Over the next three years, E.ON and CLEVER will establish a network of 180 ultra-fast charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs) in seven countries connecting Norway to Italy.
The network is appointed as an EU flagship project and has received €10 million in funding from the European Commission, as part of the European Commission’s Connecting Europe Facility program (CEF.
In addition to the EU project, the partnership will also establish stations in Norway with the Norwegian service station chain YX.
Frank Meyer, head of innovation and B2C at E.ON, commented: “Together with strong partners, we are taking a joint step towards establishing a comprehensive ultra-fast charging infrastructure in Europe.
“It is a testament to our commitment to provide convenient e-mobility solutions for our customers in Europe. We see a reliable ultra-fast charging network in combination with our home and destination solutions as main prerequisites for a mass market adoption of electric mobility,” says Frank Meyer, Head of Innovation and B2C at E.ON.”
The 180 stations will be spread across seven countries. The majority of the locations will be built in Germany, followed by France, Norway, Sweden, UK, Italy and Denmark.
Each of the stations will provide two to six charging points and will be rolled out in Europe during the next three years. The first sites will be located in Germany and Denmark.
