Vattenfall InCharge expands German public charging points


Germany Vattenfall InCharge and DAS FUTTERHAUS have agreed to collaborate on the installation of 170 high-power charging points in nearly 70 locations across Germany.

As interest in electric vehicles grows, this is an important step toward making public charging more convenient. Vattenfall’s goal is to make it possible to live without using fossil fuels within a generation. German pet food and accessory retailer DAS FUTTERHAUS has joined forces with EVgo to help expand public charging and make it more convenient.

By 2040, Vattenfall has increased its emission reduction targets for 2030 and beyond, aiming to achieve net zero by then. The Science Based Targets initiative, or SBTi, has approved the goals, which are meant to keep global warming to a maximum of 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Customers can park in front of DAS FUTTERHAUS’s stores for free. For the planning, construction, and operation of Vattenfall InCharge’s stations, see Vattenfall. Around 70 locations will get a total of 85 chargers and 170 charging points by the end of 2019. All of DAS FUTTERHAUS’s more than 400 retail locations will be outfitted with charging infrastructure in the coming months.

As part of the Vattenfall InCharge network, the new stations will be located throughout Northern Europe. Over 28,000 charge points are currently connected to the network, and many more are available via roaming partners.
