Total ensures that the stations are powered by 100% renewable energy.
A new chapter in the tumultuous history of the Autolib ‘network. The former Bolloré service is now under the control of the oil tanker Total, which also took over the Parisian charging network Belib ‘. The group won a call for tenders from the Paris city hall at the end of 2020, and is now the effective manager of these networks. Total has announced that the Bélib ‘and Autolib’ stations are powered by 100% renewable energy, via its Total Direct Energie service.
2,300 terminals in the Paris region
The network of old Autolib ‘terminals will be “completely upgraded” to offer fast charging points everywhere in the Paris region: Total wants to offer in the long term more than 2,300 charging points, which will be grouped under the Bélib ‘brand. This development will then constitute an increase of more than 50% the number of terminals available in the capital.
To continue supplying these new terminals with renewable energy, Total has announced that it intends to build in the coming months a fleet of solar power plants in France, which will be responsible for supplying the network terminals.
