According to a study carried out by E.ON at the national level, about 22% of respondents know that energy suppliers also offer e-mobility solutions.
The company installed, in the first six months of 2023, about 95 charging stations for electric cars, and the total number of installed units rose to 375. This year, the company estimates that a total of 200 charging stations will be installed for various categories of customers.
At the same time, the number of charges made in the first half of 2023 (H1) doubled compared to the same period last year, exceeding 18,000 sessions, and the amount of energy exceeded 330,000 kWh, increasing by 160%. Through the E.ON Drive solution, the company’s customers contributed to a reduction in their carbon footprint by 130 tons of CO2.
At the same time, the company rewards customers’ efforts to have a greener and more sustainable future, planting a tree for every 10 kWh fueled at E.ON Drive stations. Thus, during the annual planting campaigns, carried out in 2021 and 2022, 34,000 saplings were planted.
E.ON Drive, the first turnkey solution dedicated to electric car owners, residential, business or municipal customers, was launched in 2018.
E.ON Energie Romania was also involved in the development of a national network of public charging stations along important transport corridors (Iași-Tg. Mureș, Iași-București, Bucharest-Constanța), through the NEXT-E project, financed by European funds.
Of the approximately 3,700 public charging points for electric cars in Romania, the 1,000 belonging to E.ON Energie Romania and Renovatio are integrated, starting in November 2021, in the Hubject e-roaming platform. Thus, E.ON Drive and Renovatio e-charge users will be able to access all the charging points operated by the two companies using both mobile applications and RFID cards, thus contributing to an extensive increase in the mobility of electric vehicle owners in Romania.
