E.ON: joint venture con Clever per una rete di stazioni di ricarica ultraveloce in Scandinavia

08/01/2019 - E.ON e Clever hanno formato “Ultra-Fast Charging Venture Scandinavia”, una joint venture per realizzare e operare una rete di 48 stazioni di ricarica ultraveloce sulle autostrade di Danimarca, Svezia e Norvegia.

Viene così rispettato l’impegno preso col programma Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) della Commissione Europea per realizzare le 28 stazioni cofinanziate in Danimarca e Svezia, a cui si aggiungono le 20 stazioni norvegesi finanziate autonomamente. 

La rete sarà interamente operativa, secondo le previsioni, nel 2020 e potrà essere utilizzata dai sia clienti e-mobility di E.ON e di Clever sia da quelli di altri operatori.  La stazione di Halsskov in Danimarca è già aperta al pubblico, e nel corso di quest’anno la seguiranno numerose altre in tutti e tre i paesi scandinavi, inclusa la prima grande stazione flagship di Fredericia. E.ON Drive e Clever resteranno concorrenti su altri servizi, ed E.ON Drive Infrastructure realizzerà altre stazioni di ricarica ultraveloce in Italia, Germania, Regno Unito e Francia sempre nell’ambito del programma CEF.

“Questa joint venture è la dimostrazione che l’ecosistema dell’e-mobility funziona: istituzioni, aziende concorrenti e settori industriali lavorano insieme per raggiungere un obiettivo superiore: accelerare la crescita della mobilità elettrica. Con Clever condividiamo una visione e degli investimenti a lungo termine, e insieme procederemo per realizzare la nostra rete di ricarica ultraveloce in Scandinavia” ha commentato Frank Meyer, Senior Vice President Innovation & Customer Solutions di E.ON.

“Questo è un grande passo in avanti per i guidatori di auto elettrica europei. Grazie a questa nuova joint venture, stiamo entrando nell’era della mobilità sostenibile senza confini. Solo due anni fa, sognavamo qui in Danimarca di connettere le persone attraverso un’esperienza di e-mobility soddisfacente, senza né limiti né interruzioni, e adesso abbiamo ricevuto il via libera dalla Commissione Europea per queste stazioni di ricarica distribuite in Danimarca, Svezia e Norvegia” ha aggiunto Casper Kirketerp-Møller, CEO di Clever.

Comunicato in inglese

 Rapid roll out of dense network in Scandinavia
 First chargers opened in Halsskov, Denmark
Danish E-mobility Service Provider Clever and German E.ON form a joint venture for building and operating ultra-fast chargers along the freeways throughout Scandinavia. “Ultra-Fast Charging Venture Scandinavia” will aim to connect cities in Denmark, Norway and Sweden with a total of 48 ultra-fast charging sites. The joint venture is fulfilling a promise to the European Commission’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) program to build 28 co-financed sites in Denmark and Sweden. In addition, the joint venture will deploy 20 sites in Norway outside of the funding scope.
The joint venture will be a charge point operator, where the partners share the vision to provide more ultra-fast charging stations and better customer experience for drivers of electrical vehicles across borders. In 2020 all 48 sites are planned to be operational. E-mobility customers of Clever, E.ON and third party operators will get access to the charging stations.
“This joint venture is proof point of the e-mobility ecosystem at work, where governments, competitors and industries work together to achieve a greater goal – accelerating electric mobility. We share a long-term investment and vision with Clever. Jointly we will move ahead and deploy our ultra-fast charging network in Scandinavia”, says Frank Meyer, Senior Vice President Innovation & Customer Solutions at E.ON.
“This is a major leap forward for Scandinavian and European EV drivers alike. With this new joint venture, we’re journeying into the new era of borderless sustainable e-mobility. Only two years ago, this was a vivid dream on Danish soil of connecting people by frictionless, limitless, rewarding EV experience, and now we’ve been granted the green light from the European Commission, with several ultra-fast charging sites sprouting throughout Denmark, Sweden and Norway”, says Casper Kirketerp-Møller, CEO of Clever.
The joint venture just opened their first ultra-fast chargers in Halsskov, Denmark. Halsskov will be followed by several new sites in both Denmark, Sweden and Norway in 2019. The first large flagship site will be close to Fredericia opening in Q1 2019.
The two operators – Clever and E.ON Drive – will remain competitors in other service categories. E.ON Drive Infrastructure will furthermore deploy ultra-fast charging sites in Germany, UK, France, Italy as part of the EU CEF program.
