Fastned Charging Day — June 14 at 15:00 CET

Fastned Charging Day is coming up this week. It is primarily focused on investors. To reach as large a public as possible, the format of an online show was chosen. The complete business of fast charging theoretically can be explained in this three-hour presentation.

Charging as a business is a new phenomenon. Last year, there were four IPOs of charging companies on Wall Street. They were hailed as the new Tesla or at least a new Exxon. Clearly, investors had no idea what they were doing. The stocks were volatile.

Now, Fastned, one of the oldest and most experienced charging companies, is going to explain it all. How to build a network. How to make it profitable. That the business grows with the number of fully electric cars on the road. I have been following Fastned for years, and I will be watching on Tuesday, perhaps even asking questions.

The program is promising:

Vision & strategy

  • Michiel Langezaal, CEO and founder

Best charging concept

  • Maria Garcia, Director Location Design
  • Robin Wouters, Director Product and Engineering

Capex efficiency

  • Georg Schmidt-Holzmann, Director Construction and Management

Operational excellence

  • Yannick Schuermans, Director Operations & Analytics

Location acquisition strategy

  • Pierre Courgeon, Country Manager France
  • Sara Pasquier, Head of New Markets

Business case financials

  • Victor van Dijk, CFO

Future guidance

  • Michiel Langezaal, CCE

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...

Grumpy old man. The best thing I did with my life was raising two kids. Only finished primary education, but when you don’t go to school, you have lots of time to read. I switched from accounting to software development and ended my career as system integrator and architect. My 2007 boss got two electric Lotus Elise cars to show policymakers the future direction of energy and transportation. And I have been looking to replace my diesel cars with electric vehicles ever since. At the end of 2019 I succeeded, I replaced my Twingo diesel for a Zoe fully electric. And putting my money where my mouth is, I have bought Tesla shares. Intend to keep them until I can trade them for a Tesla car. I added some Fastned, because driving without charging is no fun.
