Urbanisation is the strongest global trend at present. More than half of the world’s population already lives in cities, and within a few decades this figure will have risen to 70%. Considering the growing environmental impact that this entails, there is an urgent need for new smart ways to meet the demand for a high standard of living while maintaining sustainable social development so that our planet can cope.
There are clear cost and sustainability incentives in support of electric vehicles, but one important prerequisite for increasing the speed of the transition is ensuring a nationwide network of charging stations. In other words, charging your electric vehicle should be equally easy no matter where in Sweden you live. This is not currently the case, which is why the Swedish government is now offering SEK 150 million in investment aid to accelerate the expansion of public fast-charging stations.
Thanks to GARO’s strong focus on sustainability, striving to be a leader in corporate responsibility comes naturally. We take a long-term and systematic approach to lessening the impact of our business, products and decisions on the environment, society and people throughout the value chain. And, of course, this encompasses our entire business, in every country where we operate.
On May 15, 2020, GARO AB (publ) signed an agreement to acquire 70 percent of the shares in EV Charge Partner Sweden AB. The company performs service and support as well as commissioning of charging infrastructure for mainly large operators of charging infrastructure and utility companies in Sweden and Poland.
Modern society has an increasing need to charge electric and hybrid vehicles. GARO is pleased to announce the Nova wallbox, specially developed for temporary use at construction sites, events and the like.
At eCarExpo earlier this year, GARO unveiled its new Twin wallbox for the first time. And now the product is ready for market launch. GARO offers turnkey solutions in electric vehicle charging and the new Twin wallbox is another well-designed and future-smart wallbox for charging at your home, apartment building or workplace. This new wallbox enables two vehicles to be charged at the same time – simply, safely and effectively.
GARO AB has signed a framework agreement with a global player in the automotive industry for supplying charging infrastructure for the European market
GARO is now launching a new fastcharger, developed in-house in Sweden for the European market. GARO Fast Charger is characterized by its user-friendliness, reliability and sustainability. With this new product, GARO is expanding its range of in-house charger products, and meets the high demand for short-stop quick charging.
eCarExpo is scheduled to take place at Friends Arena in Stockholm on 7–9 February. For GARO, a leader in electric vehicle charging, exhibiting our broad product range at this fair is a given. During the fair, we will be unveiling the new Twin wallbox with dual outlets. GARO is also one of the fair’s main sponsors.
