ChargeUp Europe, the voice of the EV charging infrastructure industry in Europe, is excited to announce its newest knowledge and ecosystem partners, Arthur D. Little and Elia respectively.

Our new knowledge partner, Arthur D. Little GmbH, is headquartered in Frankfurt. The company has a strong footprint in strategy, innovation and transformation. Combining its broad industry expertise and functional, especially digital, competencies, Arthur D. Little is a perfectly matching partner to support and drive convergence topics. We are extremely happy to have Arthur D. Little on board, as they will bring both knowledge and skills to the table, contributing to our work in advocating to accelerate the roll-out of EV charging infrastructure across Europe.

Elia, our new ecosystem partner, is Belgium’s high-voltage transmission system operator and one of Elia Group’s subsidiaries. We are delighted to welcome Elia on board as its values are closely aligned with our own. Elia recently committed to optimising and digitalising its power system to ensure that EVs can successfully be integrated into its grid, so delivering value for consumers and the EV and power systems.

Since its launch last year, ChargeUp Europe has now grown to include 14 full industry members, two knowledge partners, and two ecosystem partners, all working together to accelerate the roll-out of EV charging infrastructure and enable a seamless charging experience for drivers across the EU.

Commenting on the announcement, Alexander Krug, Partner Automotive & Manufacturing Group, Head of Competence Center Electrification at Arthur D. Little stated:

“Electrification will become the new normal within the next decade. Vehicle manufacturers, utilities, mobility providers and governments across Europe are accelerating the development towards a greener and more sustainable individual transport. In our partnership with ChargeUp Europe Arthur D. Little will contribute as a knowledge partner to the transport sector’s transition to a green future.”

Commenting on the announcement, Chris Peeters, CEO Elia Group and Elia stated:

Given the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the societal relevance of transitioning to a sustainable, climate-neutral economy has increased even further. By working together, we can make both the power and automotive industries more sustainable while also forging a better customer experience, primarily through digital technologies. This partnership feels like an immense opportunity to help build a more sustainable world”.
