EnBW and dm are equipping the first stores with fast charging stations-enbw

As early as 2021, customers of dm-drogerie markt should be able to charge their electric car/PHEV while shopping at 50 locations in Germany. This is the joint statement from EnBW and dm-markt in the middle of the week. Together, the two companies would like to further advance the expansion of the fast charging infrastructure for electric cars in Germany. The first 50 stores for this will be equipped with High Power Chargers (HPC), which enable ultra-fast charging. More are to follow – feasibility is currently being tested on up to 1.000 locations examined.

From EnBW’s point of view, the additional charging locations in urban areas make electric mobility even more suitable for everyday use. So it is easy for e-car drivers, even without private charging facilities, to charge their e-car quickly and conveniently while shopping at dm. The HPC charging stations have a charging capacity of up to 300 kilowatts. Depending on the technical equipment of your own e-vehicle, it is then possible to charge a range of 100 kilometers in just five minutes. This means that the battery is charged for many more journeys after shopping. “It is our aim to provide our customers with simple solutions that they can easily integrate into their everyday lives,” explains Timo Sillober, Chief Sales & Operations Officer at EnBW.

As with other EnBW projects, the dm charging stations are also operated with 100 percent green electricity. EnBW’s Chief Sales & Operations Officer explains: “With electromobility as an essential part of a sustainable corporate strategy, we are actively helping to make transport more climate-friendly.dm states: “It is important to us not only to make our range sustainable, but also to adapt the infrastructure in and around our dm stores to the needs of customers and the environment. Together with EnBW, we can enable our customers in the future to integrate sustainable mobility into their everyday lives,” says Marco SchOnaich, who is responsible for the realization of the electromobility offer as project manager for construction at dm.

SchOnaich also gives an outlook on what is possible in the future: “In order to advance the expansion of the fast charging infrastructure and our more than 2.000 locations in Germany to use sensibly, we are currently in talks with our landlords. In this way, together we can make e-mobility easily and comprehensively available to everyone.Finally, EnBW makes it clear: “As a location partner, dm with its more than 2.000 markets in Germany has enormous potential.”

To classify the EnBW activities: The EnBW hyper network grows and grows and grows. Most recently, we were able to report on EnBW‘s own flagship charging park and the fact that the toom DIY stores are equipped with the appropriate charging infrastructure. Then the announcement that all around 150 locations of the real estate investor Deutsche Konsum REIT-AG (DKR) would be equipped with a state-of-the-art fast charging infrastructure for electric cars. But that’s not the end of it. A further 80 ultra-fast charging stations for HELLWEG DIY stores and garden centers are to be set up, and the dm stores are also taking another step forward.

  1. Fast charging and suitable charging infrastructure in the local area are the most important factor for the rapid spread of environmentally friendly electric cars. In addition to the charging infrastructure, car manufacturers are still required to integrate fast chargers, both DC with >150kW and AC with >22kW, into the vehicles, even if charging at home works with much less.

  2. Why do I only have the feeling that this will first be implemented down in the south and here in the region only much later, if at all. We have around here in southern Lower Saxony, I think, 2 supermarkets with 50kW chargers (but at least free of charge). HPC will certainly not be free. But whatever. It’s important for many people to have such easy ways to charge their car when they can’t at home. If you can do that while shopping, that’s actually simply the best option. You spend 30-60 minutes in the supermarket anyway when you do your weekly shopping. Then a car is full on an HPC charger.

  3. It’s nice that the range of charging options when shopping is increasing.

    It would be nicer if politicians abolished the EEG surcharge on self-produced and consumed solar power and charged everyone (including industry) who draws electricity from the grid with the EEG surcharge. Even green electricity from the grid is often enough just a “beautified electricity mix”.

    If the industry wants to save on the EEG surcharge, it could invest in solar and wind power plants itself, then it would be a fair distribution of the costs of switching to green electricity.

    If all the electricity is really green electricity, then the EEG surcharge should be dropped and the costs should only be covered by the CO2 surcharge, then environmental protection would suddenly go very quickly.

    20 kWh x 0.30 euros per kWh = 6 euros.

    Back to the charging offer – everything over 30 cents per kWh should be banned by law across the EU in the future, so that environmentally friendly e-cars (in the future with 100% green electricity) are still worthwhile even if the “oil sheikh” largely “give away” their crude oil ‘ due to lack of demand.

  4. EnBW has an exemplary pioneering role here with fair prices. It’s a good thing that EnBW has left the Ionity group. In my opinion, the EnBW app and charging card from ADAC is one of the best on the market. Please also think about the type 2 charging options.
