BLOOMBERG estimates there will be 600 million electric vehicles on the road by 2040 — and Wallbox is building the infrastructure to power them. The company offers a range of charging and energy management solutions for residential, business and public clients in 98 countries. Wallbox was founded in 2015, with headquarters and a recently inaugurated manufacturing facility in Barcelona. It has invested around $11m into the initial construction of a new plant in Texas — and raised $167.5m in funding thus far. The BV jury announces Wallbox as the 2022 Best Smart Charging Systems (Southern Europe) award winner.
