E-Mobility: Getting smart with data

Discover how Dutch cities facilitate clean electric driving.

The cities of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, the Hague, Utrecht and the metropolitan region of Amsterdam are world-wide frontrunners in facilitating electric driving by rolling out public charging stations. This afternoon you will get to know everything about the roll-out of public charging infrastructure. We present practical tools to monitor the performance of charging stations, evaluations of policy measures, models to simulate future scenarios, and more research results.

This afternoon we will charge you up with practical knowledge and applicable outcomes of four years of research on public charging infrastructure for electric vehicles at the Amsterdam University of Applied Science (AUAS). Together with our partners, the G4 cities and the metropolitan region Amsterdam electric (MRA-E) we developed knowledge on specific user groups like taxis and shared fleets, we simulated future scenarios like growth of the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road, growth of battery size of EVs, we calculated the potential for smart charging in order to reduce the impact of EV charging on the electricity grid, and much more. Six different Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) research projects will present their results: IDO-laad, SEEV4-City, Flexpower, U-Smile, National Dataplatform Smart Charging, and SIMULAAD.

14:45 – 15:05 H   Recharge Coffee & Tea break


15:05 – 16:15 H   Charging sessions: presentations and interactive program

15:05 – 15:45H: Simulation Studies

Long term challenges for charging infrastructure in Rotterdam.

  • City of Rotterdam

Current practice of applying forecasting and simulation techniques for rolling out charging infrastructure.

  • OverMorgen

Charging infrastructure as complex system: What we can learn from complex system theories.

  • Jurjen Helmus – AUAS

Introducing the SEVA simulation model and providing 3 practical simulation results.

  • Rick Wolbertus – AUAS


15:45 – 16:20H: Evaluating Policy Measures – Paneldiscussion

Data-driven discussion on effective roll out strategies of charging infrastructure with:

  • Jaap Burger – City of Amsterdam
  • Pieter van Ommeren – Vattenfall
  • Roland Ferwerda – Nationaal Kennisplatform Laadinfra NL
  • Rick Wolbertus – AUAS
  • City of Utrecht

Topics (among others):

  • Charging station hogging (“laadpaalkleven”): The data show whether this is a problem or not.
  • Window times: Data shows how window times affect utilization of charging stations.
  • Charging hubs: Early data show are charging hubs are used. Under which circumstances are they preferable?
  • Fast charging: Data shows how fast chargers are used and by whom. What are the take aways for policy makers?


16:20 – 16:30 H   Home charging: presentation of the “E-mobility: getting smart with data”  book

  • Simone Maase
  • Robert van den Hoed


16:30 H   Social charging – Drinks


In the morning of the 18thof June we kick off the Metropolitan Mobility Conference with an international program on E-mobility, Mobility as a Service, and Access to the Digital Public Space.

Curious? Want to attend?

“E-mobility, getting smart with data!” is programmed as a break-out session of day 1 of the Metropolitan Mobility Conference. Sign up for day 1 of the Metropolitan Mobility Conference for €25,- or buy a passe-partout for the We make the City festival. Then make a reservation for break-out session “E-mobility, getting smart with data and order lunch as well if you want to bridge the morning and the afternoon at CIRCL.

Please note: You buy a ticket for day 1 of the Metropolitan Mobility Conference. This ticket gives access to both the morning program and “E-mobility, getting smart with data!”  Lunch is not included: please sign in for lunch as well if you want to bridge the morning and the afternoon at CIRL.



We kindly acknowledge the G4 cities and the MRA-E for providing the charging data of their public charging infrastructure. These data have been a prerequisite to executing this research.

The projects IDO-laad and U-Smile present their research final results at this conference and got financially supported by the Dutch Taskforce for Applied Research (SIA).

The SIMULAAD and NDSL project got financial support of TKI Urban Energy

The EU Interreg North Sea Region Programme has provided financial support and advice for the SEEV4-City project. Flexpower is one of the SEEV4-City pilots.

Please note: a limited number of seats is available for “E-mobility, getting smart with data!” Make your reservation as soon as possible. Contact Simone Maase or Ilana Visser or AUAS if you encounter any problems with registering: [email protected] or [email protected].
