The Hague commissions Vattenfall to manage its charging network

In addition, the chargers will be equipped with “various technical innovations aimed at reducing grid congestion,” according to an accompanying press release. User-friendliness will also increase, for example, by allowing EV drivers to pay by scanning a QR code at the charging station. Vattenfall has also announced a pilot project for the Plug&Charge function for 2025.

Pieter van Ommeren, Director of Vattenfall InCharge, says they are very proud that the city of The Hague has chosen Vattenfall InCharge to realise its ambitions in the field of sustainable mobility. “In the coming years, we will use our expertise to further develop and optimise the charging infrastructure, with a focus on the congested electricity grid. This will allow us to install sufficient charging stations so that electric drivers in The Hague can charge carefree and easily.”

Arjen Kapteijns, Alderman for the Energy Transition, Mobility, Raw Materials and the Municipality of Centrum, comments as follows: “The Hague continues to build a comprehensive network of public charging points within walking distance. The transition to sustainable transport, is one of the city’s key challenges. Electric driving contributes to clean and healthy air. I therefore think it is important that we encourage its use and make electric driving as easy as possible for the residents of The Hague. Together with Vattenfall, we are making the municipality of The Hague more sustainable.”

Incidentally, Vattenfall is also one of three providers that won a tender organised by the e-mobility project agency MRA-Electric to set up a total of up to 35,000 new public charging points in 74 municipalities in the Dutch provinces of North Holland, Flevoland and Utrecht by 2028.
