As part of its mission to electrify urban transport, RATP is upgrading its charging infrastructure by deploying a network of 1,100 chargers from Polish company Ekoenergetyka.

The deployment involves setting up chargers at five different depots across Paris. While the network already has 90 kW chargers, the focus is shifting towards more efficient charging solutions tailored to the needs of RATP’s fleet. Night charging at depots has emerged as the best strategy, ensuring that the fleet is ready to go every morning, fully charged, and with minimal impact on the city’s grid during peak hours.

RATP’s collaboration with Ekoenergetyka isn’t new. The companies have been working together for a while, developing solutions that are not just innovative but also eco-friendly. This expansion is a testament to the success of this partnership and a shared vision for a greener future.

As Paris moves towards a more electrified future, RATP and Ekoenergetyka are showing the world how urban centres can transform their public transport systems. The pair say it is much more than just implementing chargers in a big city; it’s about building a sustainable, efficient, and environmentally friendly future for urban mobility.
