The best possible energy mix: FinCo Fuel and EQUANS work together on Dutch electrification

FinCo Fuel and EQUANS, market leader in sustainable technical services, are entering into a three-year partnership. The aim is to further stimulate e-mobility in the Netherlands. It is the first time that FinCo Fuel takes strategic steps in this respect.
The best possible energy mix

Further greening of the transport world

Electric transport plays an important role in reducing CO2 emissions and improving air quality. The number of electric and plug-in electric vehicles on Dutch roads is therefore growing steadily. There is still a lot of sustainable profit to be made with liquid fuels now and in the future, but FinCo Fuel wants to look further. Other energy carriers are also needed to make the transport world as green as possible.

The cooperation with EQUANS gives us the opportunity to contribute to this. Not only does it allow us to exchange our knowledge: EQUANS on the electric energy market and FinCo Fuel on the laws and regulations 'Energie voor Vervoer' and the developments therein. The commitment also results in good rates for EV drivers who use EQUANS' charging infrastructure and its customers including counties and businesses. This will facilitate the transition to more and more electric driving.

An attractive combination

'FinCo Fuel is proud to contribute in this way to make Dutch transport more sustainable,' says Pieter Peeters, CEO of FinCo Fuel Netherlands. 'Our alliance with EQUANS fits FinCo's vision on energy transition: there is no single solution for making the transport sector more sustainable, you have to go for the best possible combination of green energy carriers. That means that in addition to liquid low-carbon fuels you also look at, as in this case, electric driving.'

Ralph van Moorsel, Director of Sustainable Energy & Networks at EQUANS, is also happy with the collaboration. 'The knowledge, creativity and hands on mentality of FinCo Fuel fit seamlessly with EQUANS' mission to work together on a sustainable and accessible Netherlands' he says. 'FinCo Fuel is demonstrating that it takes the opportunities presented by the energy transition seriously, just like us.’

Rotterdam, 28 December 2021

At FinCo Fuel, we are always looking for better. Better raw materials, better conversion technologies that result in fuels with even greater CO2 savings. That is an ongoing quest, in which we gather knowledge and experience with various advanced products that can be blended. For example, we recently carried out a test in our FinCo Fuel distribution system on the blending of a new bio-product: bio-methanol.


A new step in sustainable financing

SDG goals FinCo Fuel
Rotterdam, 3 December 2021

A company that has the ambition to initiate change, needs to have that ambition reflected in everything. From its founding in 2013, FinCo Fuel has ensured that the sustainability of the energy market has become more firmly anchored in the organization's DNA and strategy every year. Not only by continuously greening our own processes and adapting them to the new times, but also by investing in cleaner fuels, which also allows our customers to reduce their CO2 emissions.


Finally solving the problems

Finally solving the problems

African Clean Energy (ACE) recently won the EY Social Impact Entrepreneur of the Year Award, an award for successful and innovative initiatives that help make the world a more beautiful and better place. It was a wonderful reward for what ACE has been doing for ten years: ensuring that the world’s poorest households have access to clean energy supplies. The family business has already sold more than 70,000 units of the ACE One: a hybrid stove that burns biomass in a clean way by means of a fan that runs on solar energy. Users no longer need to cook on an open fire, which is beneficial to both their health and air quality. And as well as cooking their food on it, they can also charge their mobile phones with it. What’s more, the ACE One ensures a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.
