Scalable EV charging solutions from Finland
Kempower is the new EV fast charging partner for Mer Norway
Mer, one of the leading charging point operators in Europe, has chosen Kempower as one of its new electric vehicles (EV) fast charging partners in Norway. Kempower and Mer Norway have signed a frame agreement on Kempower’s DC fast charging technology deliveries to Norway. Following Mer Norway’s ambition to provide sustainable electric mobility to everyone, they will establish charging stations with Kempower technology at scale.
The European charging company Mer has footprint in Norway, Sweden, UK, Germany and Austria. Owned by Statkraft, Europe’s largest producer of renewable energy, the company has over a decade of experience within EV charging. Established as early as 2009, Mer Norway (formerly Grønn Kontakt) has been one of the leading charging operators in Norway – also known as the pioneering country for electric mobility. Within this time, Mer Norway has established over 300 fast charging stations across Norway.
– Our mission is to make sustainable electric mobility easy and accessible to everyone, and we have an ambitious build out programme in Norway in order to keep up with the strong EV adaptation. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do and we are happy to partner up with Kempower who clearly share the same vision as Mer, says Nicholai Sheridan Jørgensen, managing director of Mer Norway.
– We are extremely happy for the cooperation with Mer Norway. Kempower has recently gained a strong foothold on the Norwegian charging market, and we are looking forward to developing the charging experience further with Mer’s customers – the Norwegian EV drivers, says Tomi Ristimäki, CEO, Kempower.
For years, Norway has been the leader in electrifying cars: in 2021, two-thirds of new cars sold in Norway were electric.
