Themes and participants

The Dutch Zero Emission Strategy

In the Netherlands, we look at old and new ways to transport people and goods. Airplanes, buses, cars, LEVs, ships and trucks... We research, invent and implement the necessary means for our land, water and air transportation. We look at smart ways to change and improve user-friendliness, reach cost parity and boost earning potential. In short: we look at the necessary aspects to accelerate zero emission mobility, always in close partnership with all parties involved.

At the Dutch pavilion, we show our efforts towards zero emission mobility. We breakdown our Zero Emission Strategy in 7 themes.

1. Aviation | Electric flight in The Netherlands  
Organizations in the Netherlands developed a road map towards electric flying in the Dutch Caribbean islands. Read more…

2. Batteries | Experimenting with new battery solutions and second life applications  
In the Netherlands we investigate the possibilities for and experiment with second life applications and recycling of batteries. Read more…

3. Buses | Expanding the number of zero emission buses to keep a frontrunning position  
In the Netherlands more than 25% of the public buses in daily operation already have electric drivetrains. The Dutch government supports the public transportation companies to invest in electric buses. Read more…

4. Infrastructure and smart charging | Still going strong in the roll out of the smartest electric vehicle charging infrastructure  
Our (smart charging ready) charging network is the densest in the world and we have a multi-annual multi-stakeholder Agenda to stimulate charging infrastructure for all modalities. Read more…

5. Light Electric Vehicles | Promoting the use of LEVs for urban logistics  
LEVs are an excellent solution for last mile city distribution, best practices can be shared. Read more…

6. Logistics | Driving towards zero emission logistics
Logistical vehicles are the next big segment to transition into a sustainable manner. Our zero emission zones, that will be implemented from 2025 and onwards, are a good way to stimulate the usage of electric vehicles. Read more…

7. Maritime applications | Striving for zero emission inland waterways transportation
Inland shipping is on its way to become more sustainable. The Netherlands is a front runner in sustainable transport by water. Read more…
