EV companies team to form ChargeUp Europe

By Simon Warburton | 3 April 2020

Electric vehicle charging infrastructure sector companies are collaborating to form a new alliance known as ChargeUp Europe, supporting the roll out of EV policies across the Continent.

ChargePoint, Allego and EVBox Group, who together have more than 150,000 charging points in their networks across the EU, are forming ChargeUp Europe and are calling on other companies to join.

"Against the backdrop of a highly relevant policy agenda, we believe it is the right time for a dedicated voice to represent the charging infrastructure sector in Europe," said ChargePoint Europe MD, Christopher Burghardt.

"We are committed to working with EU decision-makers and stakeholders to identify the policies and investments needed to facilitate the greater number of electric vehicles expected to come onto the EU market.

"The move to electric is critical in reaching zero-net emissions and this alliance is dedicated to supporting EV infrastructure that positively impacts EV adoption."
