ENDESA, the largest electric utility company in Spain, is making plans to carry out a massive deployment of vehicle recharging posts throughout the country.
In a direct challenge to those offered by oil giants Repsol and Cepsa, Endesa will be rolling out 4,000 electric stations.
The company has established an ambitious and wide-ranging network of agreements with household names like Decathlon, Carrefour, McDonald’s to make installations in their car parks.
Endesa’s contracts include the four largest car park companies in Spain: Saba, controlled by La Caixa; Empark, owned by Macquarie; Indigo, under Ardian; and Parkia, owned by First State.
Hotel chains Ibis and Holiday Inn are also involved, along with the Quiron hospital.
Between January and August of this year, 8,157 electric vehicles and 3,574 plug-in hybrids were sold in Spain.
