Exponential growth of Fastned continues

Dutch company that is rolling out a European fast-charging network publishes half year results

Amsterdam July 28, 2016.

Highlights of the first half year:

  1. 368% volume growth compared to the first half of 2015
  2. 256% revenue growth compared to the first half of 2015 (difference between volume and revenues growth is mostly due to the introduction of free charging)
  3. 7% month-to-month growth of the number of customers during the last 6 months
  4. Successful issue of EUR 3.07 million worth of certificates of shares via the Nxchange stock exchange
  5. Deal with Nissan extended from 2 years to 4 years of free charging at Fastned
  6. All 50 stations are equipped with Tesla adapters
  7. Initiated a cooperation with the Dutch Railroad company NS for urban locations in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague
  8. Connected the charge cards of the The New Motion, EV-Box and ANWB to the Fastned app
  9. Continued uptime of the stations at 99.99%

Michiel Langezaal, CEO Fastned: “We look back at a half year in which we continued exponential growth of our revenues, kWh (volume) delivered, and the number of registered customers. In the first half of 2016 revenues grew at an average rate of 10% per month, volume grew at an average rate of 11% per month, and the number of registered customers grew at an average rate of 7% per month. Because no new stations were added during this half year, growth was entirely driven by more customers, who charge more often and longer at the existing stations. This autonomous growth proves our relevance to EV drivers based on network coverage (50 stations operational), extremely reliable service (99.99% uptime per station) and transparent, attractive pricing. We also connected the charge cards of providers such as The New Motion and EV-Box to the Fastned app. Finally, we have effectively doubled our market by installing Tesla adapters at all our stations. Where Tesla's could previously charge at 11kW to 22kW, they can now charge 50kW at Fastned. Because of this, we see the number of Teslas at our stations increase significantly."

Die Umsetzung eines solchen europäischen Schnellladenetzwerkes ist eine Reaktion auf die schnell wachsende Zahl von reinen Elektroautos. Automobilhersteller wie investieren Milliarden von Euro in die Entwicklung und Produktionskapazität von reinen Elektrofahrzeugen. Mit der steigenden Zahl von Elektroautos steigt auch die Nachfrage nach qualitativer Ladeinfrastruktur. Fastned reagiert auf diese Nachfrage mit dem Bau der „Tankstelle der Zukunft“. www.fastned.nl/de
