Electric car charger AddÉnergie gets 12.8 million
Quebec City-based AddÉnergie has raised $12.8 million in venture capital from the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ) and Investissement Québec. The company manufactures smart charging solutions for electric vehicles.
The Caisse provided $8.5 million while Investissement Québec added $4.3 million.
“We are privileged to be making a tangible contribution to the future of transportation, not only in Québec but across the country,” said CEO Louis Tremblay.
The company already supplies charging stations, software and management services to the Electric Circuit and the VERnetwork, the two largest electric vehicle charging station networks in Canada. While AddÉnergie currently operates close to 2,000 charging stations, it feels the new investment will help it get to its goal of 8,000 new charging stations across Canada in the next five years.
“Our investment aims to further the development of leading-edge Québec expertise in a sector vital to our future. Alongside AddÉnergie, Investissement Québec is supporting a growth opportunity for Québec’s hybrid and electric vehicle industry,” said Pierre Gabriel Côté, CEO of Investissement Québec.
Founded in 2009, AddÉnergie calls itself the leader in innovative charging solutions. The company now has more than 50 employees, who work out of its head office in Québec City, its production plant in Shawinigan and its sales office in Mississauga, Ontario.

Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a really well written article.
I’ll make sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your
useful info. Thanks for the post. I will definitely comeback.
I need to to thank you for this wonderful read!!
I certainly loved every little bit of it. I have got you book-marked to check out new stuff you
I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours nowadays, but I by no
means discovered any fascinating article like yours.
It is lovely value sufficient for me. In my view,
if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably
did, the web will likely be much more helpful
than ever before.
I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both
educative and entertaining, and let me tell you,
you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough people are speaking
intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something
relating to this.
Good response in return of this issue with firm arguments and describing the whole thing on the topic of that.
