The emergence of electric driving and sustainable charging is a significant development for the electricity grid. Through their mutual involvement via ElaadNL, the Distribution System Operators (DSO’s) involved (including Coteq, Enexis, Liander, Rendo, Stedin, Tennet and Westland Infra) acquire an overview of the measures to be taken to ensure that the network remains reliable and affordable.
Innovative solutions are investigated that will generate great benefits for society. For example, optimal use can be made of the existing network through ‘smart charging’, and fewer expensive alterations to the electricity grid are needed. ElaadNL also envisages free choice of supplier for the user. In addition, innovations are also put to use in other ways, for example in making the public charging stations more compact, more functional and cheaper and in a more efficient connection and management process.
ElaadNL has various fields of expertise:
