New pilot project offers fast charging services at supermarkets in Frankfurt

EV charging infrastructure developer Fastned has announced a new partnership with supermarket chain REWE Region Mitte to install and operate fast chargers at their outlets. The partnership will start with a pilot at four REWE Region Mitte supermarkets around Frankfurt in Germany, with a view to expanding the partnership to additional locations.

 

The aim of the pilot is to test the interest of EV drivers to fast charge their vehicle while shopping for groceries. From the perspective of REWE, the addition of fast charging services to their supermarkets is another step to offer their customers the best shopping experience. For Fastned, REWE supermarkets represent a great addition to the firm’s growing network of fast charging stations. 

 

The sustainable mission of both companies is reflected by the use of wood in the station and supermarket. Moreover, Fastned’s stations are powered exclusively by 100-per-cent sustainable energy from local sources.

 

“We are excited by this partnership with REWE because they have an extensive network of suitable locations and because sustainability is part of their mission,” enthused Michiel Langezaal, CEO of Fastned. “We are confident that we can provide a valuable service to customers of REWE and grow the number of fast charging stations in the future.”
