The company will highlight its roadmap to develop its commitment to the electrification of mobility in order to contribute to the decarbonization of the planet.

The EDP Group will reaffirm at Global Mobility Call its goal of increasing the infrastructure of public charging points for electric mobility in the Iberian Peninsula, in line with its plan to reach 7,000 by 2026.

The energy company is participating as an Itinerary Partner of Global Mobility Call, which from October 24 to 26 organized by IFEMA MADRID and Smobhub will bring together the main leaders and companies working for the development of sustainable mobility, and where it will highlight the commitments of its roadmap, in which electrification is key to contribute to the decarbonization of the planet.

EDP's electric mobility in the Iberian Peninsula

The company has a complete and adapted offer of products and services for companies and businesses, including more than 4,600 public charging points in operation or in the process of implementation on the Iberian Peninsula. By 2026, the goal is to reach 7,000 public charging points.

To achieve this development, EDP has agreements in Spain with Decathlon, Ahorramas, Kia, Petroprix, and the national parking group APK2, among others. Specifically, with Petroprix it is promoting the largest ultrafast recharging infrastructure with batteries for electric vehicles in Spain. This alliance will begin with the installation of chargers at 44 service stations, with the option of expanding to all 135 in the Spanish fuel operator's network and to the 35 new openings planned for this year. In addition, in Portugal the company has agreements with McDonald's and is also accelerating the presence of electric mobility on highways thanks to a partnership with Brisa, BP and Repsol.

The company, as a sign of its commitment to efficient mobility, is actively working to maintain a competitive offer, not only in terms of price, but also by creating a system of pre-charging vouchers that allows the user, in the event of not having a recharging point linked, to find clear savings with respect to traditional refueling.

"The commitment made in the Paris Agreement calls for a structural change both in our way of life and in the way we produce and consume energy. The electrification of mobility and its integration into an increasingly efficient energy ecosystem are essential aspects on this path. By promoting the debate on how to achieve an economy in which energy, innovation and sustainability converge in favor of the planet, events such as the Global Mobility Call are an important catalyst for the energy transition", said EDP Group Executive Director, Vera Pinto Pereira, who will also participate in a keynote at the Main Auditorium on the 24th at 5 pm.
