On November 13 2017, SparkCity was formally presented to the public. Roland Ferwerda, director of the NKL (national knowledge platform for EV charging infrastructure) explained why the NKL has been sponsoring the SparkCity model. We are grateful for his talk and for the funding from the NKL.
Peter Swart, policy advisor to the municipality of Arnhem explains how they try to find a balance. On the one hand they want as few public charging stations as possible. On the other hand they want to promote EVs and smart charging. He wants to use SparkCity to get a custom made advice for every neighborhood.
