Fastned increases prices to 0.69 euros per kWh-prices

Fastned was first hedged against the increase in electricity prices on the wholesale market by selling credits for renewable energies (HBES). But this is apparently no longer sufficient to work profitably. For this reason, Fastned has decided to raise the selling price per kilowatt hour. In the future, E motorists pay at Fastned charging stations, from the 11.11.2021, 0.69 euros per kWh. .

Such a development was already foreseeable when the quarter numbers is announced 03/2021 and was communicated accordingly. Whether it is a permanent increase or transition to a more dynamic price strategy to consider price development on the European electricity wholesale market is still open. What can be said, however, is that the price of electricity was kept stable for the five years before.

“As you have probably gathered from the news, energy prices have risen to unprecedented levels across Europe in recent months. So far we have been able to absorb these price increases. However, we have now had to decide to increase our prices in certain countries from May 11th. to increase Nov. We don’t like doing this. We are even very proud that we have been able to keep our prices constant for five years and at the same time have expanded our network and installed faster charging stations in many places, which make your charging stop more and more convenient. But so that we can continue to invest in this way, it is important that we react to these new realities.- Fastned

At least the Dutch say in passing that they will “review this price structure if the situation changes.But one thing is actually clear, once prices have been raised, they will never return to their origins. This is very difficult to imagine. In a direct comparison to the European fast-charging station operator Ionity, with 79 cents per kWh, you still get a lower price if you charge at Fastned.

From the beginning of December, the Dutch company will also raise the prices for so-called Gold Members from 0.35 to 0.45 euros/kWh. According to Emobly, the monthly basic fee for the subscription remains unchanged at 11.99 euros.The minimum contract term at Fastend is only one month. In May, the Fastned CEO answered our questions and gave the following information about his vision for the future:

“When the right locations are available, we will build charging stations along the highway with dozens of fast charging points, where you can charge up to 300 kilometers of range in just 15 to 20 minutes. We want EV drivers to have the same experience as combustion engine drivers. That means: comfortable drive-through stations without a lot of maneuvering, with a roof to protect against rain, a shop with a contemporary range and sanitary facilities.”

  1. Fastned is likely to be the first provider, but unfortunately not the last. None of the providers can defend themselves against the electricity trading prices in the long term. Thank you, dear politicians, for delaying the expansion of renewable energies. Now the party that has wreaked havoc for the last 16 years has been voted out and we have the salad just in time for the change of power. Great.

  2. it happened the way it had to. The CO2 price also increases with conventional electricity production, and the price increases for oil, gas and coal also have an impact. Unfortunately, 30ct/kWh household electricity will soon be over. Rescue through the expansion of renewables is also not in sight due to the expensive storage. Energy is simply becoming more expensive across the board. Those who earn little will get more support and keep their consumption low. Anyone who earns well will have to change their consumption or savings behavior. If massive wage increases don’t balance everything out, consumption will fall and that will reduce CO2 emissions. Goal achieved, climate saved, what everyone wants. There have to be sacrifices.

  3. At some point there will also be a tax on charging vehicle batteries. Anyone who believes that the state will let the escaped petroleum tax escape through more and more e-cars also believes in Santa Claus.
    Evil awakening is yet to come!!

  4. It is foreseeable that the extreme prices for energy will fall again. but in the medium and long term the prices will of course go up and that is sorely needed. High energy prices force people to use energy carefully. That’s the only good thing about it.

  5. It is not the production costs, but primarily taxes and levies that make electricity so expensive here! The state would have every opportunity to intervene to regulate this. Instead, the old government, above all Economics Minister Altmeier, massively impeded and delayed the expansion of renewables and imposed the highest possible bureaucratic hurdles. In addition, there is the outrageous number that he allowed companies and corporations to be illegally exempted from paying the EEG surcharge en masse – with the result that we now have the highest energy prices in almost the world and (which was a thoroughly desirable side effect likely to be) the renewables, which the common people blamed for the price explosion, were discredited. It’s a godsend that this government was voted out!

  6. Electricity tours beyond the 0.49 Euro / kWh will get the e-mobility. At 20 kWh consumption per 100 km, the 10 Euro border per 100 km is exceeded (20 kWh is still optimistic). A more economical diesel drives with 5 liters per 100 km and so far the diesel prices are still well below 2 euros per liter.
    Only more E cars will come across the street when this price spiral stops for the charging current. Basic charges for favorable shop are unacceptable.
    The policy has to come up with something here, otherwise the combies and the Phev will win the upper hand.
