English Uniform Standards for charge points
What does the standard set consist of?
Charge points must meet standards and regulations such as safety protocols. All guidelines, requirements and desires were categorized and assembled in thematic agreement lists:
Functionality, Design, Environment and Location, Engineering-and-safety, International standards and Norms, Realization and Management, Back offices and Interfaces, Smart Charging and V2X and Security. It is important for both users and stakeholders alike that charging infrastructure works as well as it possibly can. For this reason, we have included practical requirements in addition to the guidelines.
Why work with the standard set?
The agreement lists are straightforward and tie in with international standards. Municipal governments and regions that work with them are not forced to reinvent the wheel, and all information is clearly assembled together. In this manner, nothing gets overlooked in the rollout of public charging infrastructure.
An up-to-date standard set
There are constant new developments in the world of electric transportation and charging infrastructure. In order to continue offering a relevant overview, we will follow these changes closely. This is why a representative group of market players will confer twice each year to evaluate and update the standard set.
