Sungrow Joins AVERE to Accelerate the Development in EV Charging Market
Sungrow, one of the world’s leading renewable energy companies, announced recently that it joined AVERE (The European Association for Electromobility), demonstrating its dedication to achieving the EU’s goal of climate neutrality by 2050 and creating a zero-carbon future.
AVERE, founded in 1978, is the only European association representing and advocating for electromobility and sustainable transport on behalf of the industry, academia, and EV users at both EU and national levels. Its voice is heard at the highest level of the policymaking world and its advice on key energy and transportation policy issues is often requested.
Sungrow embeds sustainability in the core of its business and applies its experience and strength to achieve its “Clean power for all” mission and contribute to the global net-zero target. Recognising the megatrend of integration of renewable energy, electric mobility and electrification, Sungrow took the first step of developing its own EV charger in 2017 based on long-term accumulated experience in the design and application of outdoor high-power inverters. Sungrow made the first entry into the European EV charging market in 2021 with an AC charger and since then the solution has been installed in an increasing number of European households.
Joining AVERE is a key step for Sungrow to exchange with like-minded companies and satisfy European EV charging market demand. “Sungrow will strictly abide by AVERE’s regulations, actively participate in the initiatives of the AVERE, promote the reform in the field of new energy vehicle charging, contribute corporate wisdom and professional strength to the global green development, and accelerate the early realization of the global carbon neutral goal,” comments Andrés Doebel, Head of EV Charging, Sungrow Europe.
