By switching to electric driving based on sustainable energy as soon as possible, we can avert climate change and make cities cleaner and quieter.
Fastned helps cities and municipalities with fast charging infrastructure. Our stations are accessible to all types of electric cars, run on 100% local renewable energy and work with open source protocols and standards.
Fastned stations are future-proofed; ready for more, ever-faster chargers as the EV market develops.
A fully-equipped Fastned station has the charge delivery capacity of 1,000 ordinary chargers. Our superfast charging stations are therefore highly space-efficient, reducing street clutter and the “loss” of car parking spaces.
At Fastned we connect our station to the powerful high-voltage electrical network. In doing so, we secure a quality supply for the high power chargers, and don’t place a further burden on highly constrained low-voltage distribution networks.
Charging with the sun and wind
Fastned stations are mostly active during daylight hours, with aggregate demand well in line with solar generation. Our infrastructure therefore makes optimal use of renewable energy generation.
Fastned stations are naturally ready for integration with battery storage. This means we are ready to provide localised grid balancing services as the world moves to further electrification of transport and heat, and integrates more renewable power sources.
Minimising impact on the urban realm
Fastned stations on city peripheries and busy interchanges have the potential to serve most local and visiting EV drivers’ needs, reducing the demand for on-street, slow charging infrastructure. Charging stations therefore serve to reduce street clutter, which has the potential to be hazardous.
Reduced permitting, works and maintenance
Why install 1,000 chargers on streets when you can install one station? By utilising a single connection to the high-voltage grid, our stations reduce the permitting exercise, the impact of installation works, and the ongoing maintenance demands of on-street infrastructure.
Each location is designed individually, with the suitable charging speed and layout of the station.

We are keen to share our knowledge and experience around superfast charging. We are in dialogue with governments and local authorities across the country, and much of Europe. The Fastned team can help with insights into policy solutions, and we can work together with you to develop opportunity locations to deliverable projects, all with the goal of facilitating more electric vehicles on the road.
Please do contact us to discuss policy and strategy for electromobility.
