Electric vehicle drivers in Southeast Europe can now use a newly developed application to locate EV charging stations installed by ProCredit banks. The stations are currently available to the general public free of charge.

To date, ProCredit Group has installed 54 EV charging stations at various locations in Albania, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kosovo*, North Macedonia, Romania, and Serbia, and an additional 100 will be deployed by the end of the year, reads a press release by the ProCredit group.

The application ProCredit Electric Stations is available from Google Play and the Apple store and can be used by anyone – not just ProCredit’s clients.

The application allows users to:

  • Access a map with the locations of EV charging stations (Google Maps)
  • Select a charging station to view technical data
  • Receive driving directions to the station
  • See pictures of the station for improved last-mile navigation.

The application was developed by Quipu GmbH, the group’s own IT company, continuously improving the application. In parallel, all ProCredit banks are working on expanding their network of charging stations.

The ProCredit group has a strategy to mitigate negative impacts on the environment by financing and promoting activities and sustainable practices. In line with this strategy, ProCredit aims to promote electromobility as a contributor towards decarbonization.

ProCredit group has managed to increase the share of EVs in its fleet to more than two-thirds

“This aim is illustrated by the group’s fleet of electric vehicles. In some of its countries of operation, the group was one of the first to import e-cars, and since 2016, it has managed to increase the share of electric vehicles in its fleet to more than two-thirds (197 out of 300 cars – 79 fully electric, 91 hybrids, 27 hybrid plug-ins),” the bank said.

Besides vehicles, ProCredit has decided to solve another issue – infrastructure and supply. The group has invested in its very own EV charging stations (supplied by renewable energy wherever possible) and plans to expand this network even further by the end of the year, the bank said.
