Over 9,000 charging stations for Denmark
Clever continues large-scale expansion of Danish charging infrastructure
Compleo Charging Solutions AG received a large new order for AC charging stations from Danish e-mobility provider Clever. As Denmark's largest provider of charging solutions, Clever is planning to install a total of 9,000 new charging stations in public spaces by the end of 2025, enough to provide charging power at 18,000 parking spaces.
The majority of these stations are to be delivered by Compleo from 2023. Active in Denmark since 2009, market leader Clever operates the most extensive public charging network in the country. The two companies have been partners for almost ten years.
With this latest comprehensive campaign, the partners want to drive the expansion of charging infrastructure in Denmark forward together.
The tried and tested Compleo DUO charging station with two 22-kW charging points is the perfect solution to achieve this ambitious task. "We are proud of our continued partnership with Clever, the strongest force in the Danish market, in shaping the electric mobility of the future. This shows that our technology and our products are also the ideal solution in an international context," says Alfred Vrieling, VP sales & marketing Europe at Compleo Charging Solutions AG.
"We are happy to further extend our long-standing partnership with Compleo and to continue our journey in developing charging infrastructure for many years and accelerating the green transition of the Danish transport sector. We have chosen Compleo as a key charging station provider because we feel confident in the products they provide. In particular the company's commitment to continuously developing charging station technology and their services as a manufacturer make Compleo an attractive provider for us" explains CEO at Clever, Casper Kirketerp-Møller.
Latest technology for Denmark
In a first step, some features of the DUO models on order will be customised to meet Clever's particular needs, with further innovative functionality to be added in the future. The aim is to achieve particularly low operating and maintenance costs, a crucial factor for the Danish operator. Furthermore, the DUO version to be delivered to Denmark will be ISO 15118-ready. This means that functionality such as Plug & Charge can be added via software updates in the future. Convenient payment options will be available for the end users. These innovations will be added gradually over the coming year.
For the second stage in expanding its charging network, Clever needed a suitable European partner. Clever has its own track record of significant innovations. The company was the first provider to "connect" northern European cities via rapid charging stations along motorways and the first one worldwide to introduce a monthly flat rate plan. Compleo is a first mover in Germany in terms of developing and manufacturing cutting-edge charging technology. The company's products include the first DC charging station compliant with German calibration law and an integrated payment module with PIN pad for AC charging stations. The Dortmund company had already won the contract for 900 stations with 1,800 charging points for Clever in the first tender round in 2021.
The expansion of electric mobility in Denmark is continuing at pace. As early as December 2021, 27 percent of new cars sold in the country were fully electric, with a number of around 70,000 electric vehicles in total on Danish roads. As part of the Danish government's "Infrastructure Plan 2035", around 20,000 charging stations are to be installed in the country by the end of 2025. The number of public charging stations previously installed is to double throughout 2022 already.
