Volta Charging is to expand operations into the European Union (EU) with the opening of an office in Germany.

Volta Charging builds and operates a nationwide US EV charging network, with the company saying it is seeking to transform the fuelling industry by building open-network charging stations in locations where drivers already spend time, including grocery stores and pharmacies.

“Our goal is to offer the same convenient, reliable and open infrastructure for European drivers as we do here in the US,” said Volta Charging founder and CEO, Scott Mercer.

“We think the time is right to introduce our model in the EU – enabling us to develop a charging network across Europe that is uniquely commerce-aligned.

“American business partners who have already chosen to install Volta Charging stations on site, report increases in spend, dwell time and engagement on site.”
