businesswire | May 22, 2023 | Read time : 02:45 min

Fisker Inc. driven by a mission to create the world's most emotional and sustainable electric vehicles, reaffirms its commitment to sustainability through its renewable-energy charging partnership with Allego B.V. ("Allego").

Fisker Ocean drivers can charge their EVs with 100 percent renewable energy in Europe through Fisker's partnership with Allego. Recognizing that use of renewable energy significantly reduces CO2 footprint over a vehicle's lifetime, Fisker prioritizes "green charging" operators that power their public charging networks with renewable energy. Preferred energy sources are: Solar, Wind, Hydro (small hydro preferred), Geothermal, Ocean movement, Hydrogen and Biomass (from renewable feedstock). By using green charging, Fisker estimates a 40% or more reduction in CO2 footprint during an EV's use phase1.

"Charging matters: it's a significant part of an EV's carbon footprint over its life cycle. Customers are placing greater importance on the sources of electricity they use to charge their EVs, and Fisker will continue to lead the industry in ESG practices and give customers the most sustainable choices," Chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker said. “We challenge brands in all industries to do the same to help provide a clean future for all."

Fisker partners with Allego, a leading pan-European EV charging network, to provide Fisker Ocean drivers in Europe easy access to renewable-energy charging at all Allego charge points. Every kWh supplied by Allego's charging stations is 100 percent renewable, certified by Guarantee of Origin Certificates (GOs). Through its energy platform, Allego powers its chargers with renewables generated from wind or PV (photovoltaic) farms with long term power purchase agreements.

Using the Fisker Ocean's navigation system and the FISKER FLEXSM Charge app, drivers can seamlessly locate Allego stations and access one year of free charging2 at over 27,000 eligible charging ports.

Fisker's focus on green charging in an EV's use phase is just one aspect of Fisker's overall commitment to sustainability across all phases of a vehicle's life cycle: upstream sourcing of materials, manufacturing, inbound/outbound logistics, use phase, and end of use/recycling. Aligning with Fisker's commitment to transparency, the company will publish the Ocean Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) later this spring.

Mainstream Renewable Power and Ocean Winds partner on second Scotwind floating offshore wind site

PRNewswire | August 18, 2023

Mainstream Renewable Power ("Mainstream"), the global pureplay renewable energy company, and Ocean Winds, the international joint venture between EDPR and ENGIE dedicated to offshore wind energy, have partnered to develop a second ScotWind site of 500 MW east of Shetland, expanding the overall footprint of the Arven Offshore Wind Farm ("Arven") to 2.3 GW. Arven comprises two sites. The first is the 1.8 GW site east of the Shetland Islands which was awarded to the 50:50 joint venture between Mainstream and Ocean Winds as part of the ScotWind leasing process in 2022. Separately, Ocean Winds was awarded a 500 MW site in the same NE1 block. Mainstream has now completed its acquisition of a 50% shareholding in Ocean Wind's holding company and the two sites are now being developed jointly to maximise their potential. Mainstream and Ocean Winds have a longstanding partnership. The companies are currently developing a 1.2 GW floating offshore wind farm in South Korea and are in a consortium for the upcoming Utsira Nord floating offshore wind tender in Norway. By extending this partnership and developing the two sites off Shetland, Mainstream and Ocean Winds will leverage their combined expertise to maximise benefits for Shetland and Scotland, create supply chain opportunities and jobs, whilst contributing to the UK's net zero ambition. The partners have commenced early-stage local engagement, meeting with supply chain partners, local authorities and fisheries representatives. Adam Morrison, UK Country Manager for Ocean Winds, said "The collaboration between Ocean Winds and Mainstream Renewable Power marks a significant milestone, combining our expertise and resources to develop our largest floating offshore wind farm to date. This experienced partnership will capitalise on delivery experience both in Scotland and internationally. "We have already commenced surveys and a programme of early local engagement, including the fishing industry, and we are committed to working closely with the local community in developing this larger Arven project, which will be a significant driver for the energy transition." Tove Røskaft, Head of Offshore Wind for Mainstream, said "Arven offers a unique combination of scale, world-class wind resource and routes to market which enable it to deliver a range of compelling benefits for the good of Shetland, Scotland and the UK. "Mainstream has a solid track record in Scotland and the UK, having successfully developed the Neart na Gaoithe and the Hornsea zone which is the world's largest offshore wind farm in operation. This remains a core offshore wind market for Mainstream and we look forward, together with Ocean Winds, to continuing our engagements with Crown Estate Scotland and other key stakeholders."
