Overview of Dutch projects on policymaking
The Netherlands is the global front runner in development and rollout of charging infrastructure. Get inspired by these projects that stimulate and support charging developments.
Benchmark review: charging infrastructure costs and revenues
NKL conducts an annual benchmark review of charging infrastructure costs and revenues. The resulting data form the basis for recommendations for improving the business case for charging infrastructure, and delivering usable insights to government bodies and market actors. The benchmarks come about through engagements with the sector in the form of interviews, surveys and an expert meeting. The involvement of so many stakeholders means outcome support is broad-based. The indicators show that the business case for charging infrastructure in the Netherlands has improved in just a few years.
Maturity model: professionalizing the market
Rapid market maturation is essential for parties seeking to capitalize on the expected growth of EV in the Netherlands. To this end, in 2017 the benchmark was expanded to incorporate a maturity model for assessing the professionalism of the market, with a focus on policy and organization, funding, market forces, and alignment with energy transition. The model generates action lines for further professionalization.
Beyond the charging station: platform for alternative solutions
If the Netherlands wants to keep up with the growth in EV use, its going to need a lot more charging points – but achieving that using only charging stations is going to be difficult. That’s why local authorities are increasingly implementing alternatives such as charging pools, ‘hidden’ charging points, and smart integration with other types of street furniture. The organization for charging alternatives Platform Anders Laden offers an overview of ongoing municipal pilots that includes do’s and don’ts, so that local authorities can learn from each other and market players and research institutes can identify and respond to needs. NKL has also published technical, legal, organizational and financial fact sheets on the platform.
