  • Kempower has achieved a significant landmark in its business growth strategy by launching in the North American market.

  • The U.S. is expected to become the world’s fastest-growing EV market, with several new clean technology policies soon due to be introduced as legislation.

  • The company’s chargers will help meet the growing demand for fast charging solutions by owners and operators of electric passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and mobile work machines.

Leading rapid EV charging technology provider Kempower has launched its Kempower C- and S-Series product range to the North American market, a crucial milestone in its growth strategy. The company will first operate in North America through its global and local partners.

North America needs to urgently expand its network of fast-charging EV stations to help reduce emissions from the transportation sector in the fight against climate change. The U.S. currently has approximately 43,000 public EV charging stations and around 120,000 charging ports, though the vast majority of these are AC charging devices (Level 2) rather than DC chargers (Level 3), which offer rapid charging. Nevertheless, expansion plans are already in motion, with Electrify America planning to double its number of fast-charging stations in the U.S. and Canada by the end of 2025.

Kempower will initially offer its Kempower C- and S-Series Level 3 fast charging solutions to the U.S. and Canadian markets following confirmation of certification according to Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) standards from Intertek Group’ ETL Mark. The company’s chargers will help meet the growing demand for fast charging capabilities in sectors including electric passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and mobile work machines. The product offering will expand later with the Kempower T-Series movable fast charger.

Commenting on Kempower’s North American market launch, Tomi Ristimäki, the company’s CEO, said:

“We’re very excited to expand into North America. The region’s market is growing and internationalizing rapidly, which requires us to move quickly to meet customer demand. According to market research, the U.S. will soon be the world’s fastest-growing EV market. This trend is supported by the country’s new clean technology policies, including the infrastructure bill that President Biden signed into law in late 2021, which included US$7.5 billion in funding for EV charging.” 

”We’ve already gained a strong foothold in Europe, especially in the Nordics, which is a pioneer in e-mobility. Our fast charging technology is designed by EV drivers, and we’ve received excellent feedback on our solutions, especially our intuitive, state-of-the-art user interface. We’re eager to see North American EV drivers experience rapid charging through Kempower.”
