Qwello is a vertically integrated developer, manufacturer, operator and maintainer of public charging infrastructure using a highly innovative, practical and driver-friendly solution that provides local authorities and private organisations with fully privately funded innovative, user-friendly public on-street EV charging solutions.

Their groundbreaking approach prioritises innovation, practicality, and driver-friendliness, providing fully privately funded, user-friendly public on-street EV charging solutions to both local authorities and private organisations.

Founded in 2017, Qwello was born from the frustration of unreliable and difficult to use charging solutions. In a short span, the company has cemented a formidable presence across Europe, successfully deploying thousands of public destination charging points in countries including Germany, Sweden, Spain, Poland, France, and the UK.

UK Expansion
Qwello made its debut in the UK in late 2022, making an impactful entry by installing 50 world-class charging stations in The City of London. These strategically located stations are near iconic landmarks such as the Tower of London, St. Paul's Cathedral, Smithfield Market, and The Barbican. Furthermore, Qwello has secured contracts with Essex County Council, the Metropolitan District of Solihull, and East Lothian. By 2024, the company aims to install a minimum of 300 additional contactless cable-attached 22 kW AC on-street charging points across these regions.

Qwello’s Advanced Charging Solutions
Qwello's fast charge points offer up to 22 KW of AC power through socket charging and/or up to 11kW of AC power via a distinctive integrated retractable plug and cable in a protective drum reducing trip hazards. 

Our unique modular charging poles feature multiple payment options including access thanks to built in contactless credit/debit card, and can also come with additional optional features like built-in WiFi, 5G antennas or air quality sensors.

Qwello’s charging network solutions are loved by drivers thanks to features such as a highly rated smartphone app that shows available points, reserves them, and navigates drivers to their destination. Thanks to an integrated smart parking sensor which spots nuisance parking, if anything changes en-route, another is automatically reserved, or drivers are guided to an alternative charging station nearby making the reservation function a seamless experience.
