In three years time Romania will have 40 new charging stations for electric vehicles in place thanks to the NEXT-E project, funded by the EU. The stations will be built by the energy supplier E.ON Romania and Hungarian group MOL.

The charging stations will be built at Mol’s gas stations on the three main motorways in Romania: Arad-Bucharest-Constanta motorway on pan-European corridor IV, Sebes-Targu Mures-Iasi motorway, and Suceava-Bucharest-Giurgiu motorway on pan-European corridor IX.

The project will start this year, the two companies said in a joint statement adding that E.On will build 19 stations, and Mol 21.

The NEXT-E project is funded through the Mechanism Connecting Europe Facility — CEF of the European Commission. Around EUR 19 million is allocated for this project which will last three years.

The project foresees building of 252 e-charging stations in Romania, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Slovakia and Croatia.

The project will be implemented by the international consortium which, apart of E.ON and Mol, consists of the Croatian power company HEP, PETROL, BMW Group and the Hungarian Nissan subsidiary.

Romania already has several e-charging stations, seven of which have been opened this year, Romanian media reported.
