ChargeUp Europe alliance launched

Apr 03, 2020
Leading industry players in the electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure sector have come together to form a new alliance, ChargeUp Europe, that will support the roll out of consumer-centric EV policies in Europe.

EVBox Group, Allego, and ChargePoint - who together have more than 150,000 charging points in their networks across the EU - announced the launch of the alliance on 31 March and called on other like-minded companies in the EV industry to join the cause.

Demand for EVs is rising sharply and the EU has set its sights on achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. It is predicted that 44 million electric vehicles will be on European roads by 2030.

The purpose of ChargeUp Europe is to enable a swift and efficient roll out of EV charging infrastructure in Europe. The alliance will work on realising EU policies that support investment in charging infrastructure, help to remove market barriers, facilitate the smooth uptake of EVs, and create a seamless experience for EV drivers.

Kristof Vereenooghe, CEO of EVBox and Everon said, “This is the first time that the entire EV charging infrastructure sector can speak with one clear voice. We need to speak out and defend the interests of EV drivers everywhere instead of letting others do the talking for us. ChargeUp Europe will work to present an assessment of what is needed to create an open market with a consumer-centric model for EV charging in Europe. The key will be to develop, deploy, and operate high quality charging infrastructure that serves the practical needs of EV drivers."
