100th charging point for electric cars installed in Rotterdam
Rotterdam decided to foster the introduction of electric driving to achieve cleaner, quieter and energy efficient transport. "As a city, we aim to create good conditions and stimulate electro mobility. We provide good charging infrastructure, stimulate various trial projects and run the municipal fleet on green electricity", said Rotterdam's Alderman for Sustainability, City Center and Public Spaces Van Huffelen.
An increasing number of companies and individuals apply for subsidies to install a charging point for electric cars on their own property. For electric cars which are parked in the street the city has placed special charging poles and ensures charging points at strategic locations throughout the city. This basic network of public charging points can be found both in the street and in car parks, which makes electric driving continously easier in Rotterdam.
