Duizenden nieuwe openbare oplaadpunten – Shell ubitricity breidt de EV-oplaadinfrastructuur in Noord-Holland, Flevoland en Utrecht verder uit

mrt 12, 2024 | Persbericht

ubitricity en twee andere laadpuntexploitanten installeren de kommende vier jaar tot 35.000 laadpunten in de drie provincies; de tweede samenwerking tussen MRA-Elektrisch en ubitricity

 

Amsterdam, 12 maart 2024: ubitricity, leverancier en exploitant van publieke laadoplossingen en onderdeel van de Shell Groep, heeft een tender voor nieuwe publieke laadstations in Nederland gewonnen. MRA-Elektrisch, een samenwerkingsverband van overheden, heeft drie laadpuntbeheerders (CPO’s), waaronder ubitricity, aangewezen voor het uitrollen en de exploitatie van 35.000 laadpunten in Flevoland, Noord-Holland en Utrecht. Omdat ubitricity van de drie CPO’s in de aanbesteding de meeste punten heeft gekregen, heeft ubitricity de komende zes maanden recht op het grootste deel van de te realiseren laadpalen. De verhouding in de realisatie van laadpalen van elk van de CPO’s wordt op basis van prestaties periodiek herzien.

ubitricity installeert AC laadpalen met twee laadpunten per laadpaal. Alle laadpalen krijgen de merknaam Shell Recharge, het gevestigde merk van Shell voor het opladen van elektrische voertuigen thuis, op het werk en onderweg. Het uitrollen begint in de komende maanden en duurt tot maximaal 2028. Na de installatie zal ubitricity de laadpunten maximaal tien jaar lang exploiteren.

 

Zoals bij alle oplaadstations van ubitricity, vormen eenvoud en gemak bij het opladen de topprioriteit. Bestuurders van elektrische voertuigen kunnen dankzij de aansluiting van ubitricity op de roamingplatforms e-clearing en Hubject gebruikmaken van hun gewone laadpassen en apps voor e-mobiliteit. Daarnaast is het mogelijk om via ubitricity’s systeem Pay-As-You-Go zonder registratie een laadsessie te starten. ubitricity rolt ook innovatieve slimme laadfuncties uit, waarmee bestuurders hun elektrische voertuigen naar eigen behoefte en onder betere voorwaarden kunnen opladen. Met deze technologie kan ook de belasting van het lokale elektriciteitsnet worden geregeld.

Het nieuwe project markeert de tweede samenwerking tussen MRA-Elektrisch en ubitricity in minder dan een jaar tijd. Het eerste gezamenlijke project startte in april 2023, toen ubitricity een tender kreeg toegewezen voor de exploitatie van bijna 1.500 laadpunten in dezelfde drie regio’s. Die laadpunten werden vanaf juli 2023 stapsgewijs overgenomen van de vorige beheerder.

 

Daniel Kunkel, CEO van Shell ubitricity, is enthousiast over de snelle groei van het Nederlandse laadnetwerk van het bedrijf:

“Ons team is er trots op om MRA-Elektrisch en de Nederlandse provincies te kunnen blijven ondersteunen bij het verder uitbreiden van uitstekende lokale laadinfrastructuur. Dit project onderstreept ook het succes van onze aanpak om steden en gemeenten het juiste laadpunt op de juiste plaats en op het juiste moment te bieden.”

All forward-looking statements contained in this press release are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained or referred to in this section. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Additional risk factors that may affect future results are contained in Shell plc’s Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2022 (available at www.shell.com/investors/news-and-filings/sec-filings.html and www.sec.gov). These risk factors also expressly qualify all forward-looking statements contained in this press release and should be considered by the reader.  Each forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date of this press release, 12.03.2024. Neither Shell plc nor any of its subsidiaries undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or other information.

Shell’s net carbon intensity
Also, in this press release we may refer to Shell’s “Net Carbon Intensity”, which includes Shell’s carbon emissions from the production of our energy products, our suppliers’ carbon emissions in supplying energy for that production and our customers’ carbon emissions associated with their use of the energy products we sell. Shell only controls its own emissions. The use of the term Shell’s “Net Carbon Intensity” is for convenience only and not intended to suggest these emissions are those of Shell plc or its subsidiaries.

Shell’s net-Zero Emissions Target
Shell’s operating plan, outlook and budgets are forecasted for a ten-year period and are updated every year.  They reflect the current economic environment and what we can reasonably expect to see over the next ten years. Accordingly, they reflect our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Net Carbon Intensity (NCI) targets over the next ten years.  However, Shell’s operating plans cannot reflect our 2050 net-zero emissions target and 2035 NCI target, as these targets are currently outside our planning period. In the future, as society moves towards net-zero emissions, we expect Shell’s operating plans to reflect this movement. However, if society is not net zero in 2050, as of today, there would be significant risk that Shell may not meet this target.

Shell expects to publish its 2024 Energy Transition Strategy on March 14, 2024, which will include an update on Shell’s energy transition strategy and set out Shell’s climate targets and ambitions for the future.

Forward Looking Non-GAAP measures
This press release may contain certain forward-looking non-GAAP measures such as cash capital expenditure and divestments. We are unable to provide a reconciliation of these forward-looking Non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures because certain information needed to reconcile those Non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is dependent on future events some of which are outside the control of Shell, such as oil and gas prices, interest rates and exchange rates. Moreover, estimating such GAAP measures with the required precision necessary to provide a meaningful reconciliation is extremely difficult and could not be accomplished without unreasonable effort. Non-GAAP measures in respect of future periods which cannot be reconciled to the most comparable GAAP financial measure are calculated in a manner which is consistent with the accounting policies applied in Shell plc’s consolidated financial statements.
