German PV and storage company IBC Solar has signed off on a partnership agreement with EVBox, a global manufacturer of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and charging management software.

As part of the deal, EVBox will provide its EV charging stations to IBC Solar for private and public use. These stations can also be combined with PV and energy storage systems.

Udo Möhrstedt, founder and CEO of IBC Solar said: “EVs will only produce less emissions if they are being powered by clean energy, such as solar-generated power. When the eMobility market takes off in 2018, photovoltaics, EVs, and charging infrastructure will have to be part of the same discussion.”

Starting at the beginning of February, the new partnership will see both companies attempt to combine their efforts to become strategic partners in Germany and other European countries.

EVBox’s charging stations can be combined with PV systems in a simple way. By using a mobile app, customers are able to configure their charging times to maximize the usage of the solar power available in the grid. At a starting cost of 10 cents per kWh (in Germany), a car powered with solar will only cost around 2 euros for a 100-kilometer drive.

Kristof Vereenooghe, CEO of EVBox, added: “We are very happy to have signed this partnership with IBC SOLAR, one of the most important players in the field of renewable energy. Together, we believe we can advance eMobility in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland and help shape the future of transportation. By combining our EVBox charging stations with IBC Solar's solutions, customers will from now on be able to combine photovoltaics, power storage and electric vehicle charging.”
