The charging networks Hubject and Star Charge China have entered a collaboration which both companies hope will drive the global development of open, customer-oriented charging networks for electric vehicles.
The charging infrastructure provider Star Charge will bring its network of 20,000 charging points to Hubject’s cross-provider charging network, becoming the first Chinese partner to join the network, and thus open the network up to other market participants. In turn, the Berlin-based e-mobility company Hubject, which is now also active in the USA and China, will help Star Charge to enter the European market.
The collaboration will accelerate further market development of emobility solutions and support the emergence of standardized market models worldwide. Together, Hubject and Star Charge are building the world’s largest international network with a total of over 100,000 charging points.
Hubject has been operating in China for almost a year; the company has its own office in Shanghai. The new collaboration with Star Charge is the first milestone in Hubject’s activities in China.
“We are pleased about the collaboration with Hubject, as we can now offer convenient access to our network to even greater numbers of people, both in China and in Europe,” said Shao Danwei, CEO of Star Charge.
“In Star Charge, we have found the perfect partner in China who will help us to push on with our vision of customer-oriented charging in this very important market,” added Christian Hahn, CEO of Hubject.
