Allego signs long-term power purchase agreement providing 100% renewable electricity


25-gigawatt-hour, 10-year deal will help mitigate volatility in the company’s input base

Allego NV (“Allego” or the “Company”) (NYSE:ALLG), a leading pan-European public electric vehicle fast-charging network, today announced the signing of its first power purchase agreement term (“PPA”) with one of the main independent power producers.

Allego will begin receiving 25 gigawatt hours of renewable electricity starting January 1, 2023 to support the majority of the company’s operations in Germany. The signed agreement represents approximately 16% of Allego’s entire European charging network. In an ongoing effort to further hedge input costs and raw material volatility, the company plans to sign additional PPAs to cover more than 80% of Allego’s operations.

Mathieu Bonnet, Chairman and CEO of Allego, said: “I am pleased that we have signed our first power purchase agreement for 25 gigawatt hours. By using 100% renewable energy from a solar farm, we reinforce our mission to supply our charging stations with 100% green energy. Additionally, this is the first step in our execution strategy to cover at least 80% of our generation in 2023 with long-term, low-cost PPAs based on renewable energy assets. We continue to have active discussions with other providers to cover more of our network.
