Stations-e strengthens its presence
in Pas de Calais
This is an important step for the Community of Communes of 7 Valleys which seeks to develop an alternative and ecological mobility.
Founded in 2018 by Alain Rolland, Stations-e is positioned as a sustainable mobility operator. It offers multi-service and connected charging stations in public and private spaces. These stations promote the adoption of electric transport by making it more accessible, more reliable and more attractive. Stations-e has installed a total of 10 stations in 5 municipalities, and they have been operational since June 1st. The company was able to implement a local fast charging solution in just a few weeks without costing the community a single euro.
Stations-e: new-generation, connected, multi-service recharging stations
The Stations-e concept has been imagined as a service platform, a piece of street furniture capable of adapting to demand, hosting and supervising numerous services. The idea is simple: on the same piece of street furniture, it offers charging stations for electric vehicles, energy storage, connectivity infrastructures giving access to high-speed Internet and complementary services such as car-sharing stations, surveillance cameras, lockers…
Civil engineering and management without calling on the budget of local authorities
The Stations-e solution is based on the principle of a virtuous model: a network of stations financed by industrial revenues and services that create economic activity and local employment (energy, telecoms, deliveries, local services, car-sharing, media/cloud…). Stations-e relies on partnerships involving national and local companies, both for implementation and operation, and for services. Thanks to its business model, Stations-e invests its own funds in the supply, installation, operation and maintenance of the infrastructure. “We have created a model that responds to today’s global challenges. Our service platform has been designed to create growth areas for industrial companies, but also for startups and SMEs, in the digital sector as well as in local services”, explains Alain Rolland, its founder.
10 Stations-e operational in the 7 Valleys since June 1st!
This is an important step for the Community of Communes of the 7 Valleys which seeks to develop an alternative and ecological mobility. Ten Stations-e are accessible since June 1st and allow users to recharge their electric vehicles. Elected officials were attracted by the Stations-e concept, which also offers a range of services: data hosting, high-speed communications provider, car-sharing point, video protection cameras, smart-city sensors, connected lockers, etc. These ten Stations-e are spread over five municipalities: three in Hesdin, two in Auchy-Les-Hesdin, two in Beaurainville, two others in Marconne and one station in Huby-Saint-Lieu. This project will allow Stations-e to deploy the full potential of its business model with a complete network of the territory and a continuity of services between Arras and the tourist sites located on the coast, including Merlimont, which was recently opened.
In just a few weeks, the company was able to implement a fast recharging solution without costing the community a single euro. These stations, with a power of 24 KwkW, allow any type of electric vehicle to recover up to 150 km of autonomy in 1 hour for less than 8€, less than half the price of gasoline.
An ambitious project for the Hauts de France region
To meet the needs of the region in the coming years, Stations-e aims to invest in a network of 1,000 stations by 2025, with a program of 100 stations starting this year. Local authorities are invited to express their interest as soon as possible. The promise is that private investment will be independent of the budgets and expenses of local authorities or private companies. The Stations-e economic model will also generate employment, with one station installed being equivalent to one permanent job, thanks to several growth pillars including electric transport, information and telecommunication technologies and local services.
At the national level, Stations-e aims to deploy 550 sites this year (and more than 1000 negotiated sites). This is the first significant acceleration of its investments, with the stated objective of creating a network of 10,000 sites by 2027.
Founded in 2018 by Alain Rolland and executives coming from large groups and Startups, Stations-e positions itself as a sustainable mobility operator. It deploys multi-service, connected charging stations in the heart of cities and businesses, taking care of the supply, deployment, operation and maintenance of the stations. The company aims to help improve the environmental impact of mobility and to create an environment conducive to innovation by hosting services that require a coherent and open infrastructure. It intends to promote the adoption of electric transportation by making it more accessible, reliable and attractive.
