Netherlands is an interesting country for EV adoption in many ways, but especially from the charging infrastructure outlook.

Obviously, one of the most well known projects is the Fastned charging network, one of the world’s premium fast charging providers, set-up along highways all over the country, but there are also other bold endeavors.

For example, the Municipality of Rotterdam, together with 16 other municipalities in the surrounding area, have decided to install 4,000 more charging points by 2018.

4,000 is more public charging points than many countries have.

“Earlier this year, along with 16 other municipalities, the Municipality of Rotterdam put together a comprehensive tender for adding more charging stations to the streets: an extension of up to 4,000 new charging points for electric cars in its entire concession area, of which 1,800 in the City of Rotterdam.”

ENGIE Services was awarded the contract to deployment, management and operation of the stations.

Please correct the title.
Write either “Rotterdam region to increase number of charging points with 4,000 extra by 2018”
“Rotterdam region to increase number of charging points by 4,000 by 2018”
“Rotterdam, 4,000 extra charging points”

There are already more than 4,000 charging points in this area.

Another Euro point of view

4,000 charging points…wow. I am rather confused here in between contradictory information. Some from fanboys putting forward that establishing a charging network is something that puts Tesla years ahead of competition and this info that seems to mean that establishing a network is nothing more than the rather inexpensive action of connecting a box (charger) to the existing electrical cable network, this being done hundreds of time over a rather short period of time allover Europe. So ? A kool-aid drinking issue or is it more complicated than this ? Could perhaps someone (neutral) explain ?

I’m not sure of extra chargers are added. Most chargers ate able to Serve 2 cars, but usually just one of the parking spaces is crossed out. So, adding extra paint to the streets probably takes care of most of the extra charging points.

I was lucky to have the first plugin in my neighbourhood, so I got my private public Cross. The other side is ICED most of the time. It seems my neighbours want to Express that they don’t like other vehicles charging in their Area.
