Eroaming provider, Hubject is strengthening its presence in France.

Hubject will intensify its activities in the growing French market in 2020, with a pipeline of operators set to integrate its platform and eRoaming solutions.

“With its six physical borders France, is a central market for eMobility and plays a significant role for international mobility across Europe and therefore for the interoperability of EV charging infrastructure,” said Hubject CEO, Christian Hahn.

“Our societies are facing unprecedented environmental, economic and societal challenges. Electric mobility partly addresses these three problems, but the difficulties encountered by users in recharging their cars outside their usual network of charging points is a real obstacle for users and potential buyers of EVs.”

“France has emerged as one of the strongest and most mature eMobility markets in Europe, delivering consistent quarterly and annual growth. We firmly believe, however, there is room for further growth and that the operators, who are willing to integrate into our platform and technology solutions will reap sizeable benefits.”

France recently outlined an automotive recovery plan presented by President Macron.

At the heart of the plan is the announcement of massive support for the acquisition of new electric or hybrid vehicles, as well as the advancement of the objective of deploying 70,000 new charging stations by the end of 2021, compared with the initial 2022 forecast, to bring the fleet to 100,000 units.

“We are committed to our current and future partners in France to drive forward the common cause of electric mobility,” added Hahn.

“Our business units for eRoaming, Consulting, and Plug&Charge now benefit from our local presence”.

With 18 partnerships in France with companies and public bodies such as Chargemap, Freshmile, Electric 55 Charging, Ionity France, Renault, SAP Labs, Schneider Electric, Syndicat Départemental d’Energies de l’Yonne (SDEY), SPIE, Virta France and others, Hubject connects around 15% of charging stations installed in France.
