IONITY plans to set up a Europe-wide network of 400 fast-charging stations on major traffic routes by 2020, 100 of which will be in Germany. In doing so, the joint venture of BMW, Daimler, Ford and Volkswagen with Audi and Porsche is relying on green electricity with the highest environmental standards. The green electricity is supplied by energy provider Polarstern and follows the demanding criteria of the Green Electricity Label. Polarstern's 'Really Green Electricity' has won several awards, including being a five-time test winner in the magazine Öko-Test.
The Green Electricity Label, founded among others by the large environmental associations NABU and BUND, is considered the most demanding green electricity standard in Germany. This is also confirmed by a comparison carried out by the Lower Saxony Consumer Center: The Green Electricity Label was the only one to be awarded the top rating of 'highly recommendable'.
When choosing an energy partner, the quality (production) of the green electricity was decisive for IONITY. In addition, the Green Electricity Label supports the sustainable energy supply of tomorrow. For every kilowatt hour of electricity consumed, a fixed subsidy amount is invested in good energy transition projects, such as wind and solar plants or tenant electricity or e-mobility.
