TotalEnergies (Paris: TTE) (LSE: TTE) (NYSE: TTE) and China Three Gorges Corporation (CTG, through its two subsidiaries CTG Capital and CTG Electric Energy) have signed an agreement to establish a joint venture in the field of electromobility in China . This co-owned company will develop high-capacity electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and services in Hubei Province by installing and operating more than 11,000 high-capacity charging points by 2025.
This joint venture will build on TotalEnergies' global expertise in electromobility and CTG's strong expertise in the generation and supply of green energy. The two companies intend to develop jointly operated high power charging hubs and standalone stations that are open to the public and are equipped with 60 kW to 120 kW power charge points and have an average hosting capacity of 20 to 50 vehicles each. The partners will also build dedicated charging stations on B2B customers' premises to meet their needs. Ultimately, in line with the respective ambitions of the partners for CO2 neutrality, the electricity for this new network will mainly be obtained from renewable sources.
The joint venture's growth prospects are supported by China's ambitions to be carbon neutral by 2060. Against the background of a rapidly growing energy demand for mobility, it is expected that the penetration rate of electric vehicles will increase dramatically in the coming years, resulting in a rapid expansion of the existing fast charging network.
“We share common and important visions with China Three Gorges, the ambition to achieve carbon neutrality, the undeniable willingness to promote renewable energies and the enthusiasm for the development of electric mobility,” said Alexis Vovk, President Marketing & Services at TotalEnergies. “Hubei Province is a natural ground to start this cooperation with, as our two companies are based there and contribute to the development of sustainable mobility in China and accompany the ongoing growth of electric vehicles in the country. This partnership with CTG opens new doors to TotalEnergies for a long-term and expanded collaboration with a leading Chinese electrical energy company. “
“We are very proud to work with the world's leading energy company TotalEnergies, as we share the common mission to provide the world with clean energies,” said Dr. Jin Heping, CTG Group's Chief Information Officer, responsible for technology and innovation. “Charging vehicles with new energy is an important part of building new infrastructures. It has a broad development perspective with a strong need for technological iteration of solar energy storage and charging microgrids: By cooperating with TotalEnergies, we want to expand our upstream expertise in clean power generation and power supply to the downstream retail and mobility services business and at the same time create a model for technological innovation in the We look forward to learning from each other and building a long-term relationship with TotalEnergies in other energy sectors in China and around the world. “
