TotalEnergies has secured a contract to install and manage over 1,100 high-power charging points for electric vehicles (up to 200kW) in strategic locations across Germany. This initiative, supported by the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport, aims to establish an extensive and efficient fast-charging network, utilising High Power Charging (HPC) technology to accelerate the adoption of electric mobility in the country.
TotalEnergies has secured a contract to deploy and operate 1,100 high-power charging points (HPC) for electric vehicles (up to 200kW) in Germany. These charging points will be strategically located in “EV hubs” at 134 sites across eastern, central, and western Germany, and they will be powered entirely by renewable energy sources.
This contract was awarded as part of a tender initiated by the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV), with the objective of establishing a nationwide, demand-driven, and user-friendly fast-charging network consisting of 8,000 additional charge points at more than 1,000 locations throughout Germany.
High Power Charging (HPC) technology is at the core of this initiative, enabling compatible electric vehicles to recharge at power levels exceeding 50kW and up to 300kW. The capabilities of HPC technology vary depending on the type of vehicle, but it has the potential to restore a range of 100km in just 6 minutes and recharge approximately 80% of a battery in around 20 minutes.
