European fast charging network operator Fastned has partnered with German supermarket chain REWE for a pilot that will test the interest of EV drivers in fast charging while shopping for groceries.
The partnership will start with a pilot at four REWE Region Mitte supermarkets around Frankfurt, and the companies intend to expand it to additional locations.
Fastned’s stations are powered exclusively by sustainable energy from local sources.
“REWE [has] an extensive network of suitable locations, and sustainability is part of their mission,” said Michiel Langezaal, CEO of Fastned. “We are confident that we can provide a valuable service to customers of REWE and grow the number of fast charging stations in the future.”
