Mobilize Fast Charge will comprise 200 sites in Europe by mid-2024, with six charge points, each adding up to 1,200 plugs. In addition, most stations will be at Renault dealerships located near motorway and expressway exits.
In France, Mobilize will install 90 stations – or one ultrafast station every 150 km on France’s trunk roads. However, the charge points will be open to drivers of any electric cars who hold Mobilize recharge cards in order to enjoy preferential rates.
“Mobilize Fast Charge is helping by providing all electric vehicle drivers with access to ultrafast charging points whatever brand they drive,” said Clotilde Delbos, CEO of Mobilize. “To make this happen, Mobilize is leveraging two of Renault Group’s strengths: its granular sales network and Mobilize Power Solutions’ expertise.”
Drivers will eventually be able to charge their vehicles 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition, travelling from Hamburg to Seville made easier.
Preferential access to a rest and service area
The installations will also include a rest area for drivers to enjoy some coffee or a snack, use the Wi-Fi connection, or charge their phone or laptop before going on with their journey. Holders of the Mobilize recharge cars will also enjoy preferential rates throughout the Mobilize Fast Charge network.
An innovative solution that limits the impact on the power grid
In order to reduce Mobilize Fast Charge stations’ impact on the grid, the charging mechanism relies on a smart energy management system combined with stationary capacity using EV batteries and in some areas, solar power from photovoltaic panels. In addition, the storage system will be able to deliver a full 600 kW of immediate power, even when few cars are charging at the same time. The system also cushions its impact on the national grid, lowers the cost of connections and provides an ultrafast charge at the best price for people with EV.
Mobilize Power solutions, the expert for charging solutions
The entire project is managed by Mobilize Power Solutions, Mobilize’s specialist when it comes to tailored charging solutions for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Following its expansion in the corporate market, and among customers, Mobilize Power Solutions now brings its expertise to long-distance drivers. Mobilize Power Solutions also conducted preliminary studies to determine the best locations and size of each station, for the entire Mobilize Fast Charge network.
