Request charging point for electric car

The municipality is building a public network of charging points. Do you drive an electric car? Or would you like to drive an electric car? Then you can ask the municipality to install a charging post in your neighbourhood.

How does it work?

When you request a charging post or extra parking space with charging capacity, the municipality will take the following steps:

  • The municipality will check to see whether there is sufficient charging capacity within 200 metres of your home or work.
  • If there is not enough charging capacity available, the municipality will try to expand it. For example, it could create an extra space next to an existing charging post. Or it could install an extra charging post.
  • All residents and visitors may use the charging points.
Belangrijke informatie:

You are only allowed to request a public charging post or extra parking space if you are not able to park on your own property. The municipality could check if this is the case.


The municipality will investigate the possibilities for expanding the current public network of charging stations if:

  • You have a vehicle registration certificate or a lease contract for an electric car (according to the definition by the RDW, Netherlands Vehicle Authority). Do you not yet have an electric car but will you soon be getting one? You can prove this by showing a purchase agreement or a statement by the lease company.
  • You are registered as a resident of The Hague or you represent a business or organisation based in The Hague.
  • There is no room to place and charge the electric vehicle on your own property. Or in the parking garages or underground car parks belonging to the residential complex.


    Request a charging point


    The request for a charging point is free.

    How long does it take?

    The municipality receives many requests for additional charging posts. It takes longer than 6 months before an extra charging point will be installed. The municipality recommends that you look for a charging station a bit farther from your home or work. The municipality will notify you once your request is being processed.
