Naturgy plans to build a network of more than 1,100 charging points to power the electric car. The public infrastructure of fast and semi-fast chargers would be installed in urban environments, in populations of more than 50,000 inhabitants.
The company plans to develop a public infrastructure of fast and semi-fast chargers in urban environments. The chargers will have an installed power between 22 and 150 kW and will save 760,000 tons of CO2 per year.
Naturgy plans to build a network of more than 1,100 car recharging points based on renewable energy in Spain to promote the implementation of the electric car. According to a plan presented to the Ministry of Ecological Transition, the Ministry of Industry and the Ministry of Science and Innovation, the planned infrastructure will prevent the emission of 760,000 tons of CO2 per year.
The company chaired by Francisco Reynés plans to develop a public infrastructure of fast and semi-fast chargers in urban environments, populations of more than 50,000 inhabitants with the obligation to have low-emission zones, and interurban in the main communication routes every 200 kilometers.
The deployment of the proposed infrastructure will cover the entire territory, thus allowing electric vehicle users to have a sufficiently wide mesh to guarantee supply at any point in the geography.
It is planned to take advantage of the synergies of existing facilities to connect the recharging points in electrical connections that provide service to other facilities, such as vehicular natural gas (NGV) stations, achieving optimization of the use of said facilities by means of an adequate power balance.
Naturgy foresees an accelerated deployment of 450 electric power hubs of renewable origin nationwide. The deployment will be associated with the development and implementation of 5G technology and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity.
This project is aligned with the strategic lines defined by the European Union regarding the decarbonization of transport, as well as with the National Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, which aims, among other initiatives, to promote the massive deployment of recharging infrastructure such as key to the promotion of the electric vehicle, the driving force behind the capital goods industry and the development of new business models.
