ROUND-UP: EO Charging makes ‘smart’ partnership; Engenie chargers to meet customers’ demand; Instavolt celebrates latest milestone
EO Charging has partnered with eMotorWerks to integrate new smart functions into its home chargers; Engenie is to install rapid chargers at eight M7 Real Estate locations; and Instavolt has installed its 200th rapid DC charger a year after it began to roll out units across the UK.
Electric vehicle charging suppliers Pod Point and Instavolt have signed up new clients for whom they will deploy a range of new charge points across commercial and potentially some residential locations.
Rapid DC charging provider Instavolt is to deploy units at half of Cornwall Garage Group’s forecourts after it was selected due to its business model allowing the petrol station operator to avoid the cost of installation.
Instavolt is to increase its stock of rapid chargers three fold after agreeing to acquire 400 additional units from ChargePoint in the latest European deal to be secured by the US electric vehicle charging giant.
