Allego and REWE Nord to add 600 fast chargers in Germany

Pan-European EV charging network Allego and REWE Nord are to build fast EV charging points at 600 of the supermarket chain's locations across northern Germany, the companies have announced. Allego and REWE Nord first partnered in 2018 to build 14 fast chargers across the REWE Nord network in northern Germany. Responding to the growing demand for combining shopping with charging, that partnership will now expand. 

By the end of 2022, REWE Nord wants to have 100 new fast-charging locations operational. In all, the company wants to offer fast charging at 600 of its retail locations. The service will be offered via the Hypercharger (150 kW), which can charge most vehicles in 20 to 40 minutes. All energy used by the fast chargers will be delivered by renewable sources.
