The expansion of electromobility is not only taking place in public spaces, it also touches on an important growth area at the interface between the energy and housing industries. This is because the public charging infrastructure will not be sufficient to achieve the ambitious expansion targets.
Therefore, the private charging infrastructure is of great importance. But how are current developments going? Where are we with charging options in the company? And what role does the housing industry play?
That's what we're talking about today with Konrad Benze, head and co-founder of ChargeHere, EnBW's innovation project, and Johannes Brodführer, CEO and founder of eliso, the manufacturer-independent specialist for charging infrastructure.
