IBC SOLAR And EVBox Combine Solar And EV Charging

News

IBC SOLAR AG, has announced a strategic partnership with EVBox, a global manufacturer of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and charging management software. As part of the agreement, EVBox will deliver EV charging stations to IBC SOLAR for private and public use. These may be easily combined with photovoltaics and energy storage systems.

"EVs will only produce less emissions if they are being powered by clean energy, such as solar-generated power," says Udo Möhrstedt, Founder and CEO of the photovoltaic company IBC SOLAR, who is convinced of this. "When the eMobility market takes off in 2018, photovoltaics, EVs, and charging infrastructure will have to be part of the same discussion." With this, Möhrstedt is providing the vision and future direction of the solar industry as a photovoltaic pioneer.

As of the beginning of February, this new partnership between EVBox and IBC SOLAR aims to combine their strengths to become strategic partners in Germany, among other European countries. EVBox's charging stations can be combined with photovoltaics in a smart and simple way. With a mobile app, customers are able to configure their charging times to maximize the usage of the solar power available in the grid. Private households and businesses that invest in photovoltaics will save greatly by also using solar energy for their vehicles. At a starting cost of 10 cents per kWh (in Germany), a passenger car powered with solar will only cost around 2 euros for a 100-kilometer drive.

Kristof Vereenooghe, CEO of EVBox, adds to this: "We are very happy to have signed this partnership with IBC SOLAR, one of the most important players in the field of renewable energy. Together, we believe we can advance eMobility in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland and help shape the future of transportation. By combining our EVBox charging stations with IBC Solar's solutions, customers will from now on be able to combine photovoltaics, power storage and electric vehicle charging. The future of transportation is very bright indeed.
