The Netherlands launches plan of nationwide electric car infrastructure: 1,7 million charging points by 2030

The Dutch government is going to install hundred of thousands charging stations in cooperation with 6 regions.

The ambitious plan was published on Wednesday, 8 July. The plan was agreed upon by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Waterstaat, together with the network operators. In 2030 all newly purchased cars would need to be fully electric, according to the plan of the Dutch government. It is expected that around that time about 1,9 million electric cars will be driving on the roads of The Netherlands, while 1,7 million charging point would supply clean fuel for these vehicles. According to the proposed forecasts, 213 new charging points per working day  will be added already in the next year. This number is going to increase to 550 new charging points a day by the year of 2025.

The Dutch government is allocating 15 million euros to help the regions realize a nation-wide charging network. The other 15 million will be provided by the 6 regions.

Hereby the list of the 6 regions:

G4 (Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht)

MRA Electric (provinces of North Holland, Flevoland, Utrecht)

Provinces of Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe

Provinces of Overijssel and Gelderland

Provinces of North Brabant and Limburg

Smart charging plazas will play a big role in making sure that all the electric vehicles are appropriately charged at all times. The fact that the government gave priority to electric solutions doesn't  mean that other technologies supporting emission-free driving are excluded. The government will also make sure there are sufficient charging locations for hydrogen fueled vehicles, but at this moment electric car solutions seem to offer an easier and more affordable way to the private sector.
