Over the last years electric mobility has seen a rapid rise in the Netherlands, amounting to more than 125.000 electric vehicles of which approximately 10% is fully electric. The charging infrastructure, consisting of public, semi-public and fast charging points, has evolved as well, with almost doubling itself each two years. Furthermore, companies in the Netherlands have taken some important steps regarding the interoperability of the charging infrastructure, and recently the Living Lab Smart Charging has been created to pioneer in the field of charging EVs with solar and wind energy. This makes the Netherlands a frontrunner on multiple aspects in the field of electric mobility.
This knowledge and hands-on experience has been combined in E-Mobility Partners, which stimulates the cooperation between German and Dutch organizations on electric mobility related themes. The aim is to establish cooperation between governments, knowledge institutes and companies from both countries.
E-Mobility Partners focuses on the following relevant themes:
– Urban Mobility
– Inner City Distribution
– Charging Infrastructure
Within the partnership, there are several organizations that have solutions to these themes. The partnership also involves strategy development with cities and regions to support decision makers in their search for professional policy making and making correct decisions regarding electric mobility.
