GLOBUS Markthallen, in collaboration with EnBW, is significantly expanding its charging infrastructure, contributing to the advancement of the mobility transition in Germany.

GLOBUS’ customers now have access to 16 EnBW fast charging points at Limburg, with an additional 50 sites planned in the coming months.

“Fast charging at retail locations makes electromobility easy for everyone,” says Jürgen Stein, Chief Innovation & New Business Officer at EnBW, responsible for eMobility.

“While customers shop, their cars can conveniently charge enough range for the next few days. That’s why GLOBUS is a key partner in further expanding our already largest fast charging network in Germany and for the convenient charging of electric cars in everyday life. Together with GLOBUS, we are advancing a more sustainable mobility and contributing to CO2 reduction in transportation,” he adds.

“We see the improvement of charging infrastructure at our market halls not only as our contribution to the mobility transition and part of our sustainability commitment,” says Thomas Hewer, spokesperson for the management of GLOBUS Markthallen.

“Our customers, in particular, benefit from a safe, comfortable, and above all, affordable charging offer at any time,” he states.

Together with EnBW (and the second partner Tesla), GLOBUS is building charging parks at around 50 market hall locations by the end of the year.

“We are opening up the opportunity for many customers to drive electrically without having a charging option at home,” reports Nils Behrens, Head of Fueling & Washing, who oversees the project at GLOBUS.

With more than 800 High Power Charging (HPC) points, the nationwide stock of fast points will increase by over four per cent in the first phase.

Upon completion, GLOBUS will offer its customers up to 5,000 charging spaces.

At each location, there will typically be more than 12 charging points available at the start of the parks, with a capacity of up to 400 kilowatts (up to 300 kW in Limburg).

Payment can be made through all common methods, such as the EnBW mobility+ app, charging card, or automatically starting the charging process with AutoCharge, as well as many other charging cards.

EnBW currently operates more than 4,200 fast charging points nationwide at retail locations, in cities, and along long-distance routes.

There, electric cars can charge up to 100 kilometers (km) of range in just 5 minutes.

While such vehicles are not yet available, this aligns with EnBW’s approach of considering future charging needs today.

By 2030, the energy company aims to provide around 30,000 public charging points of the highest power class.

This is a significant part of the total required public charging infrastructure of 130,000 to 150,000 fast charging points by then. E

nBW invests approximately 200 million euros annually for this purpose.

At the same time, drivers can charge at more than 600,000 points in the so-called EnBW HyperNetwork in Europe using the EnBW mobility+ app and charging card.

This includes the charging points of hundreds of other operators.
