– We believe that tomorrow's society needs to be fully electrical. One of the key elements of this vision is to eliminate fossil fuels in transportation. And that’s why we started Ladeklar. We are actually more like an investment company driving the transition from gas to electricity, says charging expert and Ladeklar CEO, Stian Bjørhei.
Together with CURRENT, Ladeklar offers their customers a full overview of the charging box that is distributed from Ladeklar, as well as the opportunity to manage the box themselves.
– It’s key for us that all our customers have full control of their charging. In fact, we made it our mantra to make charging as easy as possible, because we believe simplicity will speed up people's adaptation to electrical. CURRENT plays a key role in delivering on this mantra, continues Bjørhei.
Ladeklar uses CURRENT's smart cloud software platform for EV Charge Point management. This enables energy network owners and power providers to take advantage of technology developed by CURRENT. For the end user, it makes no difference. The technology is the same, but Ladeklar provides the branding and offering to the market.
CEO at CURRENT, Tom Orvei, explains:
– Our technology is made flexible. And in close collaboration with Ladeklar, we are reaching out to a fast-growing market with a much-needed support for a sustainable EV charging infrastructure, says Tom Orvei, CURRENT CEO. Together, we will manage thousands of different EV chargers, making charging smart, safe and simple for all of Ladeklar’s customers, finishes Orvei.
