Sustainable and Circular

At Vigor, sustainability and innovation go hand in hand. By embracing sustainability and driving innovation, we strive for a greener future for everyone. We are continuously working on improving and making everything we do more sustainable. We are fully focused on the energy transition and contribute to various Sustainable Development Goals.

Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth

We create local jobs for people from all backgrounds. As a recognized training company, many people also work in production who would otherwise not be able to find work.

Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities

Thanks to our collaboration with We Drive Solar, Utrecht is the world’s first bidirectional region. We strive for greener cities and support municipalities, governments and companies in sustainable mobility.

Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production​

We produce locally, on solar energy, and with European components. Our charging stations are designed for a long lifespan and are largely recyclable.

Goal 17: Partnerships for the goals

We believe in partnership. Together you can achieve much more. We work closely with various parties to make a real impact in the field of e-mobility. Think of the DOET Association, ELaad, We Drive Solar, Equans, Koolen Industries, municipalities and provinces.

Our story: Born from a unique collaboration

1989
NieuweWeme was founded

This company starts by producing panel construction solutions and later expands production to large-scale, sustainable solutions, including charging stations.

2018
Collaboration We Drive Solar

NieuweWeme is starting an ambitious process with We Drive Solar to produce the best bi-directional charging station for public spaces in the Netherlands.

2021
Takeover Koolen Industries

NieuweWeme is taken over by Koolen Industries, placing the focus entirely on sustainable solutions for the energy transition.

2023
Vigor Founded

Vigor Charging was created from this collaboration. One party with a particularly strong network and an unprecedented amount of knowledge and experience.

"Bundling the knowledge and experience gained over the past 30 years of the various companies within Koolen Industries Products Group with regard to the charging ecosystem was a logical step. With the bundled in-house knowledge in Vigor, we want, together with important partners like We Drive Solar, making a difference in the transition to sustainable mobility"

The future

Real V2G experience

At Vigor, our technology is ISO15118-20 certified. Our chargers, in collaboration with We Drive Solar, are the first to actually charge back to the grid. One of the best-known projects was in Utrecht, where 1,100 charging stations were installed, making it the first bidirectional city in the world.

This was done with 25 Hyundai Ioniq 5s. This will continue in 2023 and 2024 with V2G-enabled Renault 5s.
