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) in Germany. These charging points will be grouped in “EV hubs” at 134 locations in eastern, central and western Germany and will entirely be supplied by renewable energy.

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 the country. 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’ charging technology in Germany

“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.”
