TotalEnergies to Install and Operate 800 New Charge Points in Ghent, Belgium

TotalEnergies has won a call for tenders from the municipality of Ghent, Belgium’s third largest city, for the installation and operation of electric vehicles public charging stations, with 800 new public charge points by 2025. With this agreement, the city of Ghent will enhance its public network for EV. These new charging stations, to be installed by TotalEnergies and operated for the next ten years, will be supplied with 100% renewable electricity generated by offshore wind power in the North Sea off the coast of Belgium.

In accordance with the process agreed on with the City, individuals and professionals in Ghent (residents, taxi companies, car-sharing firms, local businesses) may start, as of today, to submit requests for charge points’ installation near their premises, workplaces or homes. To optimize the existing network, the City of Ghent will also analyze the usage rate of EV charging stations already in operation to determine if the current offering should be reinforced with additional charge points in certain districts.
