Charging station operator Allego, energy cooperative Deventer Energie Coöperatie and energy company Pure Energie are working together on a project for charging stations in the municipality of Deventer which are powered by wind energy.

38 charging points for electric cars have been installed by Allego in the municipality of Deventer. The 38 charging stations have an estimated annual consumption of 383,700 kWh, which saves almost 250,000 kg of CO2.

The charging stations take electricity from the local Kloosterlanden Wind Farm. The wind farm is a collaboration between Pure Energie and the energy cooperative Deventer Energie Coöperatie and consists of two Enercon turbines, type E-92 with 2.35 MW capacity, which generate approximately 8.4 million kilowatt hours of green electricity annually. The wind farm, located along the A1 highway at Deventer,. has been operational since 2015.

Allego said all their charging points in their network are supplied by green electricty. The company see the combination of electric driving with green energy is the way today to reduce the environmental impact of road transport in the greatest possible way.
