With potential installation at up to 30 centres across Vicinity’s national portfolio, the fast-charging, DC chargers will draw on renewable energy to deliver a sustainable and lightning-fast charging option for customers across the country, capable of charging up to 80% battery capacity in just 30-minutes.
Vicinity Chief Innovation & Information Officer, Justin Mills, said the program represented another proof point in Vicinity’s long-term strategy to extract additional value from its asset portfolio by leveraging new and emerging technology, while offering customers a more convenient and accessible way to charge their vehicles.
“Our national portfolio of centres across Australia offers a unique opportunity to provide accessible and convenient fast-charging facilities for our communities to enjoy,” said Mr Mills.
“Customers will experience the unrivalled convenience of being able to seamlessly integrate the charging of their vehicle as part of their everyday lifestyle, while they enjoy our market-leading retail, leisure and service offerings.”
ENGIE ANZ Director of Transport and Green Mobility, Greg Schumann, said ENGIE’s partnership with Vicinity was an important step in accelerating Australia’s transition to mass electric vehicle adoption.
