Dutch charging network operator Fastned has installed a fast charging station in the historic city of The Hague, next to the Huis ten Bosch Royal Palace. It is the first of five stations planned for the city.
Fastned already has 55 fast charging stations along Dutch highways, and is now expanding its network to urban locations. Fastned’s stations are powered by renewable solar and wind energy.
“Urban stations make our network complete,” said Bart Lubbers, co-founder of Fastned. “People want to charge their car wherever their battery runs empty, and this can happen along the highway as well as in cities. Also, the majority of Dutch households don’t have their own driveway where they can charge. These people also want to drive electric and now they can do so by charging their car at Fastned for the same price as at home: 19 [euro] cents per kWh.”
