Buy groceries and fill up the car at the same time – this is the future of mobility,” the director said. General Spar Christoph Holzer.

SPAR and Energie Steiermark will make this possible in more locations in the coming years. Electronic charging stations from the largest energy supply company in Styria are already available to customers at four LSpar locations in Styria. By 2028, more than 350 additional charging points will be built at Styrian SPAR sites. “With the SPAR E charging infrastructure project, we are starting what is currently the largest public charging infrastructure expansion project in Styria and we are investing more than 8.8 million euros in this,” says Christian Beurer, CEO of Energie Steiermark.
