As part of the new concession, TotalEnergies will increase Amsterdam’s current network with 2,200 new EV charging points, to be installed by autumn, 2022.

The installation of 1,100 chargers, each equipped with two charging points, will give a boost to the Clean Air Action Plan of the Municipality of Amsterdam, which aims to have completely emission-free transport by 2030. One of the main challenges is to facilitate enough charging points to support the strong growth of electric vehicles.

Amsterdam has selected TotalEnergies, through its subsidiary TotalEnergies Marketing Nederland, as a partner to realise the increase in scale.

For the first time in Amsterdam, Total Energies will make large-scale use of charger clustering and expansion of the charging network will be partly based on requests from e-drivers. In addition, a data-driven approach will be used, in which the load on the current charging network is monitored to determine optimal locations.

When charging demand on the current charging network is high, chargers will be proactively added. In this way TotalEnergies says there will always be enough charging points to meet demand. To further shape the required scaling-up and the growing demand for charging, as many clusters of chargers as necessary will also be installed in Amsterdam.

“With the installation of 2,200 new charging points in the city, we are taking the next important step towards cleaner air for all Amsterdam residents,” said Amsterdam Deputy Mayor, Egbert de Vries (Traffic, Transport, Water and Air Quality).

“Together with TotalEnergies, we will continue to work on the roll-out of a reliable charging network, which is essential for the transition to electric transport.”

For his part, TotalEnergies president, Marketing & Services, Alexis Vovk, added: “Our promises are to deliver 100% renewable electric charging services and user experience, aligned with their expectations. This offering will come in addition to the multi-energy mobility services TotalEnergies already provides to its customers across the Netherlands, serving both customers as well as professionals.”

TotalEnergies is already the largest EV charging operator in the Metropolitan Region of Amsterdam (MRA-Electric), which includes the three provinces of Noord-Holland, Flevoland and Utrecht, with more than 6,500 charging points in operation and accessible to the public.

TotalEnergies is also active in the operation of charging infrastructure in major European capitals and urban areas: London (Source London), Paris (Bélib) and the Brussels-Capital Region in Belgium, as well as in the B2B segment in Germany and throughout its service-stations network in Western Europe.

The company is pursuing its development in major European cities, in line with its ambition to operate more than 150,000 charging points for EVs by 2025.
