Companies Plan European Network of Car Charging Stations

Monday, 22 January 2018 05:43 AM

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Two companies say they plan a network of fast-charging stations for battery-powered cars in Europe that will help drivers of electric vehicles travel among the region's main cities.

Allego and Fortum Charge & Drive said Monday they envision 27 e-charging hubs in 20 countries that accommodate different charging methods and speeds at the same location. The idea is to connect metropolitan areas with a consistent charging network so people can drive not just within metro areas but also from one to the other — without worrying whether they can charge up.

Rollout is expected to start after financial details are completed in mid-2018.

The project comes amid several separate efforts by auto companies, service station operators and utilities to build charging networks for longer-distance travel.
