This is the program for the symposium presenting the SparkCity (formerly ABCD) model. It took place on the 11th of November 2017 from 12:30 to 17:00 at ElaadNL Utrechtseweg 310, 6812 AR Arnhem (026 312 0223).
On November 13 2017, SparkCity was formally presented to the public. Gijs is a consultant and EV expert at grid operator Alliander but while working with us on SparkCity he was a consultant for OverMorgen. His unparalleled knowledge on the link between electric vehicles and the built environment allowed us to select the most representative neighborhoods for SparkCity.
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.
