Virta ranked as fastest growing electric vehicle charging company

Virta has been ranked as the fastest-growing electric vehicle charging platform in Europe by the Financial Times as part of its 2020 FT 1000 list.

The FT 1000 ranks Europe's fastest-growing companies annually - Virta's overall ranking on the list is 179.

Virta was founded in Finland in 2013 and has expanded globally across 28 countries with over 300 charging network owners operating using the company’s charging platform.

The company offers charging solutions to EV drivers, private home owners, workplaces, commercial parking, car dealers, energy utility companies and charging point network operators.

Jussi Palola, Virta chief executive, said: “The pace of transition from oil to electricity is now accelerating exponentially with digital energy platforms like Virta driving the new energy economy.

“The growth is currently coming mainly from Europe, in future also from other continents.”

Other smart transport innovators were also highlighted in the FT1000, including ride hailing company Bolt in third place overall, as well as parking apps Parkster and Yourparking.
