Installation of fast charging stations in southern German cities by EnBW & OMV-installation

The construction of a new fast charging network is to be started in southern Germany. This is due to this under the leadership of the Baden-Wurttemberg Energy Sustainery EnBW and the Austrian mineral oil company OMV. The plan is for the fast-charging stations to supply e-cars with enough energy within just three minutes for them to be able to cover the next hundred kilometers.

100 so-called high-power charging charging stations (HPC) with an output of 300 kilowatts are to be installed for this purpose. In the long term, the performance of the HPC charging stations could be increased. Of course, this depends on the vehicles available on the market, because there are currently no compatible e-vehicles at the dealerships.

In contrast to the fast charging alliance IONITY – consisting of BMW, Daimler, Ford and Volkswagen – EnBW and OMV concentrate on locations in inner cities. The first fast-charging stations are to be set up before the end of this year. All 100 stations should be in place by the end of 2019. In the long term, up to eight charging points are planned for each location. An official confirmation from the two companies is still pending.
