EDI, Belgium’s leading installer of charge points for electric vehicles, has acquired Belgium solar panel installation company Go-Solar
The acquisition, says EDI – a contraction of Electric by D’Ieteren – offers motorists the opportunity to be both a producer and a consumer of green energy. D’leteren will now offer photovoltaic panels and batteries, alongside EV charge points.
Denis Gorteman, CEO of D’Ieteren says, “The acquisition of Go-Solar by EDI is a strategic operation which, by simplifying the customer experience through a complete offer, will contribute to promoting electromobility in Belgium. It contributes to reducing the carbon footprint of mobility and is directly in line with our mission to work towards fluid and sustainable mobility for all.”
Founded in 2008, Go-Solar is a family business active in the Flemish regions and the plan is to extend its activities to the whole country by capitalising on the business potential offered by its merger with EDI.
Nicolas Paris, CEO of EDI added, “Vehicles equipped with a charging socket should occupy a 50% share of new vehicle sales from 2025. By acquiring Go-Solar, we are seeking to make life easier for our customers by offering them a complete electrical ecosystem and relying on the recognised expertise, the quality of the teams and the reliability of the Go-Solar installations.”
