The Kalibrate fuel round up: November 2023
Kalibrate works with a diverse range of fuel organizations, so we always have our ear to the ground to see how the environment is evolving. This helps us understand the challenges and opportunities facing the brands we support, but it also helps us keep across the news, innovations, transformations, trials, and tribulations, within the fuel space.
EG Group acquires Tesla chargers as it boosts rollout of its evpoint network
In a ‘first of its kind’ deal, EG Group will acquire Tesla’s ultra fast charging units to boost its third party charge point operation in Europe.
Branded ‘evpoint’, the chargers will use Tesla hardware but on an open network model, meaning all drivers can utilize the chargers regardless of their vehicle brand.
We’re now seeing significant movements towards standardized charging hardware on both side of the Atlantic. For drivers weighing up an EV as their next purchase, increased accessibility should alleviate concerns around range and charger compatibility.
Stockholm to ban petrol and diesel cars in its city centre by 2025
Stockholm will become the first major city to ban all petrol and diesel cars from its center after Sweden’s Green Party, part of the city council, said it hoped the move would push more people towards EVs.
Only private electric cars will be allowed in the central zone, but some bigger vans with plug-in hybrid engines will also be permitted. Emergency vehicles will also be exempted.
With a growing number of cities making noises about ICE bans, fuel retailers need to take steps today to start collating the necessary data points around growth in adoption and the impact on fuel volumes so they can start planning appropriate steps across their portfolios.
UK: Fuel retailers will be ‘held to account’ on prices as CMA gets new powers
The Competition and Markets Authority will be given new powers to enforce transparency on fuel prices as part of the UK government’s plan to compel fuel retailers to share daily price data.
The CMA believes publishing prices will increase competition and give consumers greater confidence that they are getting the best deal.
So far, we’re yet to see the process for gathering prices. You can read our thoughts on the initiative from earlier this year.
