Lessons from Europe for Public Charging Deployment


Cities are both the destination for many long trips and location of most off-street parking and are therefore locations of most public charging infrastructure. EVBox has and continues to work closely with cities like Amsterdam and Rotterdam to implement charging solutions based on a data-driven approach. In this session, I will discuss observed  trends and data and how these can translate into lessons for American cities.
