Paris/Berlin, 27 September 2023 – TotalEnergies has been awarded a contract for the installation and operation of 1100 high-power charge points (HPC) for electrical vehicles (up to 200 kW) as part of the German government's tender for the "Deutschlandnetz" ("Germany network"). These charging points will be grouped in “EV hubs” at 134 locations in eastern, central and western Germany. These new charge points will entirely be supplied with renewable electricity.
One of the biggest tenders in Europe
The tender launched by the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) aims at establishing a nationwide, needs-based and user-friendly fast-charging network of 8,000 additional charge points, at more than 1000 sites throughout Germany. In this context, TotalEnergies will install these 1,100 high-power charge points in rural and urban areas.
High Power Charging (HPC) is a technology that enables compatible electric vehicles to recharge at a power of over 50 kW and up to 300 kW. Depending on the type of vehicle, this level of power can restore a range of 100 kilometers in 6 minutes, and recharge around 80% of the battery in around 20 minutes.
TotalEnergies, a leading player in electric mobility
This latest contract will contribute to the Company’s ambition of operating more than 1,000 high-power EV hubs in Europe by 2028.
After winning in June 2023, the contract to install and operate 500 public charging points (11 kW) for electric vehicles in Berlin, TotalEnergies confirms its role as a major player in electric mobility in Germany and has already installed over 4,500 charges points in the country. TotalEnergies takes over not only the investment but also the entire process from conceptual design and structural implementation to the operation and maintenance of the charging infrastructure.
To ensure a seamless charging experience for electric vehicle drivers, TotalEnergies will equip all its hubs around Europe with various differentiating services such as sanitary and catering facilities and ensure an access to various established payment functions.
"This award represents an outstanding opportunity to make our state-of-the-art HPC hubs available to an even greater number of customers and thus significantly accelerate the market ramp-up of electric mobility in the country. Through this development, TotalEnergies demonstrates its capacity to secure prime locations for HPC-based electromobility in Europe", said Thierry Pflimlin, President Marketing & Services, at TotalEnergies. "In Germany, as in all the markets where we are developing in the field of electric mobility, we are committed to offering a sustainable and reliable charging infrastructure to effectively meet our customers’ needs.”
