EDF plan to install 75,000 EV chargers across Europe

Lots of corporate money is looking to muscle in on the car charging market. Both BP and Shell have made significant investments in car charging networks and now @EDFenergy has set out plans to have 75,000 charging points across Europe, mainly in Italy, Belgium, France and the UK.

It’ll be interesting to see how much EDF charge for access to these chargers; being mainly a generator of nuclear energy, EDF’s electricity is some of the most expensive to generate and it if has to compete with suppliers using electricity from much cheaper wind and solar then drivers might decide that EDF charge points are best avoided.
