Led by EDF and gathering 6 partners, including car manufacturers such as Renault, Volkswagen, BMW and Nissan, CORRI-DOOR is a collaborative project aiming at fostering and speeding-up electric vehicles’ penetration in France, through the realization of an industrial pilot of deployment and operation of 200 fast charging stations (50kW) along the main French motorways and TEN-T axes, linking together large urban areas and suburban population centres.
The CORRI-DOOR project has deployed a network for fast charging covering almost the entire French territory. 200 multi-standards and interoperable fast-charging stations have been installed within the framework of CORRI-DOOR, and co-financed by the European Commission through the Connecting Europe Facility Programme.
The CORRI-DOOR network enables the users, regardless of the EV brand, to charge in less than 30 minutes, thus contributing to tackle range anxiety and autonomy-related constraints. All these charging stations are fed by 100% renewable electricity supplied by EDF: for every kWh consumed, EDF is injecting 1 kWh of renewable electricity in the electricity grid.
Thanks to the analysis of users’ behaviour and relying on the results of the deployment, CORRI-DOOR provides unique recommendations and feedbacks related to users’ expectations and requirements, business models and scale-up conditions, interoperable connections with other already existing EV charging networks in France and neighbouring countries, paving the way for the EU-wide deployment of similar infrastructures.
- BUDGET: 9,7 M€
- EU GRANT: 4,85 M€
CORRI-DOOR benefitted from the EU Financing Programme “Conencting Europe Facility – Transport”, which aims at encouraging the development of a pan European infrastructure of transport for roads, railroads, river and maritime waterways.
