A network of 54 charging stations for electric cars to be ready by the end of 2019
Drivers of electric cars will have at their disposal a network of new charging stations for their vehicles. In this way, they will be able to move more freely within the area of operation of the Energa Group, which will offer a total of 54 charging points by the end of 2019.
Since the beginning of this year, Energa Obrót has already launched 4 new charging stations with a capacity of 2x22 kW. The first one was built at the car park by the waterpark in Sopot, and the other three outside the Tri-City: at the car park of the Neptune shopping centre in Starogard Gdański, the car park by the Tczew City Hall and at the car park of the Stara Kuźnia shopping centre in Grudziądz. As soon as the weather allows, horizontal and vertical marking will be introduced to ensure better visibility of the charging stations. In the coming months, the Energa Group will successively install new charging stations located by the main communication routes and in most of the large cities within the Energa Group's area of operation, e.g. by the Komfort shop in Gdynia.
Some of these 54 charging points for electric cars will be fast-charging stations, allowing the vehicle to be recharged to 80% of its batteries within 30 minutes.
Currently, Energa owns 11 stations and is gradually expanding its network of charging points for electric cars. In addition to the above-mentioned locations, they are also at Auchan Gdańsk shopping centre (ul. Szczęśliwa 3), in front of Municipal Offices in Sopot and the City of Gdańsk, at Lotos filling stations in Gdańsk (al. Zwycięstwa 13) and Gdynia (al. Zwycięstwa 165), and by Olivia Business Center at al. Grunwaldzka 472 in Gdańsk (two chargers). However, the Energa Group will not cease making its investments into the charging infrastructure for electric cars once the new charging points have been built by the end of 2019. In the following years, the company intends to continue this project, building at least 100 stations until 2022.
“Electromobility is continuously growing in Europe and worldwide. New cities declare to introduce or have already introduced a ban on the entry of combustion engine vehicles into city centres. Further reports published by independent research agencies confirm the increase in the share of electric cars also in Poland,” says Dariusz Chrzanowski, Vice President of the Management Board of Energa Obrót S.A. “As we follow current trends and take into account the natural environment, we strive for promoting and facilitating access to modern and ecological solutions, and the development of infrastructure in the field of electromobility is our key project” he adds.
