Vattenfall InCharge, an electric vehicle (EV) charging services provider, has entered into a co-operation with DAS FUTTERHAUS, a German pet food and accessories retailer, to install 170 high-power charging points at nearly 70 locations across Germany.
DAS FUTTERHAUS will offer customer parking spaces in front of its stores, while Vattenfall InCharge will handle the planning, construction, and operation of the EV charging stations.
Tomas Björnsson — Head of E-mobility at Vattenfall and the charging solutions network InCharge said: “Vattenfall has identified several ambitions to reach our 2030 commitment. One important step is the ambition to operate 25 times as many electric charging points compared to 2020.
“The electrification in the transport sector is happening all over Europe and the electrical vehicles that will run on our streets will need charging possibilities. We are pleased to have DAS FUTTERHAUS as a partner with whom we can jointly drive the energy transition forward.”
Initially, Vattenfall InCharge will install 85 charging stations with 170 charging points at almost 70 locations between 2022 and 2023. Following this, the partners will look to equip all the DAS FUTTERHAUS’ 400 plus stores with charging infrastructure.
According to Vattenfall, the owner of Vattenfall InCharge, the charging stations in Germany will be part of its network across Northern Europe. Presently, Vattenfall InCharge is claimed to have 28,000 EV charging points connected to the network.
Lutz Sommer – Head of Environment & Energy at the DAS FUTTERHAUS group of companies said: “We are pleased to support our customers in switching to more climate-smart electric mobility by offering fossil-free charging power at many DAS FUTTERHAUS stores.
“This way, customers can both shop with us and charge their vehicle at the same time.”
