Paris and Madrid, January 30, 2024 – TotalEnergies and Wenea announce today an agreement in view of building a leading player in electric mobility in Spain by developing a network of high-power charging hubs.
As a first step, TotalEnergies announces that it has acquired Nordian CPO, a subsidiary of Wenea group, which owns 200 charging sites from Wenea's branded network. These 200 sites, supplied entirely with renewable electricity, are located along major highways and in urban and peri-urban areas in all 17 regions of Spain.
Moreover, TotalEnergies and Wenea are pursuing their discussion to establish a strategic partnership in view of pooling their expertise and skills in infrastructure, power distribution and mobility to build and invest together in high-power charging hubs.
"We are pleased to acquire this nationwide network of fast and ultra-fast charging points and are willing to build a solid partnership with Wenea, a pioneer in EV charging in Spain. Spain has Europe's fifth largest automobile fleet, and the proportion of electric vehicles is expanding rapidly. For TotalEnergies, this is a great opportunity to extend our network in Europe and stake out a position as a benchmark high-power charging player in Spain. This announcement also confirms the Company's commitment to the energy transition in the country, where TotalEnergies has a business portfolio of more than two million contracts of gas, electricity and related services and is developing numerous solar projects, for a total production capacity of over 3 GW," said Mathieu Soulas, Senior Vice President New Mobilities and Marketing at TotalEnergies.
"This is a leadership race to serve millions of customers country by country. This new agreement between Wenea and TotalEnergies, a major global multi-energy company, will represent a winning proposition. We are proud to partner with TotalEnergies to deploy the leading high-power charge point network. Our innovation, Digital strategy, customer focus and leadership in charging services, make Wenea a unique player in the EV market,” said José Manuel Zorrilla, President of Wenea.
