Dutch companies currently earn around 5 billion euros a year building charging stations, electric trucks and buses. In 2018 it was still more than 3 billion euros. “Impressive growth,” says outgoing State Secretary Stientje van Veldhoven (Infrastructure and Water Management), who commissioned the study.
“The sector is now about three times larger than, for example, the already impressive size of the Dutch bicycle industry. That is not only good for the climate and our clean air, but also for our wallet. And for people looking for work. Thousands of jobs will be created in the electric transport sector in the coming years.”
