POD Point finds new partners in Scandinavia

The manufacturer, which is already the Europe-wide preferred supplier of charging points for the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid, will now supply the same units to Nissan dealerships across the Nordic region. A significant area for Nissan, where the LEAF is the second-biggest seller in its range.

POD Point has also partnered with electrical supply company Proxll and utility company Nord-Trøndelag Elektrisitetsverk AS (NTE), with the latter including using the new Opel Charge Point Protocol. Developed by E-Laad in the Netherlands, this allows charging points and back-office systems from multiple suppliers to interact, and is predicted to become the Europe-wide industry standard.

POD Point chief executive officer, Erik Fairbairn, said: ‘Nordic Countries were early and rapid adopters of electric and hybrid vehicles, and these territories represent a huge opportunity for companies who enter partnerships with energy companies and transport infrastructure suppliers.
