An important objective of the project is to significantly speed up the request and realisation process in EV demands. An online request system has been set up for that purpose. With this system, Rotterdam drivers can check whether it is worthwhile to make a request to expand the network or whether they already live or work close to a charge point.
In addition, the charge points supply 100% Dutch green power, which is largely generated by local windmills and solar panels. New charge points will be equipped with smart charging technologies, so that they can absorb peaks and troughs on the power grid.
Electric cars can contribute towards the stability of the power grid. In this way we will accelerate the transition to sustainable energy sources. In due course, if somewhat less power is available for a brief period, for example because of lower wind speeds or because the sun in not shining, the batteries of the electric cars will temporarily return power to the grid.
