Free2Move eSolutions and NHOA launch the Atlas project for fast charging


To push on the diffusion of electric cars , especially in light of the European Commission's proposals on stopping endothermic from 2035 , many more & ugrave; balusters . The new Atlante project fits into this contextresult of the collaboration between NHOA (formerly Engie Eps) and Free2Move eSolutions (joint venture between Stellantis and Engie Eps, now NHOA). Specifically, this project involves the construction of the first fast charging network fully integrated with the electricity grid (vehicle-grid-integrated or VGI), renewable energy and storage systems.

Stellantis, the Gigafactory in Italy sorger? in Termoli: the new electrification plan 95

Auto 08 Jul

This infrastructure will be initially made in some countries of southern Europe and will become the preferred network for electric cars of the Stellantis Group (Network Atlante). In any case, it will be; open to all. Let's see the main details.

IMMEDIATELY ALSO IN ITALY We will leave from Italy, France, Spain and Portugal, countries defined as & quot; strategic & quot ;. According to the two partners, in these countries, 90% of the fast charging network needed by 2030 has yet to be developed.

In particular, according to the analysis carried out by NHOA and Free2Move eSolutions with the support of McKinsey & amp; Co: the penetration of electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles in Strategic Countries & egrave; expected to grow 26 times to 13 million BEVs by 2030, reaching 3 million by 2025, and demand for fast-charging & ldquo; on-the-go & rdquo; expects an increase of 46 times up to 9 TWh by 2030, and up to 1.9 TWh by 2025.

Given the great potential; of growth of these markets, the Atlante project plans to implement a capillary supply infrastructure within them. Specifically, there is talk of charging stations in over 1,500 sites , with approximately 5,000 VGI fast charging points integrated with storage systems and renewable energy by 2025 . 5 years more; later, the aim is to have charging stations in about 9,000 sites, with about 35,000 VGI fast charging points integrated with storage and solar.

Thanks to this initiative, the two companies & agrave; they expect to reach a market share of around 15% in public fast charging, in terms of size and customers, in all Strategic Countries, in order to ensure long-term sustainable positioning. Furthermore, thanks to the installation program, the aim is to have at least one station every 100 km of motorway (directly inside or near the entrances/exits) and strategic non-motorway sites such as in urban areas, in traffic nerve centers or in commercial establishments. In addition, the stations will be located in other selected locations or sites of great importance in densely populated urban areas.

But how will these infrastructures be structured? The refueling points will offer charging powers up to 200 kW . In addition, the stations will be equipped with shelters to make more pleasant waiting on very hot days and integrated with solar panels and storage solutions. An investment of between 100 and 140 thousand euros is expected per charging point integrated with storage, renewable sources and the electricity grid.

The investments will be made through the dedicated vehicle called & ldquo; AtlanteCo & rdquo; , which will be initially 100% owned by NHOA and financed with its own resources and other forms of financing, including, among others, the support of TCC as a main investor.

Si partir & agrave; from Italy and France from 2022 and then also to Spain and Portugal from 2023.
