In general, electric mobility in the US is experiencing a boom, and globally, the US is one of the most attractive markets for electric mobility."

PlugShare is an app for locating charging stations for electric cars and offers a complete database of all charging locations in the United States to more than 400,000 registered users and many others who have downloaded the app, use the PlugShare.com website, or access PlugShare data through partner API integrations. This makes traveling for EV-drivers easier and more confident and provides industry stakeholders market intelligence for planning and making critical infrastructure decisions.

The purchase enables us to offer our customers top notch IT-Services and leading electric mobility solutions", says Elke Temme Senior Vice President electric mobility at innogy SE.
