When KEBA presented its first prototype of a charging station for electric vehicles ten years ago, electric mobility was just a niche technology. “With charging stations for environmentally friendly traffic we have created a promising field for our future,” KEBA CEO Gerhard Luftensteiner remarked back then. 600 of these charging stations were installed within the first two years, mostly in the domestic markets of Austria and Germany.
Due to exponential growth in this business area, 35,000 charging stations were sold and shipped in the last fiscal year (April 2017 to March 2018). The 600 power charging stations in the beginning have now become approx. 6,000 stations produced per month and the number of employees in this business area has risen accordingly.
Ever since the home charging station was introduced in 2012, which replaced the first KeContact flex charging stations, 100,000 of these stations have now been sold worldwide! The anniversary wall box was delivered to KEBA’s customer Clever in Sweden, an electric mobility provider that has made a name for itself mainly due to its business model and holistic approach in the industry.
Andreas Plotz, Executive Sales for Electric Mobility at KEBA: *“We are very happy that our 100,000th wall box went to Clever in Sweden and that we can now celebrate this special milestone and our business relationship with Clever. Outside of our core markets and in the field of electric mobility, Scandinavian countries are our most important sales market and are taking a pioneering role.” *
Fredrik Nordin adds: “The high quality and reliability of KEBA charging stations have impressed us time and time again. We are proud to have installed the 100,000th wall box for one of our customers here in Sweden."

Our #GREENthankyou to Christian Clerici
With our #GREENthankyou wallbox, we want to thank personalities who – like us – are driving the mission of shaping a sustainable future and making remarkable contributions in terms of electric mobility and the energy transition. One of them is Christian Clerici – the Austrian eMobility ambassador.
Passing on charging costs to the employer the easy way
Electric company cars are often charged at employees' homes. The electricity used must be recorded separately from private consumption. With our new company car wallbox, we offer a charging station that enables automatic billing of the charging current with the employer.
That was the Light+Building 2022
5 days of Light+Building are behind us and with them many opportunities for intensive exchange and discussions with customers, partners and interested parties. Among the many visitors this year, KEBA's Digital Solutions aroused particular interest, i.e. the recently presented KEBA eMobility App for charging and managing the KeContact P30 wallboxes, but also the eMobility solution for hotels and companies.
