GOFAST and Energie 360°
GOFAST and Energie 360° are working hand in hand with investments into Infrastructure in order to boost the adoption of Electric Mobility. GOFAST’s mission and focus is unchanged: we are still working, together with our partners, to build a national super fast charging network, open to all. We call it “supercharging for everyone”.
GOFAST and the «European Open Fast Charge Alliance»
At the beginning of February, we announced the creation of the “Open Fast Charge Alliance” together with leading fast charge operators in Europe: Gröhn Kontakt (NO), Fastned (NL), Sodetrel (FR) and Smatrics (AT). Goal of this cooperation is to make long distance travel in Europe as easy as possible. Important is all members’ commitment to charging speed and quality. Quality in terms of locations, availability and the simplicity of payment, including the effort to reduce roaming fees.
We are making progress with our goal to establish a comprehensive super fast charging network. Together with local Partners – companies, business owners and the public sector – we are working to open until the end of the year more GOFAST locations with the usual GOFAST quality and charging speed. Already in the next few weeks, we will be officially opening stations in the area of Winterthur, Aarau and Lugano. And over the next months, more stations will follow in all parts of Switzerland. This should lead to a first network of more than 10 locations by the end of the year, making long distance travel easier for EV drivers, from Switzerland or abroad.
But we also want to substantially grow the network over the years. Do you own a business (coffee shop, Restaurant, Shop etc) near a highway or major road? We take care of everything: we plan, build, invest and operate the charging locations long term. Additionally, you can participate financially in the success of the location. Get in touch with us! Become a GOFAST location partner and offer additional services to your existing clients and win new clients!
GOFAST and BMW i
Since the beginning of this year, we are working together with BMW i. Thanks to this cooperation, all GOFAST fast charging locations are already integrated into the BMW navigation system and can be accessed easily with the ChargeNow card.
Numbers of the month
It’s important to all of us that our infrastructure is open and available to everyone. The Swiss government (FEDRO) calls this non-discriminatory. Given that there are multiple fast charging standards in Europe, all our Chargers have all of them and can be used by multiple cars at full speed. Current numbers from our existing stations show the following usage: 36% CHAdeMO, 36% AC, 28% CCS.
GOFAST is looking for enthusiasts to join the team
Personally, I started with GOFAST last year in order to build “the best super fast charging network”. It is with great pleasure that the board of directors has nominated me to be the CEO in order to achieve the ambitious goals. But for that, I need help. We have just opened up two jobsand we are looking for people with different backgrounds, experiences and skills. But one thing applicant should have: a keen interest in Electric Mobility. Have a look at the job listings and join us!
