Towards sufficient human capital
Part of the energy transition is the transition from the current mobility sector to a zero-emission mobility system in which electrically powered mobility plays a crucial role. The charging infrastructure required for this poses a challenge in terms of innovation and human capital.
Thousands of charging stations are to be added in the coming years. This means that the charging stations to be built per working day will increase tenfold. This puts enormous pressure on the manufacturability of an already underutilized market. ElaadNL therefore contributes to a national partnership, the Human Capital Agenda, to promote the sharing of knowledge. We do this to accelerate the training of new people and to ensure that fewer people are needed for the same work. In addition, together with the partners, we contribute to the development of renewed training programmes. ElaadNL is happy to open its new large Test Lab for this in the coming spring.
The National Agenda Charging Infrastructure, the organization that shapes the national plans to ensure sufficient charging infrastructure, notes that the lack of technically trained personnel will pose major challenges and pose a risk to achieving the target of 1.7 million extra charging infrastructure by 2030. charging stations. Sufficient capacity must be ensured through information and training for the roll-out of charging infrastructure at installers and operators. Learning, working and innovating among grid managers, contractors and operators are thereby linked, so that a new influx of people takes place, existing employees are trained and training courses based on projects and innovations are strengthened.
