Mer’s approach is comprehensive and forward-thinking. It involves diverse site designs tailored to specific needs. Smaller locations, labelled S and M, will seamlessly integrate into existing commercial properties. At these sites, both the charging facilities and their surroundings will be designed with accessibility in mind, with room for future expansion.

For larger locations, labelled L and XL, Mer plans to create greenfield charging hubs on unused sites. These hubs will be sustainable, innovative charging centres of the future. They aim to enhance the EV charging experience by offering additional amenities such as food and beverage outlets in partnership with regional providers.

In terms of sustainability, Mer stands out by ensuring that each charging hub harmonizes with its local environment. This minimises land sealing, especially at smaller sites. Larger projects will incorporate sustainable materials like wooden roofing and integrated PV modules. Moreover, all charging hubs will exclusively use 100% green electricity.

Mer will accept a wide range of payment methods to ensure user convenience, including common charging cards, credit cards, and smartphone payments.

Mer’s holistic approach to sustainability, design, and its commitment to user convenience have positioned it as a key player in Germany’s EV charging network. This contract win marks a significant step toward making emobility a reality for all drivers in Germany.
