TotalEnergies and Wenea Branded Network have reached an agreement to establish a dominant player in electric mobility in Spain by constructing a network of high-power charging hubs.
As a first step, TotalEnergies has acquired Nordian CPO, a subsidiary of Wenea group, which owns 200 charging sites from Wenea’s branded network.
These 200 fast and ultra-fast charging sites — supplied entirely with renewable electricity — are located along major highways and in urban and peri-urban areas in all 17 regions of Spain.
Moreover, TotalEnergies and Wenea are pursuing their discussion to establish a strategic partnership pooling their expertise and skills in infrastructure, power distribution and mobility to build and invest together in high-power charging hubs.
Spain has Europe’s fifth-largest automobile fleet, and the proportion of electric vehicles is expanding rapidly.
TotalEnergies New Mobilities and Marketing Senior VP Mathieu Soulas said: “For TotalEnergies, this is a great opportunity to extend our network in Europe and stake out a position as a benchmark high-power charging player in Spain.
Soulas referred to this as a “leadership race to serve millions of customers country by country”.
Wenea President Manuel Zorrilla said: “This new agreement between Wenea and TotalEnergies will represent a winning proposition. We are proud to partner with TotalEnergies to deploy the leading high-power charge point network. Our innovation, digital strategy, customer focus and leadership in charging services, make Wenea a unique player in the EV market.”
The partnership aligns with TotalEnergies’ ambition to deploy and operate more than 1,000 high-power charging sites for electric vehicles in Europe by 2028.
After winning one of the three public roadside charging concessions in Madrid in May 2023, TotalEnergies is expanding rapidly in electric mobility in Spain.
It also comes a few weeks after a tender win in Germany to install more than 1,100 high-power charge points.
Wenea is a Spanish independent player in electric vehicle charging services, as the company is currently operating more than 1,200 charge points.
During 2023, Wenea outperformed its network deployment targets with more than 100 high-power charging hubs in priority highways, urban and peri-urban areas — including being awarded the largest public tender to date in Spain (Sevilla) and more than five of the main tenders in the UK.
Wenea also leads EV private charging solutions such as large-scale parking operators, retailers, hotel chains, B2B charging services and EV platform services over a large portfolio of partners within the Spanish fleet ecosystem.
Wenea strengthens its financial capacity and ensures the fulfilment of its strategic plan by 2026, to deploy more than 5,000 charging points in Spain and the United Kingdom already in their portfolio, 2,000 of them located in high power charging hubs, comprising one of the biggest high power charging portfolios in Europe.
