will not only benefit the electric vehicle driver, but also the property or facility owners. The same mindset and approach will be applied to Sweden, Denmark and Finland accordingly.
“We want EV-Box Nordics to be a fast-growing Business Unit, showcasing its excellence in building smart technology and services, while working with our local partners. Electric vehicles drivers and site owners need to upgrade their charging technology and ensure they are future-proof. The technology needs to be ready for the new energy market as well as future electric vehicles.”
The official launch of EV-Box Nordics is slated for February 7th + 8th. It will occur at the Nordic EV Summit in Drammen, Norway.
