#CommitedToBetterMobility : Total’s ambition for tomorrow’s mobility

As a historical player in energy for mobility, Total is involved in improving the energy efficiency of vehicles. Total is investing in the development of electric mobility through the expertise of its new business line EV Charge, which offers complete and easy-to-use charging solutions for electric vehicles to meet all customers' needs.

In 2019, Total's operated charge points delivered more than 10 GWh of electrical energy, enabling its customers to travel nearly 60 million kilometers in electric vehicles (i.e. 1,500 times around the Earth) and avoid nearly 7,500 tons of greenhouse gas emissions (CO2*). No mean feat, considering the sustainable mobility arm of the business was only established 10 years ago.

    It is a transformation for the multinational, but one that makes good sense, "Total has been such a big player in both energy and mobility for so long now, it's a natural fit in terms of the business," says Pierre Clasquin, Total's VP EV Charge. He came on board as the e-mobility lead when his own company was acquired by Total in 2018, "The reason I got into this sector, coming with a tech background, was that I wanted to make a personal impact. I was convinced, and still am, that using tech in a meaningful way can really move traditional environments. Being with a huge company like Total in this space we can really make a difference."

    Clasquin's remit is wide and his strategy is ambitious: by 2025, Total aims to have 150,000 operated charge points in Europe and a network of 1,000 high power charge points (up to 175 kW) in 300 Total service stations by 2022. Equivalent to one every 150 kms in Western Europe.

    "Disruption in this sector doesn't just mean moving from fuel-powered to electric vehicles. We are also fragmenting a business model we've had for decades, the service station," he continues, "With e-mobility you'll be able to recharge anywhere, home, work, on the roadside, at the mall, everywhere you park."
