HelloFresh has selected PowerGo as CPO (Charge Point Operator) for its electric vehicles. PowerGo will initially install fast-charging plazas at 13 hubs in the Netherlands and Belgium. Each hub will have approximately 1,700 kW of charging capacity and will ensure that HelloFresh’s electric fleet can travel emission-free. PowerGo and HelloFresh are also exploring further expansion in other countries.
In this way, PowerGo makes it possible for HelloFresh to invest in the vehicles and to outsource the management of charging infrastructure to the specialist. The hubs are smartly controlled by using fast chargers, allowing the vehicles to charge on time. With this, PowerGo, together with the solar parks and energy storage, creates a so-called virtual power plant, so that there will be less load on the total electricity grid.
The Dutch company PowerGo has set a goal of realizing more than 5000 fast charging points throughout Europe within 2 years. The first step was taken at the beginning of this year, with a fast charging point at PowerField’s solar park in Emmen. PowerGo guarantees that the electricity supplied for 100% comes from self-generated solar energy. As of now, more than 500 fast charging points are on order and PowerGo is ready for a large-scale rollout of charging points.
PowerGo currently has offices in the Netherlands and Spain and is working on developments and rollouts in Germany, Belgium and France, among other countries. Furthermore, a number of major collaborations will be announced in the near future. Want to know more about PowerGo? Read it on PowerGo.
