Antitrust authorities approve joint venture between DKV and Innogy, managing directors appointed

German, Austrian and Polish antitrust authorities have given the green light for the joint venture Charge4Europe, founded on December 11, 2018 by DKV Euro Service and innogy, a leading German energy company. Charge4Europe will offer all-in solutions to operators of electric commercial vehicle fleets throughout Europe, with plans to offer public charging services throughout Europe.

The future joint venture offers benefits for retail customers and corporate customers alike, and fleet operators with electric vehicle or hybrid vehicle fleets in particular. Employees will be able to recharge their vehicles regardless of the service provider, with costs billed as a single invoice. Toll payments can also be billed conveniently using this system. The services provided by each company are mutually complementary. With around 7,000 networked charging stations, innogy is one of the leading operators of charging infrastructure in Europe. DKV Euro Service boasts decades of experience as mobility service provider. The company manages billing services for 170,000 customers, covering refuelling, road tolls and EV charging.
