Despite the macro-economic and political challenges faced by all sectors in 2022, the electric driving sector has continued its growth unabated and we expect the same for 2023. It is true, in that, the ongoing supply chain constraints, have caused disruption to the supply of electric vehicles (EVs) in 2022, but we expect predicament to improve in 2023.

Along with the growth of the sales of electric cars, the electric car charging sector has also continued to flourish, as EV charging station manufacturers move from the start-up phase to scale. Easee, is a good example of an EV charger manufacturer rapidly moving to scale. Apart from scale, we are also witnessing continued innovation and product improvement from charging point manufacturers, and we can expect this to continue for the foreseeable future, as OEMs develop ‘smarter’ and more comprehensive charging solutions.

Company Overview: Easee


Easee is a relatively young EV charger manufacturer, set up by Norwegian entrepreneurs in 2018. However, Easee has gained market leadership in Norway, in a relatively short span of time. The company has also gained a strong presence in the broader Scandinavian region and continues to grow its geographic footprint, exporting to over 23 countries. The company has sold over 500,000 EV chargers.

Easee has been recognised for its Scandinavian influenced modern and minimalist design, blending easily into a residential or business environment. Apart from design, the Easee EV chargers are also technically strong and at par with some of the leading global EV charge point manufacturers.

The company employs over 250 individuals and continues to grow its workforce. The core vision of the three co-founders is to create the ‘world’s smartest electric vehicle charger’. The electric vehicle chargers are developed and manufactured in Norway. The company’s long-term vision also includes DC rapid charging.

The Easee EV chargers have much to offer for both residential and business EV charging needs. For a start, the EV chargers are developed and built to a high standard. In fact, the Easee EV chargers are manufactured in Norway. The company offers a 3 year warranty for its Easee One home charger and the Easee Charge commercial EV charger.

The intelligent EV chargers have been built to comply with the UK regulations, and are offered in multiple colour options. Few EV charger manufacturers offer the spread of colour options offered by Easee. Having said that, we at e-zoomed prefer the black EV charger. It looks smart and black is practical for the long-term.

The Easee electric car chargers are also weatherproof. The chargers have an IP54 certification, which is certainly helpful given the weather in the UK. However, we always recommend installing the EV charger at a location most protected from the elements. Easee EV chargers incorporate 11 sensors and intelligent temperature measurement to keep the EV charging operation safe.

The chargers also incorporates an integrated open PEN conductor protection (no need for earth rod), saving time and money during installation. The Easee charger weights 1.5 kgs, significantly less compared to some of the competitor EV chargers. Easee claims its chargers ‘save the environment at least 4 kg of copper and plastic per produced charger’.

The Easee commercial EV chargers also offer dynamic load balancing. Easee enables load balancing of up to 101 Charging Robots on a single circuit. Such chargers are suitable for premises that need to charge a number of electric cars simultaneously. For example, residential apartment blocks.

The company has a comprehensive vision for its long-term future. According to Easee “Our ambitions further lie in becoming one of the largest companies in green technology in Europe within 2026, and one of the largest in the world within 2031′.
