Eşarj has the right to establish 53 high-speed charging stations in 495 provinces within the scope of the "Fast Charging Stations Program for Electric Vehicles". kazanwas. Eşarj, in which Enerjisa Enerji owns 94 percent majority shares, will invest approximately 300 million TL in the station network. With the new investments, Eşarj will have Turkey's largest and fastest electric vehicle charging station network in terms of installed power.
Eşarj, Turkey's first and fastest charging station company, will become one of the four largest companies in Turkey with its 300 Million TL investment within the scope of the Fast Charging Stations Program for Electric Vehicles, which was implemented in order to spread the use of electric vehicles in Turkey and to encourage fast charging station investment. It aims to install an additional 495 high-speed charging stations on its existing charging network.
Eşarj, whose majority shares were purchased by Enerjisa Enerji in 2018 with the goal of a sustainable and environmentally friendly future, is the first player in Turkey to provide charging operator service since 2009. Operating with 269 charging stations, 258 of which are fast charging stations, in 496 locations in Turkey, Eşarj will be the leader of the sector by having Turkey's largest and fastest electric vehicle charging station network in terms of installed power.
From the charging station investments to be made, it is aimed to prevent the emission of 2030 million kg of CO418 gas with the sales of a total of 598 million kWh additional electricity until the end of 2 and the charging processes. This figure will prevent the formation of the amount of CO37 that 2 million trees can clean.
We will be the playmaker of the electric vehicle ecosystem in our country.
Eşarj Chairman of the Board and Enerjisa Enerji CEO Murat Pınar made the following statement:
“As the dangers of global climate change become more apparent; Investors, consumers and lawmakers also have rising expectations for a net-zero emissions transition from companies. As Turkey's leading and largest electricity distribution and retail sales company, it responds to all these developments with a proactive approach; We realize many projects and investments. With Turkey's first and fastest charging station for electric vehicles, Eşarj is one of our most valuable investments as a response to our trust in the future of our country. We are proud of being a company that makes the first investment and sets a vision in the field of emobility in our country, and I would like to underline that we will support our country's infrastructure investments in every field in order for Eşarj to be a company that achieves the firsts of its sector.

As Eşarj, we are working with the aim of being the pioneer of steps that will benefit the world ecosystem as well as the ecosystem of Turkish Electric Vehicle Charging Stations when we come to 2030, and to be among the playmaker companies in this ecosystem. With these investments, we are demonstrating our claim within the electric vehicle ecosystem in Turkey. With the announced results of the program initiated by our Ministry, we will bring together our high-speed stations and our stations that serve the efficient, safe, technology-oriented and sustainable future at many points with Electric Vehicle users in a very short time.”
Century-old automobile culture is changing
The dynamics of the industry and the century-old automobile culture are going through a major change process with the advent of electric vehicles. This change requires close planning, coordination and cooperation between electric vehicles and the automotive and energy sectors. Electric vehicle (EV) fleets are growing rapidly in many of the world's largest vehicle markets, according to the 2021 Global Electric Vehicle Outlook Report. Nearly 3 million EVs have been sold worldwide (4,6% sales share), with Europe surpassing the People's Republic of China as the world's largest electric vehicle (EV) market for the first time. Current policies around the world show healthy growth in this decade: EVs reach their full potential in reducing carbon emissions, significant investments are needed to decarbonize electricity generation, integrate EVs into power systems, build charging infrastructure, and advance sustainable battery production and recycling. needs. According to the data of JATO Dynamics, which also conducts research in the field of global automotive data and market trends, the number of electric and hybrid vehicles sold in Europe in August last year exceeded the number of diesel vehicles for the first time.
