Your questions


At TotalEnergies, our priority is to keep you informed through listening and dialogue. These questions are your questions.

Where do things stand as regards the development of electric charging points in France?

The number of electric vehicles in circulation, whether all-electric, hybrid, or plug-in hybrid, is constantly rising. In 2021 in France for example, an increase of 54% was noted compared to the previous year for registered all-electric vehicles. These figures are set to increase, owing to the various European projects that plan to ban the sale of combustion-powered cars as of 2035, and their total eradication by 2050.
In the light of this future development, we must provide charging solutions for electric vehicle drivers.

On the national territory, we currently operate over 10,000 charging points, distributed over different segments:

  • On the road network, we operate several public charging networks including Belib’ in Paris, France’s top charging network, with over 2,000 charging points. We are also beginning to install a hundred or so charging stations in the Aix-Marseille metropolis.
  • In companies, so that employees on a given site can charge their vehicles during the working day, and also to accompany professionals in the transition of their fleet.
  • At home, through the energy offer by TotalEnergies.
  • When traveling:
    • in around a hundred service stations with a high-power fast-charging offer. We are also converting certain service stations into all-electric ones, such as the one at La Défense, inaugurated in May 2021
    • in underground parking lots, we started up the first Belib’ fast-charging hub in July, and others are to follow before the end of the year. Alongside that, we have opened Europe’s largest underground charging hub - comprising 500 charging points - in the SAEMES Madeleine-Tronchet parking lot.

All these segments are complementary and, together, they meet all the different user needs.

Are you behind the individual loans scheme, in particular in the form of Guaranteed Placement Certificates, or is it a scam?

TotalEnergies has nothing to do with such loans. These are financial fraud attempts, usurping the identity of TotalEnergies and, in certain cases, that of its employees. Our Company has set the necessary procedures in motion with the relevant departments to ensure that the fake e-mail addresses identified and used by the fraudsters can no longer be used, and we have also informed the French Financial Markets Authority (AMF). The Company has filed a complaint with the competent legal authorities and encourages anyone who has been subject to fraud, to report it to the competent legal authorities. In the light of the increase in fraudulent placement hoaxes over the last few months, the AMF has issued practical advice to help people avoid them:, and has also set up a dedicated phone line: Épargne Info Service, on +33 (0)1 53 45 62 00, Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Until when can I purchase TotalEnergies shares if I want to benefit from the next dividend?

There are two important dates in the dividend payment process: the ex-dividend date and the payment date.
The ex-dividend date is the date on which any shares purchased do not entitle the shareholder to the ex-dividend payment (when the stock exchange opens).
The shareholder selling the share will benefit from this dividend.
The payment date is the date as from which the dividend is liable to be paid.
In order to benefit from the next dividend, you must therefore purchase your shares at least a day before the ex-dividend date.

TotalEnergies pays its shareholders a dividend on a quarterly basis, as interim dividends according to a specific calendar. Moreover, the Company has announced the payment of an exceptional dividend of €1 per share in December 2022. The next dividend will be the exceptional dividend, whose ex-dividend date is planned for Tuesday, December 6. You must therefore purchase your actions at the latest on Monday, December 5, 2022, to be entitled.
