EDI, a Belgian-based electric vehicle charging infrastructure provider, has acquired Go-Solar. a photovoltaic panels and batteries installer. The acquisition will further EDI’s mission to promote electromobility in Belgium, according to the company.
A subsidiary of D’Ieteren, EDI has quickly become a major player in charging infrastructure in the Belgian market, reported newmobilit.news. “Combining the expertise of EDI (charging infrastructure) with that of local power production (and storage) creates a synergy that many people are looking for. However, until recently, this total solution was rarely offered.
“EDI aims to unburden the consumer – both private and business – when it comes to charging modes for electric vehicles. It installs charging hardware (wall boxes and charging stations), but also supplies charging cards (or apps) that provide access to 250 000 public charging stations across Europe,” said the online news service.
“Vehicles equipped with a charging socket are expected to account for half of all sales of new vehicles by 2025,” explained Nicolas Paris, EDI managing director. “By acquiring Go-Solar, we are striving to make life easier for our customers by offering them a complete electric ecosystem and by relying on Go-Solar's renowned expertise, the quality of its teams and the reliability of its installations.”
