Fortum Charge & Drive has signed a cooperation contract with Enspiron, a subsidiary of the Polish energy company Energa, to provide its Charge & Drive cloud solution, which Energa will use to operate its EV charging infrastructure.
Energa currently operates six charging facilities in the cities of Gdańsk, Sopot and Gdynia, and the company plans to expand to other areas of Poland. The use of the charging stations is currently free to users.
The Fortum Charge & Drive cloud solution enables remote monitoring and upgrades, and also provides payment processing.
“The [e-mobility] market is inevitably moving towards the point when customers will have to start paying for EV charging,” said Tadeusz Wita, Chairman of Enspirion. “Thanks to the agreement with Fortum, we will be ready for that. The cooperation guarantees access to up-to-date technologies, which are effectively used in the Nordics, where EVs are more popular. In the near future we aspire to dynamically develop the EV charging infrastructure in Poland and thanks to that system we will be able to cooperate with other charging station owners in the country by connecting them into our network.”
“We are pleased that our infrastructure solutions are gaining global recognition,” says Rami Syväri, Head of International Sales & Business Development for Fortum Charge & Drive. “At the moment, our system provides services for more than 1,200 charging points. In Norway alone, we have 60,000 charging sessions per month. We are convinced that this cooperation will contribute significantly to the development of the e-mobility sector in Poland.”
