– As a chairman of eViolin Jurjen de Jong (GreenFlux) is proud to have been invited to the Benelux Zero-emission Conference on E-mobility and the Hydrogen Economy today. This conference, taking placing in The Hague, The Netherlands, is organized under the Dutch presidency of the Benelux Union. The event will be kicked off by the signing of two Letters of Intent on borderless e-mobility, by the Benelux Ministers and industry partners: Open Chargepoint (BE), eViolin (NL) and Chargy (LU). Together representing 30% of EU charge stations.
A zero emission future
The conference sets out the way forward for our common zero emission future. The aim of the conference is to discuss how we harness the strengths and possibilities of the Benelux in order to achieve zero-emission transport in this region.
With this letter the ministers and industry partners declare to work together towards borderless e-mobility access services between the Benelux region. Cross-border cooperation ensures a huge growth of mutual interoperability. By enabling to charge everywhere with clear information about location, availability and price of charging stations, roaming costs are minimized and EV drivers can get maximum benefit and access to added services.
The partners will contribute to the efforts to interconnect the public charging infrastructure in the Benelux region and make it easily accessible for all EV drivers within the Benelux.
The successful cross-border cooperation between Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg is further fostered and expanded by assuring e-mobility access services within a dense region. In June 2017, the Benelux-countries represented a quarter of plug-in-hybrid/battery electric vehicles and almost a third of EV charging positions in the EU-28.
