Green Mobility Franklin Energy partnership

The global leader in the provision of shared electric vehicles, GreenMobility, has launched its unique service in the North of England, appointing Franklin Energy as its preferred charging installation provider.

Sustainable car sharing in major cities is a fast-growing trend. The Copenhagen-based enterprise has consolidated its unique service provision in its home city and is now rolling the concept out in Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester, all cities that have recently revealed details of their ambitious environmental targets.

Depots and charging stations will be installed at strategic locations within each of the cities with users having access to the cars via the GreenMobility app and fees charged per minute. GreenMobility operate 400 electric vehicles in Copenhagen, a figure that is rapidly rising.

Robert Byrne, Managing Director of Franklin Energy commented: “Shared electric car driving is part of the next natural step in the electric vehicle evolution. Our Scandinavian neighbours are undoubtedly leading the way in terms of EV driving, and GreenMobility, pioneers in this area, are now pushing this concept out across Europe.

“We’re incredibly pleased to partner with GreenMobility on their UK expansion and will be installing some charging points in the three designated cities across the coming 6-9 months.”

Franklin Energy has supported the specification of the EVBox business line charger, chosen for its rapid and efficient charge qualities.

Rob continued. “We look forward to building further on our experience in the installation of charging points through a brand new, innovative and unique EV service in the UK. We are seeing a lot of exciting developments in the electric mobility space and are proud to be part of the movement that is helping our cities reach their ambitious climate goals.”
