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 must follow these changes closely. This is why a representative group of market players will confer once a year to evaluate and update the Standard Set. Input can originate from other NKL projects, new public tenders and other market developments.
How does the Standard Set work in practice?
The use of the Standard Set increases efficiency in public tenders for charging infrastructure. Drawing up tender documentation and other materials is simplified, and costs are reduced. The agreement lists are also easy to use for other parties, such as factories that manufacture charging stations. For both these parties and other market players, the demands of the Dutch market are made clear, and they know the standards that their services must comply with. An example for other markets.
