An electric bicycle. Yours finally, after getting, nota bene, a good deal from your boss. But where can you get it charged?
That's right, says Fennet van de Wetering of Facilities & Services (Safety and Environment). And it's not certain if there will be one in the future. The problem faced by Nijssen and others is already known. 'We are looking into what we can and will do,' explains Van de Wetering. This includes finding out what is being done about this in other parts of the country. To be continued...
Nijssen knows other colleagues with electric bicycles. But these have detachable batteries. 'They take their batteries to their workplaces and connect them to the power points there. My battery is attached to the bicycle frame. So I have to take my bike to the first floor.' He is prepared to pay for the electricity, in any case.
Nijssen is concerned about this lack of facilities, especially as Wageningen UR will soon begin a trial project to encourage the use of electric bicycles and scooters. 'I'm pleased about that, but the necessary prerequisites have to be present too.'
