Property owners, we have a solution for every situation

What type of rent does Driveco transfer to the landowner?

After studying the eligibility of your site, Driveco provides you with an initial feasibility and profitability study, including an audit of your location and a concrete partnership proposal (the proposed rent). We generally offer several options: a fixed rent only or a fixed + variable rent (a % of the generated revenue) depending on the performance of the charging station, or other alternative structures according to the needs of the partner and the configuration of the site in question.

Can I set up a Driveco station in an underground parking lot?

Yes. If you have one or more underground parking lots, this is entirely possible, under certain conditions. The parking lot must be safe, fire-resistant and comply with the latest safety standards. These points will be discussed with you during the preliminary assessment of your site. We will then be able to confirm whether or not your site is eligible.

Which criteria must I meet to host a Driveco station on my site?

We look at different criteria to ensure consistency in the choice of our locations and the profitability of the location. We study each site on a case-by-case basis, because each location has its specificities. We are particularly attentive to the geographical location (vehicle traffic, main roads, urban or suburban area, presence of other stations nearby), to the available surface area (generally 2 to 16 parking spaces), to the accessibility or to the potential of nearby users (such as the proximity of a fleet of EVs of a company or community).

What happens in case of damage, vandalism, or accident at the station?

In the event of damage, vandalism, or an accident at a station, Driveco’s third-party liability insurance covers the damage.

What legal framework does the partnership with Driveco involve?

In most cases, it is a 10 to 15-year civil lease. If you are interested, we can provide you with a standard lease template to speed up discussions. This contractual framework’s benefits are twofold: it guarantees you a long-term income with a trusted partner, and enables Driveco to recover the cost of installing and operating the station. We can accommodate for specific exit clauses, should you require it.

Who covers the installation and operation of a Driveco station?

We operate as a third-party investor, meaning that Driveco covers 100% of the installation and operating costs. It’s the above-mentioned “0 capex, 0 opex” model. In other words, Driveco handles the purchase of the equipment (chargers, electrical transformers etc.), the administrative procedures (requests for connection to the power grid, requests to the town hall etc.), coordinates the installation and power-up of the station. Once the station is up and running, Driveco is responsible for its operation, including maintenance and 24/7 customer service (based in France). Obviously, Driveco then also transfers rent to the landowner for the property’s lease.

What if I have to carry out construction work that affects the station's accessibility?

During the period of inaccessibility of the station, you will not receive any rent payments, and the lease will be extended by the period of unavailability. Financial compensation may be requested depending on the duration of inaccessibility.

What happens in the event of store closure, relocation, change of store or land assignment?

Driveco and the landowner will meet to discuss next steps. We contractually offer exit mechanisms for both parties, and we would be happy to discuss them with you.
