Fastned partners with REWE
Companies start pilot to offer fast charging services at four large supermarkets in Germany around Frankfurt
Amsterdam, 9th of October 2018. Today Fastned announces a partnership with REWE Region Mitte to install and operate fast chargers at their supermarkets. The partnership will start with a pilot at four REWE Region Mitte supermarkets around Frankfurt. The intention is to expand the partnership to additional locations.
The aim of the pilot is to test the interest of EV drivers to fast charge their vehicle while shopping for groceries. From the perspective of REWE the addition of fast charging services to their supermarkets is another step to offer their customers the best shopping experience. For Fastned, REWE supermarkets are a great addition to its growing network of fast charging stations. The sustainable mission of both companies is reflected by the use of wood in the station and supermarket. Moreover, Fastned’s stations are powered exclusively by 100% sustainable energy from local sources.
Michiel Langezaal, CEO of Fastned: “We are excited by this partnership with REWE because they have an extensive network of suitable locations and sustainability is part of their mission. We are confident that we can provide a valuable service to customers of REWE and grow the number of fast charging stations in the future.”

Fastned is building a European network of fast-charging stations where all electric cars can charge as fast as possible with 100% renewable energy. The stations are located at high traffic locations along the highways and in cities, where EVs can charge in approximately 20 minutes. Fastned’s goal is to build a European network of one thousand fast charging stations. This will give electric drivers the freedom to drive across Europe. As of today, Fastned has 85 stations operational in The Netherlands and Germany. Fastned is preparing the construction of fast charging stations in The Netherlands, Germany, The United Kingdom and Belgium. Fastned is listed on the Nxchange stock exchange.
Fastned is rolling out its network of fast charging stations in response to the rapidly increasing numbers of EVs in Europe. Car manufacturers are investing billions of Euros in the development of, and production capacity for, EVs. More and more EVs are hitting the roads, which drives the need for charging infrastructure.
