Number of charging stations for electric vehicles in the Netherlands 2011-2019

With the growing demand for fully electric cars in the Netherlands, the development of charging stations is inherent to this trend. A steady progress has been made to develop an infrastructure to support the so-called plug-in electric vehicles. In 2011 the volume of these charging stations amounted to a total of 1,826, in 2019 it significantly increased to approximately 41,000. In the same fashion, the electric vehicle charger density by country displays that the Netherlands top the ranking with roughly 19 electric vehicle stations per 100 kilometers of paved road in 2017. To put it in perspective, China and the United Kingdom had 3.5 and 3.1 electric vehicle stations per 100 kilometers, respectively. However, considering China's population and country size, 3.5 stations per 100 kilometers is impressive.

Steady increase public and semi-public charging stations

Categorizing the number of charging stations by type, both regular public as well as semi-public charging stations saw a steady increase between 2010 and 2019. Regular public chargers are available 24/7 and increased from 400 stations in 2010 to 21,049 as of February 2019. Semi-public charging points are interoperable (reported as accessible by their owners) and can be found at shopping malls, office buildings, parking garages etc. This type of charging station grew from 0 in 2010 to 17,059 in 2019.

Neighboring countries

  When observing the volume of charging stations in the neighboring countries Germany and Belgium, the following differences can be noted. For instance, Germany has in total 25,531 charging stations, of which the majority are normal charging points. However, Belgium counts in total 1,600 charging stations. To put it differently; a study from EVBox and Rexel indicated that 60 percent of the Belgian solar panel owners considers buying an electric car. The Flanders region counted already 242,000 solar panel installations. With this knowledge and taking the current infrastructure of charging stations into account, the study from EVBox and Rexel questions whether Belgium is ready for that.
