Polar Structure and GenZ EV Solutions Announce Ultra-Fast EV Charging Network Partnership in the US

Setting up sustainable vehicle charging systems

Published: Tuesday, March 14, 2023 - 12:01

(Polar Structure AB: Stockholm) -- Swedish infrastructure company Polar Structure AB (Polar Structure), announced it is expanding into the public EV charging space with the goal of establishing an ultra-fast EV charging network across the United States. Polar has selected GenZ EV Solutions as its U.S. rollout partner.

“Polar Structure has a clear vision of contributing to the green transition by offering ways to develop, operate, and finance required investments in infrastructure. Our commitment to the EV transition, where we already have made substantial investments in Europe, is an important part of this mission. We are excited to build on this momentum and partner with GenZ EV Solutions for the start of our public network development in the United States,” says Polar Structure founder and CEO Tobias Emanuelsson.

One of the top three reasons consumers cite for not purchasing an EV is a lack of charging sites available within their normal driving patterns. As the demand for EVs continues to rise exponentially, the need for a charging infrastructure to support it becomes ever more critical. GenZ EV Solutions CEO Jose Valls says: “We are proud to partner with Polar Structure and its forward-looking leadership team who invested in GenZ EV Solutions from the start. Our alliance in the U.S. is a natural progression for both companies, and together we look forward to bringing to life a high-quality network of ultra-fast charging sites in partnership with blue-chip customers. We are confident that our access to strategically placed locations with high utilization rates (will) deliver great results for consumers and stakeholders alike.”

Focusing mainly on green sites in National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure qualifying areas, the partnership will also leverage its management’s deep automotive relationships to provide turnkey solutions to dealerships whose real estate and location allow for ultra-fast EV charging to be made accessible to the public.
