EVBox says it is now connected to Gireve's platform, opening its charging points to Gireve's e-mobility service provider partners.

EVBox is a manufacturer of electric vehicle charging stations and charging management software.

The new connection with EVBox adds a network of charge on the roaming platform, which already gathers 60,000 charging points from different networks across Europe.

"It is extremely important to see a European charging leader send a clear sign of network openness and we are happy to contribute to this move," said Gireve CEO, Bruno Lebrun.

"It is a must-have to overcome a common obstacle to e-mobility adoption."

EVBox maintains it is expecting "exponential growth" in the coming years, as 2020 is considered a tipping point with many large OEMs launching new electric models and battery prices dropping sharply.

The company is expected to grow to 500+ employees globally by the end of 2019, while launching new hardware (both AC and DC) as well as software products.
