Rebranding from Blue Corner to Blink

One of the pivotal moments of our journey was the rebranding from Blue Corner to Blink Charging. Following its acquisition in 2021, Blue Corner is now operating as Blink Charging, positioning the Company for further expansion in Europe. This strategic decision encapsulated our vision to evolve and align with our expanding services and offerings. Blink represents our commitment to fast, reliable, and accessible EV charging solutions that cater to the global evolving needs of our customers.

But our impact doesn’t stop at American shores. Blink Charging’s innovative products and services have left an indelible mark across the globe, in regions as diverse as Latin America, India, the UK, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Greece, and now, bringing the Company’s global experience and EV charging expertise to Belgium.

Highlighting Some Of Our Projects

Throughout the year, we embarked on various projects aimed at revolutionizing the EV charging experience. Among these, our focus on home installations stands out prominently. With a staggering 7500 new home chargers, 80% of which involved leasing arrangements, we’ve significantly contributed to making EV charging more convenient and feasible for homeowners.

This year we proudly launched three new Blink products such as the Blink PQ 100 , PQ 150 and the EQ 200.  This showcases the increasing demand for user-friendly charging technologies.

 

 

 

 

Blink EQ 200 - BluePoint At BluePoint venues in Belgium—Brussels, Antwerp, and Liège—we’ve installed a range of charging solutions.  At Brussels, we’ve set up 36 Dual Wall Boxes and 10 Classic Single Wall Boxes.  Meanwhile, Antwerp and Liège boast 30 and 45 EQ 200 chargers, respectively, contributing to the accessibility of EV charging at these high-traffic meeting & event venues.
