We look back on the eMobility year 2022: Electromobility has grown rapidly and we were able to make our contribution hand in hand with our partners and customers. With each new charging infrastructure project, we accompany our customers on their way to sustainable and future-proof mobility.
Review eMobility 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, an increase of 50 percent compared to the same month last year. The 100,000 mark for new registrations was also exceeded in December. If plug-in hybrids are included, new registrations with plugs would have a market share of over 50%. The range of EVs on the market is growing rapidly and the range of EVs is increasing – making eMobility accessible to more and more people.
According to the Bundesnetzagentur (Federal Network Agency), the number of charging stations in Germany has risen to a total of 70,751 charging points in October 2022, whereby this figure refers exclusively to publicly accessible charging points. This corresponds to about 45 percent more than a year ago. In order to achieve the goal of 1 million charging points by 2030, the German government adopted the “Masterplan Ladeinfrastruktur II” (Charging Infrastructure Master Plan II) in October – a new interministerial overall strategy with which a nationwide and user-friendly charging infrastructure is to be established in Germany over the next few years through numerous measures. The charging infrastructure is also to be expanded across Europe and charging made easier. To this end, the European Parliament wants to establish user-friendly and simple payment systems throughout Europe with the AFIR (Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation).
A particularly important factor for the take-off of electromobility was the introduction of the GHG quota in Germany in 2022. The greenhouse gas reduction quota rewards eCar drivers and charging infrastructure operators with additional earnings of several hundred euros. We also support our reev customers in this and take over the trading of the GHG quotas on 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 reev GHG quota function for publicly accessible charging points. In this way, we manage the GHG quotas of over 1,400 charging points. In total, we were able to generate additional revenue of over 500,000 euros for our customers in this way.
reev in numbers
reev is CO2 neutral
In order to stop climate change, the reduction of GHG emissions through CO2 neutral mobility plays a central role. However, as a company we also see it as our responsibility to reduce the impact on the climate and to offset our greenhouse gas emissions. For the year 2021, we have therefore offset our emissions and have been officially certified as CO2 neutral by Climate Partner. This means that we have already neutralised 149,536 kg of CO2 in 2021. This is our contribution to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, which we would like to further expand in the future.
reev at the Light + Building
Throughout the year, we had numerous opportunities for intensive exchange and personal discussions with customers and partners at numerous regional and international trade fairs. One of the event highlights in 2022 was our successful participation in Light + Building 2022, where we were able to show how the reev cloud software makes eMobility easy, future-proof and more profitable for everyone with numerous product innovations: from reev Connect to ABL reev ready to our new network cabinet reev Pulse. With the market launch of reev Energy Management, we enable the cost-efficient and demand-based use of available power at charging points.
reev becomes an E-Marken Partner
With the signing of the E-Marken Partner Agreement of the ZVEH Qualitätsbündnis (ZVEH Quality Alliance), we have also once again focused on the importance of the e-trade for the realisation of a sustainable charging infrastructure, especially in the context of the leading international trade fair Light + Building 2022. “And this is precisely where the e-trades play a central role: we need a nationwide charging infrastructure that meets the increasing demand and requirements and is easy to implement at the same time. We are very pleased to be part of the E-Qualitätsbündnis with immediate effect and to use synergies to actively promote the expansion of eMobility together,” says reev CEO Eduard Schlutius.
reev expands into the Netherlands
With the major international project together with the European Patent Office, reev has successfully entered the Dutch market: 250 full-service charging points were installed at the 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, is elected as a member of the Board of Directors ChargeUp Europe
We have been a member of the European eMobility association ChargeUp Europe since January 2021. In February of this year, Eduard Schlutius was elected as a member of the board. We are actively involved in accelerating the development of charging infrastructure in Europe and designing it according to the needs of electric car drivers.
New offices in the heart of Munich
More space for successful collaboration: reev is growing – that’s why we are creating space for efficient teamwork and a feel-good atmosphere in the office: in autumn 2022, we moved into our new business premises in the heart of Munich.
reev Team growth
In 2022, the reev team has almost doubled in size. We started the year with 53 employees. Now we close the year at our locations in Munich and Zagreb with a team of 97 highly qualified and motivated employees from 20 different nations. All of them are passionately pursuing the same vision of sustainable mobility with renewable energy supply.
