Along with the addition of this California-based team and its profound expertise in the EV driver experience and agile technology development, the deal also provides innogy with full access to Recargo’s leading electric mobility app, PlugShare.

PlugShare is the leading network-agnostic electric vehicle charging application in the US and gives EV- drivers accurate, up-to-date charge point data regardless of its operator. With the app and its database, innogy can now offer a software solution with extended access to POI data all over the US and Europe to provide excellent quality for the electric mobility solutions of innogy’s customers.

Recargo is an excellent addition to our existing US activities. 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.

“We are very excited about the acquisition of Recargo. 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. “The PlugShare database has the largest and most accurate public charging map in the world. For our customers this means the highest quality charging data in our software solutions."

Simon Loeffler, CEO of innogy emobility US, concludes: “The acquisition of Recargo is very exciting for all of us. We not only gain access to great information technology resources and best-in-class UI & UX know- how, but also invest in a brilliant team of EV experts!"

“We are proud to become a part of innogy", states Brian Kariger, Chief Executive Officer at Recargo. “We are looking forward to working with innogy teams worldwide, continuing our focus on the EV driver experience. Together we can use our joint expertise to further advance the international electric mobility market in ways not possible alone."
