Allego is planinng to build a total of more than 2,000 fast-charging points for electric cars ( outputs 75 and 300 kW) at more than 200 locations in France by 2023. The Charging Stations are for the French retailer Carrefour. In addition to building the network, Allego will also be responsible for its operation and maintenance over a period of twelve years.
There will also be an unspecified number of 22 kW charging points as well as a free service for charging “light electric vehicles such as e-bikes, kick-e-scooters and electric scooters”.
The 22 kW chargers are also to be free for customers with a Carrefour customer card for the first hour.
The total investment is stated at 138 million euros. About 55 million euros will be financed by a “green loan” from seven banks. For the financing, Allego has founded the special financial vehicle “AssetCo” together with the parent company Meridiam. French investor Meridiam had acquired Allego in 2018.
