Due to the increase of the number of electric cars, municipalities in our country are in need of a good balance between parking spaces for electric and non-electric vehicles. Because research has shown that there are strong differences in neighborhoods and charging needs, it is valuable to examine a standard for charging points for specific areas. In this project, funded by the NKL subsidized project, Municipality of The Hague, Goudappel Coffeng, OverMorgen, ENGIE, TU Eindhoven and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences work together to achieve these standards or key figures for a number of common areas.

Within this project the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences will cooperate in analyzing existing charging needs in similar neighborhoods. Important tool for this research is the database charging sessions on the public charging infrastructure in the G4 and MRA-e. This globally unique database is the result of a collaboration between G4 / MRA e and the research programme Urban Technology of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. With this project, municipalities will be supported in their policies to comply with an optimal amount of charging points.
