The electrification of Norway with Solar and EVBox
In June of 2020, Solar and EVBox entered a partnership to sell and distribute charging stations to installers in the Norwegian market, contributing to the electrification of Norway.
The Norwegian government states that Norway is going to be a low-emission society by 2050, and have set a goal for all new passenger cars and light trucks to be zero-emission by 2025. For this to be possible, there must be sufficient available charging possibilities for EV drivers across the country.
Solar Norway desires to be a part of the solution towards a zero-emission future
Solar offers tailored logistics solutions that increase the efficiency and profitability of charging station owners. On the mission towards the electrification of Norway, Solar is proactive and desires to be a part of the green change that is currently happening. With a focus on actively preparing for a sustainable future and becoming a part of the solution, Solar and EVBox share the same values and offer intelligent EV charging solutions that can help pave the way towards a zero-emission future.
“Developing EV charging infrastructure in Norway requires skillful application of both sophisticated tools, sales techniques and strong products. As a spearhead in the EV-industry, EVBox has indeed helped develop Solar into a proactive partner for our customers, providing total charging solutions with leading technology and a strong technical set-up.” explains Thomas Skovli, VP Business Development & Special Sales for Solar Norway AS
Throughout the partnership, Solar’s comprehensive network of installers all over the country is combined with EVBox’s expertise and international experience, which provides a strong position and a complete solution to the Norwegian market. To meet the growing demand for EV charging solutions, Solar and EVBox are offering a range of products that installers can order online, for charging at home, at the workplace, and for fleets.
“I am very happy to have Solar on board as our distribution partner in Norway. Their impressive network and notable connections with installers allows EVBox to provide proven technology and charging stations in one of the most forward-thinking and EV-centric countries in the world.” says Geir Bjørnstad, Regional Director Nordics, EVBox
