Promising business sector
KEBA has been active in the area of electromobility since 2009. At that time, the Austrian automation expert started developing its own line of charging stations. The basis for this development was decades of experience in electronics manufacturing combined with extensive knowledge of ATM construction. Shortly thereafter the company presented its first prototype of a charging station. The first two years saw around 600 charging stations put into operation.
Exponential growth in this business sector led to the sale of more than 6,000 wall boxes per month. With around 150,000 units sold so far, the KEBA KeContact is among the three most popular charging stations in the world. And as always, 100% developed and produced in Linz, Austria.
Electromobility is booming
“In contrast to the current trend of stagnating to declining new car registrations, the electromobility market is growing in double to triple digit rates,” says Andreas Plotz, Executive Sales at KEBA. Greater ranges, lower purchasing costs and a larger selection of models are making electric cars a real alternative for an increasing number of people, Plotz added. “We are convinced that this is only the beginning since the historic technology shift from internal combustion engines to emission-free electric drives has just started.”
The charging station for today and the future
With the release of its third generation, the KEBA KeContact wall box has gained a great deal more in intelligence. Equipped with a whole host of technical features and communication interfaces, the KeContact is capable of not only charging, but also controlling, communicating and networking.
Thanks to its ability to integrate into smart homes, backend systems or photovoltaic systems combined with its MID certified meter for billing, this wall box meets all the requirements of electromobility – not just today but also in the future.

KEBA with many innovations at Power2Drive
Since 'Power2Drive' could also be the motto of the electromobility business unit of KEBA Energy Automation, we can't miss out on the trade fair in Munich. This year, visitors can look forward to a particularly large number of innovations at our booth.
100,000 charging stations sold
The Austrian automation company KEBA has been active in the electric mobility market since 2009.

KEBA wallboxes in "down under"
Our distribution network for electromobility has grown so much that the wallbox KeContact P30 now even reaches the other end of the world! Thanks to our sales partner and e-mobility provider EVSE, our wallbox can now even be found at the airport in Adelaide! Adelaide Airport is the first in Australia to offer charging stations for electric cars.
