German operator elvah increases charging opportunities on its app with GIREVE

“We are obsessed with customer-centricity. Hence our goals are straightforward: give our users the freedom to charge everywhere. As the market in Europe is highly fragmented, we are thrilled to find partners, such as Gireve. Gireve is easing the process of ubiquitous availability of charging points for our users.” said Steffen, Head of Operations & Partnerships at elvah.

There are thousands of charging point operators in Europe. There’s the small bakery with one charger, the hotel with a few, the business with a few hundred and so forth. In Germany, there are more than 2,000 providers to supply electric cars with electricity. This shows freedom of the market but increases complexity at the same time. This complexity can be simplified by aggregation and roaming. The first version of elvah’s app was developed between July and September 2020 and was officially launched for all drivers in March 2021.
