Smart Charging System at Dutch Design Week

Just in time for production the Smart Charging System of van der Sijs was chosen to be the official charging system for the Dutch Design Week 2018. A unique and very ambitious operation with Renault as one of the main sponsors of the ever growing design event. The 45 100% electric ZOE’s were charged overnight at the largest temporary charging station in Europe at Sectie-C, a former Philips site on the east side of Eindhoven. Taking advantage of the already present rooftop solar panels the ZOE’s were mainly charged with renewable energy and drove in the 9 days of the event 63000 emission free kilometres. It is the equivalent of one and a half time around the world that needed 15 MW of clean energy. We are proud to have worked with such great professionals and to be part of a community that will not wait for others but just act. Therefore with great conviction we endorse the theme of the 2018 edition: “If Not Us, Then Who?”
