Hubject and ubitricity announce their collaboration

Sep 24, 2020 | Press Releases

Berlin, 24th September 2020: Hubject and ubitricity announce their Europe-wide cooperation. ubitricity is known as a specialist for charging and billing systems and operates the second-largest charging network in Great Britain as a CPO (Charge Point Operator). With its business and IT platform, Hubject has developed into the largest international roaming network since 2012, giving EV drivers easy access to the charging stations of leading CPOs.

Charging of an electric vehicle is still a complex topic these days – especially when there is no access to a privately-owned charging station at home or the workplace. Therefore, ubitricity started to collaborate with partners to install over 2,200 charge points in 18 months. Now 16 of the 32 London boroughs, including councils such as Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea, Camden, Hammersmith and Fulham offer public on-street charging with ubitricity’s lamp post chargers.

The charge points of ubitricity are installed inside of street light poles, eliminating not only furniture clutter and the need for external components but also preserving the look and feel of the street. EV drivers can access the charge points with a standard charging cable via the “Pay As You Go” option. Now a new option will be added until the end of 2020, by allowing the use of eMobility Service provider apps more EV drivers will get direct access to the extensive charging network of ubitricity in the UK.

Lex Hartman, CEO of ubitricity stated: “This collaboration gives ubitricity a boost to accelerate what we have been working on: open protocols, open standard charging infrastructure, and access for all EV drivers. EV charging of the future will be much easier for every driver than refueling a car with a combustion engine. With Hubject, we can now make our charge points available to an even wider range of EV drivers. All you need is a smartphone and a standard cable.

By cooperating with Hubject ubitricity expands the eMobility network and takes it to the next level – a broad public charging infrastructure with a connection to the largest eRoaming platform. This is especially relevant for the end customers because EV charging needs to become as simple as possible.

Christian Hahn, CEO of Hubject added: “eMobility is a global trend – therefore I believe in global solutions which help to reduce the complexity for EV drivers – or to better use, an old statement: think global – act local – also for EV charging”.
