May 26, 2010 Coulomb Technologies’ EMEA partner 365 Energy today announced that Zohar Energy has been chosen by Polish energy company POLENERGIA to support its expansion as a leading provider of infrastructure solutions for electric vehicles (EVs) in Poland. The first ChargePoint® Networked Charging Station was installed in Warsaw earlier this month. The ChargePoint stations are manufactured by US-based Coulomb Technologies.
"POLENERGIA is a leading private energy company in Poland and aims to develop an electric mobility infrastructure," said Artur Zdybicki, president of the management board of POLENERGIA. "We have chosen 365 Energy Group as our partner as we believe that their Coulomb electric vehicle charging solutions offer a number of benefits such as networked station management and billing. We are very happy to partner with 365 Energy Group on our pilot project which we hope to expand across the country."
"We are excited about our first installation in Poland," said Omer Zimmer, Managing Director of Zohar Energy, a member of the 365 Energy group representing the Eastern European markets. "We aim to expand our electric vehicle charging network across Poland and we thank POLENERGIA for its decision to work with us. We are sure this cooperation will be of great value to both sides."
365 Energy is the EMEA‘s early market leader in providing EV charging infrastructure, which combines significant advantages from both a software technology and end user standpoint. The ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations are equipped with electrical metering and wireless communications capabilities so drivers can get information on the status of the charging station and the charging process online or via SMS. Access to the charging stations is provided via a SmartCard which makes it easier for the user to manage his account.
