How did the city of Rotterdam reduce its electricity peaks and kept costs low with intelligent charging stations?

As part of the Rotterdam Electric programme, the city of Rotterdam in Netherlands wanted to create the right conditions and promote the use to electric transport in order to improve the air quality in and around the city, while accelerating city development. The key objective was to reduce CO2 emissions and noise pollution that would eventually increase the quality of life for its inhabitants.

The ENGIE Solution: EV charging infrastructure to drive sustainable mobility

In September 2020, ENGIE evaluated the available flexibility of EVs on the public charging infrastructure of the city of Rotterdam. The contract included installation of 4,000 new charging points. ENGIE was awarded the installation, management and operation of these electric charging stations where we leveraged the power of Big Data analysis in order to optimize the use of charging network.

This generated a huge amount of 13.332.447 kWh charged, equivalent to approx. 7 million driven kilometers. The EV charging infrastructure:

  • Kept costs low
  • Reduced electricity peaks
  • Reduced CO2 emissions
