Innogy, a subsidiary of German utility RWE, has announced that it is entering the U.S. market through a new subsidiary - innogy e-mobility US LLC. Hopefully they go with some other name in their advertising promotions.
The headquarters of the start-up is to be in Los Angeles, California; that state, along with the other ZEV states, will be the main target for ongoing operations as a technology and service provider for charging solutions.
In Europe, innogy has installed more than 5,700 charging stations (mostly AC).
Peter Terium, CEO of innogy SE said:
"We are firm believers in the future of electric mobility. For this reason, innogy is working constantly to drive forward the expansion of clean, climate-friendly mobility. In Germany, we are already the leader in terms of number of charging points. Now we want to continue this success in the U.S.. For there too, electric mobility and climate protection are a mega-topic for many states and big cities – and we have the innovative solutions for tomorrow’s traffic."
Martin Herrmann, COO Retail of innogy SE said:
"I am delighted that in Cameron Funk we have gained a pioneer in the American e-mobility industry. With his outstanding body of work, network in the industry and comprehensive experience, he will be leading our business in the US market."
Cameron Funk is to manage innogy e-mobility US LLC as its first CEO. His previous role was Director of Business Development for ABM Industries Inc.
