Hrvatski Telekom, GEN-I agree long-term cooperation on e-mobility
Croatian telecommunications provider Hrvatski Telekom, which operates the largest network of electric vehicle charging stations in the country, and Slovenian electricity supplier and trader GEN-I have signed an agreement on long-term cooperation in the field of e-mobility, enabling GEN-I customers in Slovenia and Croatia who drive e-vehicles to use all e-chargers operated by Hrvatski Telekom.
Hrvatski Telekom has developed a network of 150 charging stations across Croatia
Hrvatski Telekom has introduced solutions that enable private owners and lessees of parking spaces to provide e-charging services, developing a network of 150 charging stations across Croatia. The partnership with GEN-I will improve the user experience of e-vehicle drivers in both Croatia and Slovenia and enable a significant increase in the use of e-chargers in Croatia, according to a press release issued following the signature.
GEN-I already offers electric car charging at 200 stations in Slovenia
GEN-I, which develops new technologies for a green transformation, already offers electric car charging at 200 stations in Slovenia, and the cooperation with Hrvatski Telekom will now expand its network by another 150. Users of GEN-I’s e-mobility service pay for electric vehicle charging through their monthly bills for electricity supplied by the Slovenian company.
A successful transition to e-mobility requires a positive user experience, which the Slovenian company creates with its GEN-I e-mobility service, reads the statement.
Dino Novosel, head of e-mobilty at Hrvatski Telekom, said following the signature that this partnership brings e-mobility even closer to people in the region. “We are building a better, green future, and we are enjoying it,” said Novosel.
This project is also expected to encourage a number of owners of electric automobiles from Europe to plan longer trips to Croatia, since now they will be able to charge their vehicles while in the country, according to the statement.
