Since 2019, the Norwegian e-Mobility charging infrastructure market has grown around 20% per year, and is expected to increase in the coming years. As a major e-mobility partner in Norway, Eltel has several ongoing framework agreements to install both public and private infrastructure, including rapid charging solutions.

“We are focused on working on long-term nationwide projects with major customers where we can deliver on a large scale,” says Ole Jorstad, Project Manager at Eltel. “We have a well-established nationwide expert partner network that supports us to successfully deliver projects.”

Reorganisation to capitalise on growth

In 2022, Eltel reorganised its e-Mobility business with a more defined structure to better serve new and existing customers in this rapidly growing market. This also involved networking at international e-mobility events, further developing partnerships and entering into new customer agreements.

“There are many opportunities in e-Mobility in Norway and, during the year, Eltel became the nationwide service provider for Siemens to address warranty issues for rapid charging stations,” says Ole. “In 2022, we also further developed our existing collaborations with players such as E.ON, Delta Electronics and Alpitronic.”

Eltel’s international cooperation on e-Mobility

Eltel has established an e-mobility forum for its Nordic businesses to share knowledge and experience. Most of Eltel’s e-mobility competence is currently concentrated in Norway and Finland. “We will develop our e-Mobility forum in 2023,” explains Ole.

“There is huge potential in this kind of international cooperation – not least as we have several customers in Norway who are looking to roll out projects in the other Nordic countries.”
