In Paris, a number of car parks are being equipped with 1,100 AC charging points for electric vehicles. The car park operator Saemes has chosen TotalEnergies and the telecommunications provider Sogetrel as partners for this project. Some charge points are already in operation.
The largest completed project is the Madeleine-Tronchet car park in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, which now offers 505 charging points with outputs ranging from 7 kW to 22 kW. These are Type 2 wall boxes without a permanently attached cable. However, charging at a 230-volt socket is also possible, i.e. for vehicles such as the Renault Twizy. A zone with 30 charging points is specially designed for electric two-wheelers.
More than 240 charging points have also been installed in the Porte d’Auteuil car park and a further twelve in the Jean Bouin car park, both in the 16th district.
In addition to the already completed facility in Madeleine-Tronchet, another large-scale project is planned in the 8th arrondissement: More than 350 charging points in the Saint-Augustin Bergson car park are to follow in the coming weeks. This would create 855 charging points in the 8th arrondissement alone.
The charging points are accessible via the TotalEnergies fleet card or other charging cards – ad-hoc charging is also possible via QR code and mobile website. Starting a charging process costs 0.50 euros, after which 0.40 euros (including VAT) is charged for each charged kilowatt-hour.
“Saemes is responding to the wish of the city of Paris to equip 50 per cent of the parking spaces in this car park with charging stations,” says Saemes Managing Director Ghislaine Geffroy about the installation at Parkahus Madeleine-Tronchet. “The milestone of 1,000 charging points to equip our car parks in the Ile-de-France region will be reached by the end of 2022.”
Philippe Callejon, Director of Mobility and New Energies France at TotalEnergies, adds: “The installation and operation of more than 500 charging points at the Saemes car park in Madeleine-Tronchet, currently the largest in France, is part of TotalEnergies’ ambition to develop electric mobility and make it accessible to as many people as possible.”
