ChargeUp Europe, the voice of the EV charging infrastructure industry in Europe, is excited to announce ABB as its newest industry member.

Headquartered in Switzerland, ABB is a world leader in electric vehicle infrastructure, offering the full range of charging and electrification solutions for electric cars, electric and hybrid buses as well as for ships and railways. ABB entered the EV charging market back in 2010 and is now the partner of choice for the world’s biggest electric vehicle OEMs and nationwide EV charging network operators.

2020 was a record year for EV sales in Europe, driven mainly by policy and supported by many new EV models entering the market. Europe’s share of EV sales exceeded that of all other regions in 2020, with more than 10% of new car sales being electric[1].  Today, ABB has sold more than 400,000 electric vehicle chargers across more than 85 markets; over 20,000 DC fast chargers and 380,000 AC chargers.

Since its launch one year ago, ChargeUp Europe has grown to 14 full industry members, two knowledge partners, and an ecosystem partner, all working together to accelerate the rollout of EV charging infrastructure and enable seamless charging for drivers across the EU.  With key EU policy discussions under way that will shape the future of eMobility in Europe, ABB’s membership and expertise will strengthen ChargeUp Europe’s voice at this critical time.

Commenting on the announcement, Frank Muehlon, President of ABB’s eMobility Division said:

“We are very excited to join ChargeUp Europe. Since its launch in 2020 ChargeUp Europe has quickly become a vocal and influential industry association in the EV charging sector at EU level.  Being part of ChargeUp Europe is an important element in our strategy and underlines our commitment to build a robust infrastructure to drive eMobility forward.  We look forward to contributing and working closely with other members, whilst bringing to the table our expertise in terms of technology and innovation in the sector.”
