European Commission rolls out first 60 EV chargers
The European Commission is rolling out 60 electric vehicle chargers at its office car parks across Brussels this month, working with Dutch energy product specialist Alfen.
Available for public use, the chargers are Alfen’s twin-socket ‘Eve’ units and can be monitored using an online tool showing real-time usage and functionality. The project is part of EU rules to encourage similar networks to be deployed across Member States.
Yves Vercammen, sales manager at Alfen Belgium, said: “This project fits with our ambition to offer high-end charging stations for all applications. Recently, we started to deliver our public chargers to equip 305 Flemish cities with charging equipment by the end of 2017.
“Alfen is also working on multiple energy storage systems for grid operators and utilities in Belgium. We believe this combination of products and systems is needed to make our energy grid ready for the future.”
