A few days back, the Dutch startup EVBox opened its official Lab Space in Amsterdam to drives sustainable mobility. During the Dutch eMobility Day, which took place this Monday in Warsaw, EVBox announced its expansion into Eastern Europe with a new office opening in Warsaw. This is the thirteenth global office opened since being founded in 2010 in the Netherlands.
Act on Electromobility and Alternative Fuels!
Poland’s “Act on Electromobility and Alternative Fuels,” introduced two years ago, outlined changes to accelerate the adoption of zero-emission transport.
The “Electromobility Counter,” operated by the Polish Alternative Fuels Association, showed that by the end of 2019, almost 2,000 publicly accessible charging points were operational in Poland—an increase of 100 percent on the previous year.
Aims to launch another 6000 points!
Also, Poland’s largest operators aim to launch another 6000 points in the next two years, and private infrastructure is also developing rapidly.
In addition to this, the announced subsidy programs for both charging stations and vehicles will also help to accelerate market development. Similar aid programs also operate successfully in Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
Increasing the likelihood of sufficient EV charging!
With its portfolio of charging solutions, ranging from home chargers (3.7 kW) and fast-chargers (up to 100 kW) to ultra-fast chargers (up to 350 kW) and sophisticated charging management software, EVBox will increase the likelihood of having sufficient EV charging infrastructure in Eastern Europe.
To date, EVBox has a strong foundation for successfully establishing EV charging infrastructure in Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic.
Janusz Grądzki, Regional Director of EVBox:
“As we recognize the high potential for EV charging in Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic—where governments, partners, and clients are facing challenges to adopting eMobility accordingly—I am happy that we can respond to their needs with direct local support. We’ll provide them with the market knowledge they need, and with precise charging solutions and management systems for the best possible electric charging infrastructure. EV drivers in Eastern Europe will soon be able to charge everywhere—at home, at their workplace, and on the road.”
