The e‑mobility startup from Ingolstadt has set itself the goal of significantly accelerating the market ramp-up of public and commercial charging infrastructure and thus contributing to the energy transition and the change towards electric mobility. Specifically, Charge Construct sees itself as a full-service provider for holistic charging solutions. In addition to focusing on the construction of High Power Charging (HPC) charging parks, Charge Construct supports companies of all types and sizes from various industries in the implementation of charging infrastructure projects for their own corporate fleets.
The SEAC Group develops, constructs and operates technically high-quality solar power plants nationwide. With a track record of 1.4 GW and a project development portfolio of 2.2 GW, the Group is adding measurable value to future energy supply. The focus is always on creating added value for people and the environment. In addition to solar power plants, the SEAC Group also operates wind power plants and will now also be active in the field of electric mobility in the future with its investment in Charge Construct. In the course of the investment, the SEAC Group will also acquire the shares of the previous minority shareholders, who will thus leave the company. “We would like to give special thanks to our previous investors and shareholders who have believed in us and the success of Charge Construct since the very beginning and are now clearing the way for the next chapter,” say Charge Construct’s two founders and managing directors, Adrian Zierer and Tim Schwenk.
Charge Construct wants to bridge the gap to solar and photovoltaics with SEAC
Not only electromobility, but also the solar and photovoltaic industry is currently experiencing an unbroken and unprecedented upswing. Increasingly, solutions and technologies from these areas are in demand together. Using locally and self-produced solar power to charge electric vehicles is an obvious choice. With the addition of SEAC Group as a shareholder, Charge Construct secures access to renewable energy expertise and additional 7‑figure growth capital.
“We are increasingly finding that customers want solar and photovoltaics to be included in the concepts in addition to charging solutions for electric vehicles. Conversely, the topic of charging infrastructure often plays an important role as soon as customers start looking at solar and photovoltaics. However, there are hardly any companies today that can bring these two worlds together and offer them,” describes Adrian Zierer, Co-Founder and CEO of Charge Construct. “We were therefore on the lookout for a strategic partner who could provide us with access to these technologies and enable us to continue to operate independently in the e‑mobility industry. We have been in exchange with several potential partners and investors over the past months. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of them for the trusting and open discussions,” emphasizes Adrian Zierer. “With SEAC Group, we have now found such a partner and will be able to offer our customers integrated renewable energy concepts in the future. In addition, we will use Abdelilah Zaafarane’s entrepreneurial experience, especially with regard to scaling and internationalization of organizations, for us and the entire company.”
With the participation, SEAC Group expands its commitment within renewable energies and underlines its ambitions in the field of sustainability: “We are aware of the responsibility to create the necessary charging infrastructure of and for tomorrow in addition to the expansion of renewable energies. We are therefore particularly pleased to make this contribution with the Charge Construct team in the future” says Abdelilah Zaafarane, CEO and Founder of SEAC Group.
