The Dutch retailer Albert Heijn joined forces with Eneco eMobility to build charging stations at its branches in Belgium and the Netherlands. Plans for this year include the installation of 120 fast-charging stations, each with two charging points before the expansion continues.
By 2025, Albert Heijn plans to have at least 2,000 charging points installed. The supermarket chain says this was in reaction to seeing more and more electric cars on their car parks. Albert Heijn added it also wanted to make it “easier for its customers to make a rational decision to use a sustainable form of transport to come to the store, in addition, of course, to cycling or walking.”
The stations supplied by Eneco will use 100% green electricity with Eneco HollandseWind. The companies did not disclose any technical details.
Eneco eMobility is part of the Dutch utility Eneco. The subsidiary since its founding has scored partnerships with cities such as Amsterdam and Rotterdam and with carmakers. Ford counts on Eneco eMobility to supply wall boxes to customers in BeNeLux. Jaguar also works with Eneco through the latter’s smart charging subsidiary Jedlix.
