ChargeUp Europe, the voice of the EV charging infrastructure industry in Europe, is delighted to welcome Q8 as its latest member company.

Q8 is investing in E-mobility solutions across all its European operating units in Benelux, Sweden, Denmark, Italy and Spain: Together they are developing, each at different pace a network of (fast) chargers in their own stations, at partners’ locations and customers and via an international network across Europe. The goal is to ultimately connect all Q8 customers to a large and reliable EU charging network by means of the national Q8 fleet cards or apps. Moreover, Q8 aims to enable customers to have their own Q8 charger installed in their homes, with all the necessary hardware and service delivered by them.

Since its launch in late 2020, ChargeUp Europe has now grown to 24 full industry members, three knowledge partners, and five ecosystem partners, all working together to accelerate the rollout of EV charging infrastructure and enable seamless charging for drivers across the EU.

Commenting on the announcement, Maarten Van Haute, Alternative Fuels Officer of Q8Research, said: “We are delighted to have joined ChargeUp Europe. We are looking forward to the collaboration with other players in the E-mobility market, to learn from each other and to implement an EU wide sustainable charging network in our service stations and beyond for the convenience of all our current and future customers.”
