Electricity distributor E.On and fuel distributor MOL announced that they will build 40 e-charging stations for electric cars in Romania by 2020. The two companies will use non-reimbursable EU funds through the NEXT-E program.
E.On will build 19 and MOL will build 21 charging stations that will accompany its existing petrol stations, covering three main transport routes in the country. In May, fuel retailer Rompetrol, which is a part of Kazakh KMG International, opened its first petrol filling station, which also has electric vehicle charging points, as a part of its 9 million euros investment plan for eight petrol stations by the end of the year. In early 2017, OMV Petrom opened its first fast-charging station for electric cars in Romania in cooperation with electricity distributor Electrica.
