ONEPOLE to launch “revolutionary” charging product and prepare for European expansion

This new product promises to address one of the main challenges facing the charging sector. It will not only be distributed in Norway but also Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and the Netherlands. What are ONEPOLE's plans?

During the International Mobility Portal Summit organized by Mobility Portal Europe, Radmila Govertsen, Product Manager at ONEPOLE, shares with the audience the company’s upcoming steps.

Firstly, Govertsen mentions the launch of a new product.

“It is a revolutionary base, as it will be easier to assemble, mount, and place on the ground, facilitating the effortless installation of the pedestal,” she says.

She adds, “We will be conducting joint testing with the pedestal, something that has not been done before.”

It is worth mentioning that in Norway, where the company is based, bases are typically used for light poles and street lighting and have not been tailored for electric vehicle (EV) charger pedestals. 

“At first, we started producing our products because electricians approached us as they needed to install chargers but lacked suitable supports or required specific pedestals for each device installation,” the Product Manager indicates.

This was costly and made the swift acquisition difficult.

These industry challenges led Q-Light AS to develop a solution, ONEPOLE: a universal pedestal or support so much for charger manufacturers, charge point operators (CPOs), and installers.

For the company, the equipment must be “easy to install, whether you are in Norway with minus 20 degrees or in Spain with over 40.”

In which countries will ONEPOLE expand?

During the event, the Product Manager reveals that one of ONEPOLE’s short-term plans is to standardize its product portfolio.

We are expanding to Europe, including Scandinavian countries, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands, and the list goes on,” Govertsen indicates.

And she continues, “We are addressing the specific challenges of charger placement in these regions”.

In this vein, the Norwegian firm intends to focus on developing its supports in various locations, understanding that certain adjustments will be necessary due to the differing characteristics of each place.

Furthermore, Govertsen states that they do not rule out installing their products in “forgotten” or overlooked spaces such as “campsites or boat harbors, where charging infrastructure is also in demand.”

Additionally, she highlights the position of Scandinavian countries over other European nations: “We have been in Norway for four years and see that Scandinavia, in general, is advanced in charging infrastructure.”

Indeed, the numbers for the countries that make up the peninsula are favorable.

According to data from the European Alternative Fuels Observatory (EAFO), Norway is at the forefront with 25,743 charging points and 89.4 per cent of new electric cars registered in April 2024, according to the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA).

This means that 10,051 zero-emission units were registered in the fourth month of the year, representing an increase of 34.5 per cent compared to the same period in 2023.

Meanwhile, Denmark reported the existence of 26,040 charging points, with EVs representing 42.9 per cent of the car market, with 6,580 additions, translating to an 89.8 per cent increase compared to April of the previous year.

Finally, Sweden, the country with the most infrastructure of the three, counted 42,211 stations after the first quarter of 2024.

As for the automotive market, electric cars represented 30.9 per cent of the total in April.

This is because 6,801 new EVs were registered, representing a decline of 1.8 percent compared to the same time in 2023.


ONEPOLE’s product.

ONEPOLE is an exclusive production line created by the company Q-Light, specializing in manufacturing various types of universal aluminum pedestals for all major EV chargers.

It is characterized by its sustainable and scalable system, offering a long lifespan and a future-proof solution for all environments.

The primary consumers of their products are CPOs and charger manufacturers who need to mount their hardware. 

They provide a prototype of the equipment so that ONEPOLE can create exact supports to fit the pedestal.
