Statkraft acquires UK electric vehicle business from Vattenfall

Swedish energy group Vattenfall is to transfer ownership of its electric vehicle business in the UK, to Statkraft, Europe’s largest generator of renewable energy

Vattenfall currently operates an electric vehicle charging network in the UK and this has been acquired by Statkraft, who intend to continue powering the charging points with 100% renewable energy from its own portfolio.

Statkraft, via its 100% owned subsidiary Gronn Kontakt UK Ltd, will take on the current electric vehicle charging network staff in the UK and will manage, operate and maintain the charging stations.

Statkraft has recently strengthened its position in the European charging market, having acquired Norwegian EV charging company Gronn Kontakt in December last year and German EV charging companies E-Wald and eeMobility previously.
