In a report published at the beginning of June this year, the International Energy Agency (IEA) recorded some two million electric vehicles on the road in 2016, representing an increase of 60% over 2015! As a stakeholder in the green mobility sector, ENGIE has a strong presence in this fast-growing market.
Convinced that electric vehicles will revolutionize mobility, particularly in central urban environments, ENGIE has recently acquired EV-Box, a Dutch company that has installed more than 40,000 electric vehicle charging points in more than twenty countries. ENGIE has already installed more than 5,000 charging points in Europe, and has orders to provide more than 4,000 more.
In 2016, it was the ENGIE subsidiary ENGIE Cofely Luxembourg that was selected as part of the consortium containing the startup company Powerdale to provide and maintain 800 public charging points throughout Luxembourg.
These successes confirm the Group’s status as European market leader for this type of infrastructure.
