EON and Clever in Scandinavian EV pact

Danish e-mobility company Clever and German energy giant E.ON have formed a joint venture for building and operating ultra-fast EV chargers along motorways throughout Scandinavia.

The project will aim to connect cities in Denmark, Norway and Sweden with a total of 48 ultra-fast charging sites, which are all due to be operational by 2020 and will be open to EV customers of Clever, E.ON plus third party operators.

Frank Meyer, senior vice-president of Innovation & Customer Solutions at E.ON, said the joint venture was a “proof point of the e-mobility ecosystem at work, where governments, competitors and industries work together to achieve a greater goal ” accelerating electric mobility”.

“We share a long-term investment and vision with Clever. Jointly we will move ahead and deploy our ultra-fast charging network in Scandinavia.”

Clever chief executive Casper Kirketerp-Màƒ¸ller said the project was “a major leap forward for Scandinavian and European EV drivers alike”.

“With this new joint venture, we’re journeying into the new era of borderless sustainable e-mobility. Only two years ago, this was a vivid dream on Danish soil of connecting people by frictionless, limitless, rewarding EV experience, and now we’ve been granted the green light from the European Commission, with several ultra-fast charging sites sprouting throughout Denmark, Sweden and Norway.”
