ChargePoint (CP) and the Technical Services Group (TSG) has announced an agreement covering site construction, installation and maintenance, together with a reseller partnership to provide electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions and services to business throughout Europe. The partnership aims to accelerate the shift to electric mobility and give businesses an opportunity to evolve with the changing landscape.
Initially, CP and TSG will work together in France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands and the UK, with the intention of expanding across Europe. Each company will focus on its core expertise as the partnership accelerates the build-out of EV charging stations.
In addition to the project, TSG is expanding its services to include sales, installation and maintenance of all CP charging solutions, including the CP Express Plus ultra-fast charging platform which aims to provide rapid refuelling along major roadways.
Christopher Burghardt, managing director for Europe, CP, said: “This agreement catapults electric mobility to the next level, helping all types of businesses across Europe enhance their business models to take advantage of the shift to electric mobility. TSG has a century of experience and this move marks a significant shift in the nature of fuelling from only dedicated locations to opportunistic fuelling where vehicles are parked. The convenience of being able to charge in more places will ease the transition to e-mobility as we continue to provide a simple charging experience everywhere drivers go.”
