Europe’s Hubject has kicked off their business in the States. Their Santa Monica HQ is the new base from where to spread their interoperable charging platform intercharge. Hubject now have a presence on four continents.
Hubject had had their move to the U.S. planned for some time and recently made their first foray when teaming up with Volta Charging.
Hubject’s man for the job is Paul Glenney, who looks back on 15 years of experience in cleantech, where he oversaw the U.S. launch of the Nissan LEAF and the BMW ActiveE for example.
Glenney comments on the official launch of Hubject Inc.: “After the success we’ve had with our 300 partners in Europe and Japan, launching in the United States was the next logical step as EV sales continue to rise. We’re eager to help accelerate the global transition to e-mobility with our innovative software that provides a neutral system for EV charging companies to work together and provide seamless charging for drivers.”
The Hubject platform intercharge works by offering its corporate partners an B2B IT platform, that allows charging operators and service providers to implement interoperability between one another with one central contract and one API interface.
Hubject’s consumer facing eRoaming platform allows EV drivers to find, access and pay for charging stations from various charging networks with one account. The company claims it facilitates interconnection between 300 different charging networks with over 70,000 charge ports to date.
