  • A total of 800 charging points are being built in Ghent

    A total of 800 charging points are being built in GhentThe French energy group TotalEnergies has won a tender from the city of Ghent, which includes the installation of 800 new charging points by 2025 and their operation for ten years. For Total it is the third such order from a major Belgian city.


    A distribution between AC and DC charging points is not mentioned in the total notification. There is only talk of 800 new charging points that are to be set up in addition to the existing infrastructure - so mostly AC charging points are likely. The charging points are to be operated exclusively with green electricity generated in an offshore wind turbine off the coast of Belgium.

    The exact locations have not yet been determined. The city council has agreed with Total that, with the announcement on Tuesday, individuals and businesses in Ghent (residents, taxi companies, car sharing companies, local businesses) can apply for a charging point to be installed near their premises or workplaces. In addition to these suggested locations, the city wants to analyze the use of the previous charging points - in this way, the existing infrastructure should be able to be strengthened in districts with high demand.

    In September TotalEnergies had already been awarded the contract for the long-term expansion and operation of the charging infrastructure in the Belgian city of Antwerp. TotalEnergies operates the Charge.Brussels charging network in Brussels . Altogether, that's already 3,500 charging points, 3,000 of which are in Antwerp. In addition, TotalEnergies emphasizes that it is developing a “complete network of high power chargers” at its filling stations across the country. Charging points with up to 175 kW are to be built there.

    “We would like to thank the city of Ghent for the trust they have placed in us for the next decade,” says Bernadette Spinoy, CEO of TotalEnergies Marketing Belgium. “As in the other European markets in which we are advancing our development, TotalEnergies is resolutely supporting the mobility transition in Belgium towards CO2 neutrality. This new contract will help accelerate our transformation into a broad-based energy company. "

    Filip Watteeuw, the deputy mayor of Ghent responsible for mobility, adds: “This expansion of our public charging infrastructure is intended to offer a solution for drivers who do not have their own charging station at home or at work. The number of charging stations will increase significantly by 2022 so that we can support the transition to electromobility. ”
