Allego to deliver another 419 EV charging stations in Flanders
Dutch Allego, daughter of the electric network managing company Alliander, is to deliver another 419 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations for Flanders. After winning the tender for the first 650 ones, it reeled in the second tender too, part of Minister of Energy Bart Tommelein’s (Open-VLD) plan for 2.500 charging stations.
The deal got lots of critic last year as Alliander is the Netherlands’ major network administrator, owned by provinces and municipalities. Smaller Belgian competitors complained not being able to compete with the bottom prices of the Dutch.
Under fire in Holland
But even in the Netherlands Alliander is under fire for providing electricity itself through its charging station networks of Allego, which Nuon is fighting before court. That’s why Alliander is thinking about selling Allego.
And that’s something Dutch oil giant Shell, already owning NewMotion and starting to equip its petrol stations with electric charging too, might be very interested in.
