The EnBW HyperNetwork grew to cover almost 400,000 charging points in 2022 – a milestone that was then quickly passed in 2023. Customers can now charge their vehicles at uniform prices in 17 European countries and the network continues to grow constantly.
Alongside its own charging points, EnBW also offers access to charging points from a large number of European operators. For example, Vattenfall was added to the network in 2022. The Vattenfall charging points can be located and used by e-vehicle drivers in the EnBW mobility+ app, just like all the charging points in the network. Customers can also find other new charging points at BAUHAUS and REWE stores, where EnBW has installed its own quick-charging stations and placed them into operation. Customers can charge their e-cars in the car park while they are visiting the store. They are part of the network operated by EnBW – which is the largest quick-charging network in Germany with more than 800 quick-charging stations across the country that are supplied 100% with green electricity. EnBW is also massively expanding this network and plans to operate 30,000 quick-charging points by 2030.
In view of the growing number of electric vehicles, offering access to the public quick-charging infrastructure in our own customer car park gives us a clear competitive advantage at our sites that will become increasingly important in the future.
The EnBW mobility+ app shows customers where they can find one of the now more than 400,000 charging points. The response to the app has been impressive: The EnBW mobility+ service regularly comes out on top in independent tests. EnBW was once again rated as the largest and best e-mobility provider in combination with its multi-award-winning app in 2022. It is considered the best charging app in Germany and stands out especially due to its user friendliness and high standard of personal data protection.
The expansion of smart infrastructure has also become a priority elsewhere: The EnBW subsidiary Netze BW has begun to expand the fiber-optic network in 18 local authorities around the city of Rastatt. The 200 km long fiber-optic network will enable transmission rates of 1,000 Mbit/s and this new connection will especially benefit those regions that were previously badly undersupplied.
