The Netherlands Knowledge Platform for Charging Infrastructure (NKL) is a collaboration of organizations that are involved with the public charging of electric vehicles in the Netherlands.
The NKL was founded in 2014 to increase collaboration between these various organizations. The primary goal is to lower the cost of public charging infrastructure through joint projects. In this manner, we make the advancement of electric driving possible. By increasing information exchange, research and support of various initiatives, the NKL seeks to strengthen the position of the Netherlands in the electronic vehicle sector.
The NKL is a knowledge platform that helps make public charging more affordable. It accomplishes this:
- In a manner that contributes to positive market forces and to a strong competition and export position of the Netherlands in the field of knowledge, technology, innovation and trade.
