Total has joined ChargeUp Europe, the voice of the electric vehicle charging industry in Europe.
The membership of TOTAL reflects its strong commitment to electro-mobility and its support for the core principles and goals of all members of ChargeUp Europe: providing EV drivers with a smooth charging experience, promoting investment and developing a consumer-centric, open charging business model.
The Alliance, which was formed by Allego, ChargePoint and EVBox Group, now has nine members, just over six months after the launch of ChargeUp Europe.
As its membership continues to expand, ChargeUp Europe looks forward to continuing to actively contribute to discussions on EU-level policy initiatives that can facilitate the safe, successful and consumer-friendly implementation of charging infrastructure across the EU.
“We are delighted to be the first broad energy company to join the ChargeUp Europe alliance. The EU has been a pioneer on the path toward carbon neutrality while Total is pledging to achieve net zero emissions in Europe by 2050 or earlier. As all electric mobility players on the continent, we have therefore a key role to play. In this context of a gradual switch towards Net Zero mobility, our ambition is to operate 150,000 EV charging points by 2025. Joining the ChargeUp Europe alliance will facilitate advocacy for policies that encourage investment and facilitate the adoption of electric vehicles at the European level.”Pierre Clasquin, EV charge vice-president at Total.
