Allego Holding B.V. the leading pan-European electric vehicle charging network today announced a partnership with G&V Energy Group, a young and dynamic Belgian company, active on the market of fuel stations with a strong focus on sustainability. G&V Energy Group is the biggest independent player on the Belgian market.
Today, G&V manages over 200 fuel stations under different brand names and operates 27 Breakpoint- shops. On top of the groups expansive network of stations G&V Energy group also provides a multi brand CAPS Card for customers that offers an online platform that allows for the smooth operation of fleet administration requirements, handles payments, and facilitates the easy return of tax and excise duties. Thanks to partner networks, the CAPS Card also offers its customers access to a network of over 2500 locations in Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, and France. CAPS also offers the possibility of electric charging in a network of 275 000 charging stations in Europe.
Allego and G&V Energy Group will enter a long-term High Power Charging partnership, to install Ultra-Fast Electric Vehicle charging stations at 100 energy hubs throughout Belgium. 12 locations are due to be realized this calendar year, starting with the Noorderlaan in Antwerp. All 12 locations are co-financed by the European Union. Where possible the charging stations will be installed under the existing canopy of the fuel station itself, but as sites expand the installation of Allego canopies is also foreseen. The Electric Vehicle chargers themselves will be kitted in Allego branding for easy recognition for EV drivers. For the longer term with utilization increasing, there is the potential to expand to additional 150 locations.
“We are thrilled to partner with G&V Energy Group as its builds on our companies’ mission to provide suitable EV charging solutions at the right place and time. Given G&V’s expansive network in Belgium this agreement will truly complement our existing network in Belgium and help create a solid network of HPC charging solutions across the country” comments Harold Langenberg Managing Director of Allego BENELUX. “This partnership also testimony to the leadership of the G&V team that recognizes that the electrification of road transport is no longer an abstract concept, but a long-term solution to one of the most pressing issues our world faces: climate change.”
“Together with Allego we are proud to announce this long-term strategic partnership. Both companies share a similar dynamic & progressive DNA, striving to pioneer the Belgian market of HPC-charging. We commit to transforming 100 of our key petrol-stations into modern energy-hubs equipped with the right facilities and Breakpoint-shops to grab a quick lunch or delicious coffee while charging.” Says Xavier Dewulf, CEO of G&V Energy Group. “Due to this collaboration and the strong network of Allego, we are able to offer our CAPS clients a future-proof solution to their fleet and the everchanging topic of mobility.”
