The Private Stations Business Model (PSBM)
TotalEnergies operates private stations for refueling natural gas for vehicles (LNG, CNG, biomethane) and hydrogen (H2, renewable H2), as well as for recharging with electricity (EV). The Private Station Business Model targets captive fleets: a homebased fleet of vehicles with a predictable refueling pattern and driving schedule. Suitable for any type of vehicle that regularly visits a depot, such as: city buses, garbage trucks, ferries, boats, and cabs.
We have the data, know-how and resources to build a profitable business-case and make new energies available and affordable. By integrating technical knowledge and operational experience into an end-to-end solution, we are able to deliver ‘Fueling-as-a-Service’ with the Private Station Business Model. For more than 10 years, TotalEnergies has been successfully operating multiple private refueling stations in the Netherlands. The operations vary from 15 to 150 buses to be refueled per day, per station.
This video presents the private refueling station of Dutch public transport bus operator EBS in Den Hoorn. Operational since 2019 until 2027, the EBS station currently refuels 30 buses per day with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).
TotalEnergies provides EBS with the full Private Station Business Model, based on DBFMO:
- Design the complete station.
