TotalEnergies is to add 2,200 new chargers to Amsterdam’s current public EV charging network by the autumn of 2022.
The 1,100 chargers, each equipped with two charging points, will boost the Clean Air Action Plan of the city, which is aiming for completely emission-free transport by 2030.
For the first time in Amsterdam, Total Energies will make large-scale use of clustering of chargers.
A data-driven approach will be used, in which the load on the current charging network will be monitored to determine optimal locations.
TotalEnergies aims to operate more than 150,000 EV charging points in major European cities by 2025.
Deputy Mayor (Alderman) Egbert de Vries (Traffic, Transport, Water and Air Quality) of the municipality of Amsterdam said: “With the installation of 2,200 new charging points in the city, we are taking the next important step towards cleaner air for all Amsterdam residents.
“Together with TotalEnergies, we will continue to work on the roll-out of a reliable charging network, which is essential for the transition to electric transport.”
Alexis Vovk, President Marketing & Services at TotalEnergies added: “This partnership with the City of Amsterdam will support TotalEnergies’ ambition to further accelerate its transformation into a broad energy company.
“We are delighted with the trust the municipality is giving us for the coming years and we will bring our expertise to support the evolution of its citizens’ mobility.
“Our promises are to deliver 100% renewable electric charging services and user experience, aligned with their expectations.
“This offering will come in addition to the multi-energy mobility services TotalEnergies already provides to its customers across the Netherlands, serving both customers as well as professionals.”
