PCC to expand EV charging network with new EU funds

Greek energy company PCC announced on Monday (8 January) that it has secured funding through the EU’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for an expansion of its “PPC blue” electric vehicle (EV) public charging network (HPDC).

The new PPC blue superchargers are being installed in 13 areas nationwide. With energy coming exclusively from renewable sources, the new PPC blue fast charging points will also be easily accessible to people with disabilities, whose service will be prioritised, the company said in a press release.

“The electrification bet is a national bet and PPC blue is a key player in developing the infrastructure and applications that lead to its achievement. Heading towards this direction, we are contracting with the Connecting Europe Facility, and together we are investing in the rapid deployment of fast charging, at key hubs throughout Greece, said Kyriakos Kofinas, PPC’s General Manager of e-mobility. “The growth of green mobility for a more sustainable future is a shared goal and we are planning to achieve it through synergies and cooperation.”

The company currently operates more than 200 direct current (DC) charging points, of which 36 are high-power fast charging points of up to 300 kW (HPDC).
