Total has won the City of Paris’ concession tender for the modernization and extension of its public electric vehicles (EV) charge points network, installed throughout the French capital city. The Council of Paris awarded to Total the management of its on-street public network for the 10 coming years.

This public service concession covers the supply, installation and technical and commercial operation of this charge points network. The new network, which combines the Belib’ network -from which it derives its name- and the former Autolib’ network, will ultimately encompass 2,300 EV charge points, an increase of 56% compared to the number currently in service.

Total will modernize the current equipment with the installation of fast-charging hubs, located at selected underground parking lots. The company has also included in its proposal the development of solar farms in France that will be dedicated to covering the entire electricity needs of this network, providing users with a 100% renewable electricity charge for their vehicles.

“This partnership with the City of Paris enables us to accelerate our transformation toward a broad energy company (…) Following Amsterdam, Brussels and London, another major European city is henceforth building on Total’s expertise to foster the transition of its citizens’ mobility,” said President, Marketing & Services at Total, Alexis Vovk.
