Klaus Fröhlich, who is the BMW board member for development, is set to join the supervisory board of energy group E.On, but will remain in his position at BMW. If the move is approved it will be another sign of the sectors merging in terms of e-mobility.
E.ON will propose Fröhlich as a candidate at its annual general meeting scheduled on May, 9. The utility has advanced its electric transport activities further lately as it embarked on projects with Nissan as well as Swedish startup Uniti.
Furthermore, E.ON plans to install 10,000 public charging stations all over Europe, including at super markets, train stations and highway stops by 2020 (we reported).
