This year’s Scandinavian Touring Car Championship begins with a city race in Gothenburg, Sweden on June 8-9. The fifth and final event will be held Sept. 20-21 in Mantorp Park, close to Linköping, Sweden. Poland-based Ekoenergetyka will provide six Go 30kW plug chargers and eight 40/60 chargers on each race weekend.

Ekoenergetyka, which already has about 20% of the European market for electric municipal bus charging infrastructure, has been expanding in the market for passenger car chargers. The Nordic countries, which boast some of the world’s highest EV adoption rates, are a particular area of focus.

“Participation in this prestigious event will help us spread the word about our world-class charging equipment to charging point operators and EV drivers in these key markets,” said Ekoenergetyka CEO Bartosz Kubik. “By switching to EVs, the STCC has shown a true commitment to the future of the automotive industry, so we’re proud to partner with them.”

In April Ekoenergetyka launched its latest innovative solution, the Sat400 satellite and the Axon Side 360 DLBS intelligent power unit at the Nordic EV Summit in Oslo. The Zielona Góra, Poland-based company announced a contract in February to provide up to 140 chargers to Sweden’s Nobina, the largest Scandinavian public transportation operator, a deal that followed last year’s agreement for Wennstrom E-mobility to distribute its charging stations in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.

"Our partnership with Ekoenergetyka and their world-beating charging products is a core part of our push to electrify the STCC and create a sustainable future for motorsport,” said STCC CEO Micke Bem. “The motorsport environment puts all components of the charging infrastructure to the test, and we are delighted to feature Ekoenergetyka’s sophisticated charging solutions. We look forward to starting a groundbreaking season together in 2024, creating the world's first 100% electric national touring car championship."

Powerdot, Ionity

Last year Ekoenergetyka announced contracts to supply charge point operators (CPOs), which provide services to individual drivers, including Portugal-based Powerdot, which offers more than 3,500 charging points; Ionity, owned by carmakers including Audi, BMW, Ford, Hyundai-Kia and Porsche; and PKN Orlen, Poland’s largest fuel retailer, which also operates in Czechia and Germany.

Ekoenergetyka provides round-the-clock remote monitoring and repair services for its charging systems from its headquarters in western Poland. The company’s advanced systems allow it to address almost 60% of reported issues remotely.

Established in 2009, Ekoenergetyka grew out of an academic research project and now employs more than 1,000 people. Its expansion drive is backed by Enterprise Investors, a leading Central European private equity fund, which took a significant minority stake in 2022. The fund has announced plans to invest more than €45 million in e-mobility projects.
