Statkraft has acquired the entire shareholding of electric vehicle (EV) charging company E-WALD GmbH. The acquisition further strengthens Statkraft’s position in the German and European EV charging market after it became a majority shareholder in eeMobility in Germany last year.
The EV charging company E-WALD has a strong position in fast charging and electric car-sharing services. It operates around 300 charging stations and offers EV leasing services for circa 100 fleet cars to corporations and municipalities with approximately 7000 customers in total.
The acquisition of E-WALD will strengthen Statkraft’s position in Germany and complements the company’s position in eeMobility, which provides a full-service offering of charging solutions for company car fleets.
Statkraft aims to grow a leading EV charging business in key growth markets in Europe. Statkraft has long experience with the industry through its shareholding in the Norwegian EV charging company Grønn Kontakt.
