    Fast charging in focus: new tariff structure and prices in the EnBW HyperNetz


    November 29, 2022 - Contify Energy News

     

      EnBW is not only the operator of the largest fast charging networks in Germany and Austria. With their EnBW mobility+ tariffs, drivers can also charge in the EnBW HyperNetz at more than 300,000 charging points in Europe at uniform prices everywhere. EnBW is now making this offer, which is unique in its form, even clearer for its customers: the three new EnBW mobility+ charging tariffs S, M and L will apply from 17 January 2023. Uniform kilowatt-hour prices for normal and quick charging will apply in all three tariffs. They also offer a price advantage at EnBW's own charging points. Overall, the kilowatt hour prices will increase by an average of 27 percent due to the persistently high procurement costs in the electricity market.

      Key Highlights:

      * EnBW focuses on expanding the nationwide, public fast-charging infrastructure, for which it invests well over 100 million euros per year.

      * By 2030, it will provide around 30,000 fast charging points, which accounts for a relevant proportion of the 130,000 to 150,000 fast charging points that will be required by then.

      * This number covers the entire charging requirement in public spaces for the 15 million electric cars planned on Germany's roads by then.

      Original Press Release:

      Karlsruhe, Nov. 28 -- EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG issued the following news release:

      - Three new charging tariffs for every need / One price for normal and fast charging and price advantage at EnBW's own charging points / Persistently high electricity procurement costs lead to higher charging electricity prices overall

      EnBW is not only the operator of the largest fast charging networks in Germany and Austria. With their EnBW mobility+ tariffs, drivers can also charge in the EnBW HyperNetz at more than 300,000 charging points in Europe at uniform prices everywhere. EnBW is now making this offer, which is unique in its form, even clearer for its customers: the three new EnBW mobility+ charging tariffs S, M and L will apply from 17 January 2023. Uniform kilowatt-hour prices for normal and quick charging will apply in all three tariffs. They also offer a price advantage at EnBW's own charging points. Overall, the kilowatt hour prices will increase by an average of 27 percent due to the persistently high procurement costs in the electricity market. With fast loading, the changes are smaller (see overview below).

      Timo Sillober, Chief Sales & Operations Officer at EnBW, says: “We are making charging even easier for all drivers. There is only one kilowatt-hour price at EnBW's own charging points and one at third-party charging points - regardless of whether for normal or fast charging, whether at home or abroad, whether in the morning or in the evening, whether on weekdays or on public holidays. No other provider offers more simplicity, cost transparency and planning security.”

      The new EnBW mobility+ charging tariffs S and M replace the previous standard and frequent charging tariff. Customers are automatically transferred to the new tariff and informed individually. A new addition is the EnBW mobility+ charging tariff L. This takes into account that drivers are increasingly driving long distances electrically and charging publicly accordingly. The tariffs in detail [1] :

      * EnBW mobility+ charging tariff S for charging less than three times a month: 61 ct/kWh at EnBW charging points and 65 ct/kWh with other operators; without basic fee

      * EnBW mobility+ charging tariff M charge from three times a month: 49 ct/kWh at EnBW charging points and 57 ct/kWh at other operators; Basic fee 5.99 euros/month

      * EnBW mobility+ charging tariff L charge from six times a month: 39 ct/kWh at EnBW charging points and 50 ct/kWh with other operators; Basic fee 17.99 euros/month

      The new prices mean an overall increase compared to the currently valid prices. EnBW is one of the last electromobility providers to pass on the increased energy costs to their customers. Because the procurement costs for electricity have increased massively in recent months. Despite the downward trend, they are about twice as high as in the previous year. Nevertheless, EnBW was able to keep its charging electricity prices stable for a long time, even in the current energy crisis. In the roughly four years before the introduction of the new charging tariffs, it only adjusted the prices for public charging once [2] . With the new prices, the EnBW mobility+ charging offer [3] fast charging remains below the market average. Overall, the new prices are in the middle of the market, and above that for normal charging.

      As usual, all tariffs are valid throughout the Europe-wide EnBW HyperNetz at no extra charge and can be changed or canceled on a monthly basis. Depending on the vehicle, EnBW mobility+ customers can use the AutoCharge function free of charge in all tariffs . In addition to the EnBW mobility+ charging tariffs S, M and L, EnBW also continues to offer the advantageous tariff for its household electricity and gas customers as well as the EnBW e-mobility comfort package , which, in addition to the possibility of charging in the EnBW HyperNetz, also includes charging at home and, if desired, a wall box.

      Fast charging more relevant than normal charging in public spaces

      With the new tariff structure, EnBW is doing justice to the developments of the past few years, in which rapid charging (DC) has gained considerably in importance compared to slower normal charging (AC) [4] in public spaces. Because most electric cars on the market today can use high charging capacities to absorb large amounts of electricity in a short time. Above all, fast charging fits perfectly into people's everyday lives, for example if they charge their car while shopping or use short breaks to recharge on long journeys. This is reflected in the fact that the majority of EnBW mobility+ customers today primarily use fast DC charging points. They also charge the majority of the electricity at fast charging points – and the trend is increasing.

      EnBW has been supporting this growing need for fast charging options for years. It focuses on expanding the nationwide, public fast-charging infrastructure, for which it invests well over 100 million euros per year. It already operates the largest fast charging network in Germany. By 2030, it will provide around 30,000 fast charging points, which accounts for a relevant proportion of the 130,000 to 150,000 fast charging points that will be required by then. This number covers the entire charging requirement in public spaces for the 15 million electric cars planned on Germany's roads by then [5] . EnBW sees the need for slower AC charging primarily in private and semi-public spaces, such as in multi-storey car parks or at work, where vehicles stand for significantly longer.

      The new EnBW mobility+ charging tariffs also reflect another development over the past few months: During this time, the roaming prices for charging with other operators for slower AC charging have more and more aligned with those for fast charging with direct current. Roaming prices are the costs that an e-mobility provider pays to a charging infrastructure operator when the provider's customers use the operator's charging points. EnBW has to take this development into account when setting its tariffs, which is why the kilowatt-hour prices for normal charging are rising more sharply.

      [2] On March 1, 2019, EnBW introduced the first purely kWh-based charging tariff that was also standardized abroad. Since then, it had only increased its EnBW mobility+ charging tariffs on July 6, 2021.

      [4] DC stands for English Direct Current and means fast charging with direct current. AC stands for Alternating Current and means slower normal charging with alternating current.

      [5] The often discussed one million charging points by 2030 are based on outdated and underestimated assumptions about charging capacities of vehicles and charging infrastructure.
