EVBox is planning to install 300,000 EV charging stations across Denmark

Charging infrastructure provider EVBox Group has announced a new cooperation with Norlys. Norlys is Denmark’s largest energy and telecommunications group and the partners aim to install 300,000 charging stations for electric vehicles across Denmark by 2030.

The companies still have to disclose the type of charging stations they will install.

Norlys says it aims to contribute to a green and digitalized Denmark. The 300,000 charging stations directly tie into Denmark’s ambitious climate target to put 760,000 electric and hybrid vehicles on the road by 2030.

“As Denmark’s largest energy and telecommunications group, Norlys can play a big role in establishing EV charging infrastructure that will usher in a new era of sustainable mobility in Denmark,” Bram Poeth, CCO at EVBox Group, added when announcing the new partnership.

For the Dutch Group, it is the second significant deal in the Nordics. In April, EVBox said it had teamed up with Iceland’s utility ON Power to install EV chargers around Rejkjyavik for a start. As in Denmark, the advance in Iceland, which has the second most electric vehicles per capita, also ties into a state-governed strategy.

Denmark aims to become CO2-neutral by 2040, including a ban on new cars with combustion engines from 2030. This is another great deal for EVbox which recently also announced that it will will equip Bridgestone sites with EV chargers.

At the end of 2020, EVBox also stated its intention to list on the New York Stock Exchange through a merger with investment firm TPG Pace Beneficial Finance. The expected funds are to be used to expand the global business, focusing on North America and expanding the technology portfolio. As of today the SPAC deal still awaits completion.

Furthermore, EVBox entered into a sales and service partnership with TSG Group from France to offer EVBox charging solutions earlier this year. This includes installation and on-site services in 30 European countries. The cooperation already exists in the Netherlands, France, Denmark and Croatia.
