Renovatio and Kaufland inaugurate the first fast hub for electric cars in Romania and Eastern Europe

Kaufland Romania and Renovatio Group inaugurated on 2018, October 25th the first fast hub for electric cars in Romania and Eastern Europe, located in the parking lot of the Kaufland store, Barbu Vacarescu Street in Bucharest.

The hub allows the simultaneous charging of 6 electric vehicles. The novelty and the main benefit of it being that three of them will be able to load quickly, at a power of maximum 50kW. In this way, most electric models present on the Romanian market will be able to reach 80% of the battery capacity in less than an hour. There are also 3 semi-fast charging points, with a power of 22 kW.

Over 95 percent of the energy used for the electric car charging stations, comes from renewable sources. The Renovatio e-charge network currently has 92 upload points in 38 locations, of which 75 load points are installed.

“Creating charging hubs for electric vehicles is part of the Renovatio’s strategy of developing the urban infrastructure in big cities. This is our way of trying to cover the needs of those who are working in at a fast pace, for whom the reduced charging times are a priority. The infrastructure of the charging stations in the transit areas is as important as the ones in the urban zones for the stimulation of the mass adoption of electric vehicles. Through the FastSEE project, co-financed by the European Union through the CEF Transport program, Renovatio will cover with the fast and ultra-fast charging stations two of the main corridors of the TEN-T pan-European transport network that transits our country until the end of 2020. Many of the locations are chosen on the basis of the the partnership with Kaufland Romania. The 53 fast charging stations will be placed at a maximum distance of 80 km one from another, while the 3 ultra-fast charging stations will be installed in Timisoara, Sibiu and Bucharest,” said Alexandru Teodorescu, Managing Partner Renovatio Group.
