Grow And Diversify Your Business With An End-To-End EV Charging Solution Built With Global Scalability In Mind
The rise of the electric vehicle is changing the mobility world at a rapid pace – and that means the oil & gas industry has to gear up for a rapid transformation too. Being able to meet the high demand for climate-neutral mobility, gas station networks of the future will offer charging stations instead of petrol pumps. The head organization of the European environmental association's Transport & Environment (T&E) is certain that around 13 million electric cars will be on Europe's roads in 2025 and 44 million in 2050. Public charging will move from an anonymous transaction to a long-term relationship with full customer data ownership.

EV Charging for the Oil & Gas Sector: FAQ
Should we hold off on installing EV Charging infrastructure at our gas stations, as electricity could in the future be replaced by other energy sources such as hydrogen?
It’s no longer a question of whether EVs are coming, but rather how fast they will dominate the market. The total number of charge points in Europe is estimated to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 31.1% from 1.3 million in 2019 to 5.2 million by 2024. The EU predicts that there will be 13 million zero and low-emission vehicles by 2025.
It is likely that diesel and petrol will be needed for years to come. Hydrogen will continue to power big industrial processes and long-distance heavy-duty vehicles, while new liquified energy sources are being developed for other means of transportation. However, it is now widely accepted that EVs will shape the future of passenger vehicles and vans. Keep in mind that around 90% of domestic transport consists of trips shorter than 150 kilometers, meaning that even today’s majority of transit (and thus a vast market share) can be handled electrically.
Market research indicates that the last window of opportunity to enter the EV Charging market in Europe is in the next three years. By 2024–2026, a small number of exceptionally large players will monopolize this sector, making the market much harder to penetrate. Those considering market entry are advised not to hesitate, but also to carefully consider business strategies. Our EV experts are available for a free consultation if you would like to discuss how to get started. Please get in touch with us.
Better hardware is being developed all the time. Should we wait until the technology is more advanced before investing in expensive infrastructure?
Over the years, charging stations have advanced significantly from non-connected hardware to smart devices using connectivity technologies such as Wi-Fi, GPRS and 4G, which allow remote monitoring, repairs, white label billing and more. Car manufacturers and governments have reduced connection options to just two – Type 1 sockets for Japan and North America and Type 2 for Europe. The infrastructure installed today is robust and has the capacity to be in use for the next thirty to forty years. But while there is a range of hardware products flooding the market, waiting for the best is not a winning strategy in this business climate. Some truly excellent devices, many certified by us, already exist. We would be happy to recommend one suitable for your business needs.
It is, however, just as important to focus on hardware-neutral and scalable software solutions. This ensures that your business can keep up with the speed of technological development and adapt to regulations as governments race to catch up and implement consumer protection. Such software solutions have already proven their ability to evolve with industry standardization and changing trends in transport and logistics.
The team at has·to·be gmbh has a wealth of industry knowledge and connections. We can quickly connect you with hardware and solutions partners well-positioned to advise you on the best options for your business. Please get in touch with us.
Significant support from governments is helping Oil & Gas companies incorporate EV Charging at fuel stations. For example, German gas stations are required by law to offer EV Charging and are provided with subsidies of up to €30,000 for the installation of charging infrastructure. Similarly, several banks and energy utility companies are offering low-interest loans. It’s worth doing your research to better understand the incentives currently available in your local area.
Electricity is relatively cheap for the driving force that it provides. Is it possible to make a profit from selling electricity at fuel stations?
Yes! Making the successful transition from gas stations to service-oriented mobility hubs can be both profitable and straightforward. Fuel retailers are in an excellent position to profit from providing EV Charging services at their gas stations. Thanks to extended ‘refueling’ time, they’re finding new ways to capture revenues from customers making purchases while waiting for their vehicles to charge – similar to the business model most Oil & Gas companies have been using for years. The transition is further enabled by fuel retailers’ existing customer-facing infrastructure. Many fuel distributors provide branded credit cards, billing, apps, and other special offers, all of which can be easily integrated using interoperable charging infrastructure software.
