Fastned opens 50th fast-charging station in the Netherlands
Commenting on the opening, Michiel Langezaal, CEO Fastned, said: “We are the first player to build a network of fast-charging stations which are powered by 100% renewable energy at high traffic locations along the highway.
“This makes the Netherlands one of the leaders in the field of electric vehicles. And this is just the beginning. In the Netherlands, we will build a network of 200 stations along the highway and we also work on stations in and around major cities. The next step is to expand the network to the rest of Europe. “
Former Prime Minister, Jan Peter Balkenende, added: “It is great that this network of fast-charging stations is being built; with the advent of this charging infrastructure the electric car will be an interesting option for many within a few years. Fastned, for that matter, is the starter of the sustainable mobility.”
Fastned contributes to the Dutch Energy Agreement, which stimulates electric transport and the creation of green jobs.
