Wallbox announced Monday a partnership with the EV sharing software and technology provider EVmatch to increase charging accessibility for drivers by opening its chargers throughout the U.S. to EVmatch users.
“We started EVmatch to address a major barrier to EV adoption, the lack of reliable and convenient charging options for renters and apartment dwellers,” said Heather Hochrein, Founder and CEO of EVmatch.
“Our Wallbox partnership will further amplify our efforts to make charging reliable and accessible to all by combining our flexible sharing software with open-source technologies that will serve our industry at this critical moment,” Hochrein added.
“At Wallbox, we’re focused on leading innovation within the EV charging and energy management space. Our EVmatch partnership will allow more charging hosts and drivers to have access to our Pulsar Plus Level 2 charger across homes, apartments, offices, and more,” said Douglas Alfaro, General Manager at Wallbox North America.
The companies believe the partnership will “help pave the way for further innovation in the industry and will allow charging to become fully accessible to drivers, home or apartment owners, and business owners, which will help democratize EV adoption”.
