Review of the year 2022 with reev

We look back on the eMobility year 2022: Electric mobility has grown rapidly, and we were able to contribute our part hand in hand with our partners and customers. With each new charging infrastructure project, we accompany our customers on the path to sustainable and future-proof mobility.

eMobility Review 2022 

In November, the VDA reported a record high for new registrations of electric cars: For the first time, more than 100,000 electric cars were newly registered in Germany, a 50 percent increase compared to the same month last year. The 100,000 new registrations mark was also exceeded in December. If you include plug-in hybrids, the new registrations with plugs would account for a market share of over 50%. The range of electric cars on the market is growing rapidly, and the ranges of the vehicles are increasing – making eMobility accessible to more and more people.

According to the Federal Network Agency, the number of charging stations in Germany rose to a total of 70,751 charging points in October 2022, referring exclusively to publicly accessible charging points. This is about 45 percent more than a year ago. To achieve the goal of 1 million charging points by 2030, the federal government decided in October on the Master Plan Charging Infrastructure II – a new cross-departmental overall strategy aimed at building a widespread and user-friendly charging infrastructure in Germany over the next few years. The expansion of charging infrastructure and the simplification of charging processes are also planned at the European level. The European Parliament intends to establish user-friendly and simple payment systems across Europe with the AFIR (Regulation on the Infrastructure for Alternative Fuels).

A particularly important factor for the ramp-up of electric mobility in 2022 was the introduction of the GHG quota in Germany. The greenhouse gas reduction quota rewards electric car drivers and charging infrastructure operators with additional income of several hundred euros. We also support our reev customers in this respect and handle the trading of GHG quotas upon request. Since July 2022, we have been able to claim GHG quotas for a total of 1,200 vehicles. Another 300 reev customers also use our function for public charging points’ GHG quotas. Thus, we manage the GHG quotas of over 1,400 charging points. In total, we have been able to generate additional income of over 500,000 euros for our customers in this way.

reev is CO2 neutral  

Stopping climate change plays a central role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions through CO2 neutral mobility. But as a company, we also see ourselves as responsible for mitigating climate impacts and offsetting our greenhouse gas emissions. For the year 2021, we therefore offset our emissions and were officially certified as CO2-neutral by Climate Partner. This neutralized 149,536 kg of CO2 in 2021. With this, we contribute to the so-called 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, which we aim to expand in the future.

reev at the Light + Building   

Throughout the year, we had numerous opportunities for intensive exchange and personal conversation with customers and partners at various regional and international trade fairs. One of the event highlights of 2022 was the successful participation in Light + Building 2022, where we could demonstrate how the reev cloud software, with numerous new products, makes eMobility easy, future-proof, and profitable for everyone: From reev Connect to ABL reev ready to our new network cabinet reev Pulse. With the launch of the reev Energy Management, we enable cost-efficient and demand-oriented use of available power at charging points.

reev becomes E-Marken Partner 

By signing the E-Brand Partner contract of the ZVEH quality alliance at the international leading trade fair Light + Building 2022, we once again highlighted the importance of the electrical trades for the realization of sustainable charging infrastructure. “And this is exactly where the electrical trades play a central role: We need widespread charging infrastructure that meets the increasing demand and requirements and is simultaneously easy to implement. We are very pleased to be part of the E-Quality Alliance from now on and to use synergies to actively promote the expansion of eMobility together,” said reev CEO Eduard Schlutius.

reev expands to the Netherlands 

With the international major project together with the European Patent Office, reev successfully entered the Dutch market: 250 charging points were installed in full service at locations in Munich and The Hague. The entire charging infrastructure can now be conveniently and centrally controlled and managed from anywhere via the reev dashboard.

Eduard Schlutius, reev CEO, Elected to the Board of ChargeUp Europe

Since January 2021, we have been a member of the European eMobility Association ChargeUp Europe. In February this year, Eduard Schlutius was elected to the board. This allows us to actively contribute to accelerating the development of charging infrastructure in Europe and shaping it according to the needs of electric car drivers.

New Office Spaces in the Heart of Munich

More space for successful collaboration: reev is growing – therefore, we are creating space for efficient teamwork and a comfortable office atmosphere: In the fall of 2022, we moved into our new business premises in the heart of Munich.

reev Team Growth

The reev team nearly doubled in size in 2022. We started the year with 53 employees. Now, at the end of the year, we are closing with a team of 97 highly qualified and motivated employees from 20 different nations at our locations in Munich and Zagreb. All passionately pursue the same vision of sustainable mobility powered by renewable energy.
