innogy buys electric vehicle software company Recargo

innogy eMobility has bought Recargo Inc., a software company for electric mobility in the US. With the acquisition, innogy expands its solution portfolio and strengthens its positioning as a technology provider in the American market.

Along with the addition of this California-based team and its expertise in the EV driver experience and agile technology development, the deal also provides innogy with access to Recargo’s electric mobility app, PlugShare.

PlugShare is a network-agnostic electric vehicle charging application in the US and gives EV drivers accurate, up-to-date charge point data regardless of its operator. With the app and its database, innogy can now offer a software solution with extended access to POI data all over the US and Europe to provide excellent quality for the electric mobility solutions of innogy’s customers.

PlugShare is the number one app for locating charging stations for electric cars and offers a complete database of all charging locations in the United States to more than 400,000 registered users and many others who have downloaded the app, use the PlugShare.com website, or access PlugShare data through partner API integrations. This makes traveling for EV-drivers easier and more confident and provides industry stakeholders market intelligence for planning and making critical infrastructure decisions.
