Klimaatfonds Nederland and Allego have jointly signed a Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (CPPA) to purchase sustainably generated electricity from Zonnepark Adijk II. This way, Allego secures a long-term supply of green electricity to charge its customers' EVs and actively contributes to reducing CO2 emissions in transport.
Green electricity directly from the solar farmSolar Park Aadijk II is being built in the coming months and will soon generate around 45,000 megawatt hours of renewable electricity each year. The park will be connected to the public electricity grid by the end of 2023. It can charge around 2,000 electric vehicles daily via the various Allego charging stations. To make EV charging fast, safe and easy for all users, Allego is working on a reliable ecosystem to source its energy 100% sustainably and with stability for the future.
Mathieu Bonnet, CEO of Allego: "Klimaatfonds Nederland is a reliable partner for Allego to realise the supply of 100% sustainably generated energy for our EV drivers. It suits our vision to offer every EV rider the security of going anywhere from Allego's reliable and sustainable charging network."

"The CPPA with Allego is a new milestone for both parties and, in addition, a good example of two companies where the sustainable ambitions fit well together." said Tim Damen of Klimaatfonds Nederland. "Thanks to the agreement with Allego, we know for sure that the electricity produced by our solar farm will be used sustainably and significantly contribute to making road transport in the Netherlands more sustainable."
