Smart charging solutions provider NewMotion has teamed up with clean energy company Fortum to expand its roaming network for electric vehicles (EVs).

Under the agreement, customers of Shell’s wholly-owned subsidiary NewMotion will be able to access Fortum’s charging network in Finland, Norway and Sweden.

The partnership expands the company’s roaming network for EV charging in Europe to more than 135,000 charge points.

Sytse Zuidema, CEO of NewMotion said: “Making EV charging more accessible by adding new charging locations will help the majority switch to driving electric. We are pleased with this partnership with Fortum as it will give our clients in the Nordics access to more charging locations for their EVs. We strongly believe in bi-directional roaming agreements like this as they provide EV drivers, independent from their service provider, the comfort to charge their electric vehicle everywhere.

“In addition, we think this is an essential element to realise faster adoption of electric vehicles in general as it makes e-mobility more accessible.”
