In 2020, the Ministry of Infrastructure & Water management of The Netherlands, commissioned FIER to carry out research into the user experiences of EV drivers abroad as input for
policymakers. As a case study, the focus was on the corridor from the Netherlands to the South of France, the so-called 'E-Route du Soleil'. Relevant research has led to the definition of
bottlenecks/challenges as input for policy recommendations, to improve the relevant EV-driver experiences.
Below you can already take a look at the "E-Route du Soleil" infographic, the full report of this study will be published at the end of 2020.
As a basis for the 'E-route du Soleil' case study, FIER has developed a research model with 4 phases that can be used as a framework for other countries, that may want to have carried out (one or more phases of) a case study for other corridor routes. Based on this framework and expertise, FIER can conduct more research on a very efficient basis.
