In Utrecht Region, we are fuelled by a healthy societal ambition. We lead the energy transition by using electric cars as giant batteries for solar energy. Our goal is to implement one of the world’s most innovative, future-proof energy systems. More than 10,000 electric cars in Utrecht currently use a ‘bidirectional charging system’ to balance spikes in the city’s electricity demands.
We know how important it is to create a green, liveable and accessible region. That is why we make a conscious effort to fuse education and business, making this the most innovative region for sustainability in the Netherlands. Robert Llewellyn, from the Fully Charged Show on YouTube, made a road trip to visit the inspirational city of Utrecht where we do things just a little differently. Check out the video below.
