transport providers in 13 European countries a customised and complete e-mobility solution. Charging is a prerequisite for electrifying transport. For transport providers in urban and some regional applications, depot charging will in many cases be sufficient. Many transport providers are therefore examining depot charging, but discovering that finding the right charging solutions is a complex matter. For more advanced routes and as the electrification journey progresses, there will also be a need for more advanced solutions as well as for destination charging and public charging, which today is extremely limited.
ENGIE stands out in the energy sector with international reach as well as strong local partnerships. It has a capability to provide both the energy system and, through EVBox Group, intelligent and scalable high-power charging tailored to each customer. ENGIE’s brings extensive experience of electric vehicle charging and energy systems and will design, offer, install and maintain the electric charging solution and related services.
Scania believes that transport can only be transformed by exploring a broader ecosystem and collaborating with new partners in order to catalyse change. The partnership with ENGIE and EVbox Group is yet another venture into the energy sector for Scania, following an earlier announcement on battery supply. It focuses on depot charging for customers and will initially cover 13 European countries with a further expansion towards the end of 2021.
This partnership also constitutes an important building block in Scania’s commitment to science based climate targets, which also encompass helping customers decarbonise their operations.
