E4SM: What is SMEG’s positioning on the electric mobility market?
Thomas Vanquaethem: SMEG is a historical operator of energy infrastructures and services. We are particularly involved in the production of carbon-free electricity, the production and distribution of urban heating and cooling, and energy management through the deployment of digital services. With evzen, our electric mobility offer, SMEG supports local authorities, commercial establishments, and companies in their energy transition. We deploy and operate turnkey recharging and car-sharing solutions over the long term.
E4SM: What is your third-party investor offer?
Thomas Vanquaethem: We finance, deploy, and operate fast-charging stations in our customers’ parking lots over the long term, paying them a fee in return. We are truly committed to a long-term approach, with a commitment to the performance of our infrastructure. We want our projects to be part of a broader ecomobility approach, for example by training stakeholders and giving them the means to commit to us. Our goal is to become a reference network for public charging of electric vehicles.
E4SM: What do you expect from your participation in the 4th edition of the E4SM Forum?
