has·to·be CEO Martin Klässner is proud of this impressive tally – but he’s nowhere near satisfied. Klässner has been a key driver in the eMobility field since as long ago as 2008, helping to develop the sector with a series of innovations. And the goal hasn’t changed: to bring electrification to Germany and the whole of Europe, ensuring easy, convenient access to eMobility. He sees the charging infrastructure and a seamless experience for eDrivers as the decisive factor in achieving this.
- Over 5 million charge sessions since 2008
- On average, a new charging session powered by the be.ENERGISED platform begins every six seconds – that’s up to 11 times per minute
- Total energy delivered via be.ENERGISED: 103 million kWh
A Personal Success Story
With the growing range of eCar models and focus on eMobility, the pressure on the industry to expand the charging infrastructure increases too. Market barriers have to be broken down and the road to climate-neutral mobility smoothed by the decarbonisation of the transport sector. The strategic focus here needs to be the faster, more efficient development of a Europe-wide infrastructure, interoperability, industry benchmarks and transparent, open, standardised communications protocols. be.ENERGISED addresses exactly these issues – with the goal of enabling scalability for charging infrastructure operators and allowing eMobility service providers to offer a comprehensive service.
The numbers speak for themselves: An eDriver charges up at a unit powered by our be.ENERGISED cloud software every six seconds on average. And over 103 million kWh of charging energy has flowed during the course of more than 5 million charging sessions.1
A Mobility Revolution
“We no longer need to ask ourselves whether eMobility has hit the mainstream,” remarks Klässner. “I’m proud of the degree to which our software and innovative eMobility services have shaped the European eMobility market – and are continuing to do so. We’re driving the expansion of the European charging infrastructure and international interconnectedness – because we want to see climate-neutral eMobility that transcends borders. So we’re working flat out every day to make reliable, accessible charging possible.”
That has·to·be has been so successful is also thanks to its strong clients and partners, such as European eMobility providers IONITY, EWE Go, and Volkswagen, as well as leading players in the retail, energy, automotive, and telecommunications industries. “I owe a big thanks to my team, which has made our success possible by contributing so much enthusiasm and so many innovative ideas,” adds Klässner. “And I’m also grateful to our more than 500 clients, who are all driving the mobility revolution with us on a daily basis.”
