German utility E.ON and Danish e-mobility provider CLEVER have agreed to jointly build a network of ultra-fast e-car charging stations along major European motorways, according to an E.ON press release. “The joint ambition of the partners is to now establish several hundred ultra-fast charging locations across Europe. The sites will be placed every 120 - 180 kilometres along motorways. E.ON and CLEVER invite more partners with the same ambitions to join this effort.” Construction of this “game-changer for the growth of EV demand” will begin this year, and the partners are already in dialogue with a number of other parties, according to the release.
