E.ON now offers Zaptec wallboxes
Norwegian charging infrastructure manufacturer Zaptec has signed a framework agreement with energy company E.ON to distribute its products in 18 European countries. E.ON will initially distribute Zaptec products to residential customers through its digital channels in Sweden and Norway.
In Sweden, the Zaptec Go wallbox will be sold immediately through E.ON as part of a package including installation and the electricity tariff. From autumn 2023, the package will also be available in Norway, according to Zaptec.
Other markets are not yet named in the announcement. However, with 16 countries to go and the prevalence of EVs here, it is likely that the German energy provider will also offer Zaptec products in Germany. Sales in Austria are also conceivable, where the subsidiary E.ON Drive only recently founded its own company based in Vienna.
Just this spring, the Norwegians presented another wallbox for the German market, the Zaptec Pro, developed for private and commercial charging in semi-public areas. Zaptec chargers are manufactured in Norway by the primary production partner Westcontrol and, since autumn 2022, also by Sanmina in Bavaria, specifically in Gunzenhausen.
Peter Bardenfleth-Hansen, CEO of Zaptec, believes “that the European agreement is a key step towards realizing the vision of electric mobility on the continent”. “E.ON is one of Europe’s leading energy companies and brings expertise and resources that provide security and benefits for our expansion plans,” he said. “There is no doubt that this European framework agreement will contribute to more electric cars and increased access to electric charging in the future.”
“Zaptec produces high-quality products at favourable prices. We are very pleased with the agreement, which complements our product portfolio with a fast, sleek charging station with smart features that efficiently charges and adjusts according to the lowest electricity prices,” says Robert Tretinjak, Head of E.ON eMobility.
