Infinity, a leading renewables energy solutions provider, announced its intention to expand its electric vehicle (EV) charging station network across Egypt, in line with the government’s intention to build a robust ecosystem for EVs in the country. The company, which already has an existing network of over 40 charging stations with more than 150 charging points, stated it was aiming to launch over 300 charging stations by 2023 and planned to invest around 300 million EGP to reach this milestone.
All stations are built in confirmation to EU standards and cater to Type 2 charger cables. Alternatively, EV owners can also use adapter cables to charge their cars at the stations. The stations are equipped with double-socket 22KW-AC-chargers as well as fast-charging DC chargers, which are available in major stations, providing an output of 50 KW.
Speaking of the announcement, Mr. Shams Abdel Ghaffar, Managing Director, Infinity EV Division, said, “We are committed in our efforts towards building a robust ecosystem for electric vehicles in Egypt, in line with the government’s vision of transforming consumer transportation in the country. We have already established the largest EV charging network in the country and expect to continue growing this network over the next few years. We hope that through our efforts we can lay the groundwork in Egypt for a smoother transition to EVs and build confidence in consumers around EVs as a reliable mode of transportation, going forward.”
