"In this strategic partnership we combine ABB’s long competence in electronics and component manufacturing and its international sales network with RWE’s grid competence of more than one hundred years and e-mobility know-how. Our skills complement one another perfectly," states Ulrich Spiesshofer, head of ABB’s Discrete Automation and Motion division.
Both companies together can offer fast-charging technologies for electric vehicles, since ABB has direct current (DC) charging capabilities and RWE already provides alternating current (AC) charging infrastructure.
RWE also has IT-solutions for customer data management and billing to their commercial and private e-mobility customers.
RWE uses its grid and system competence to offer charging products, which provide grid-friendly charging with load-management for easy integration into future smart grids.
"E-mobility is part of a fundamental change in city logistic concepts, particularly for metropolitan areas. Teaming up with technology and automation expert ABB enables us to address this in a holistic way," says Arndt Neuhaus, Chief Executive Officer of RWE Deutschland AG.
