TotalEnergies will install up to 4400 public charging points in Flanders
TotalEnergies is to install up to 4,400 public charging points in Flanders over the next two years, the French energy group announced in a statement on Wednesday. The company has been commissioned by the regional authorities to install and commercially operate a charging service for electric vehicles in West Flanders and Flemish Brabant.
The new 22 kVA charging stations will be operated under the TotalEnergies brand for a period of 12 years and will be powered by wind-generated electricity from the North Sea.
Flanders intends to have 35,000 charging points on its territory by 2025. At the end of 2021, the region had 5,800 public charging points (AC) and 203 fast charging points (DC).
The French company has already won public contracts for the installation and operation of charging stations in Brussels, Antwerp and Ghent.
In Belgium, it is also developing a Very High Power (VHP) recharging offer (up to 350 kW) at its service stations on major roads and motorways and is proposing to install charging stations at its customers' premises, both professional and private.
