ACEA, CLEPA and EURELECTRIC agree on EV charging standard

ACEA, CLEPA and EURELECTRIC have jointly agreed on the need for a single harmonised plug system for the recharging of electric vehicles on both the vehicle and the infrastructure sides, and have put forward proposals.

They also stress that this issue needs to be solved urgently, before the rolling-out of the infrastructure starts in on a wider scale in Europe.

The three associations are urging the European Commission to take appropriate measures to ensure the implementation of a single solution for the charging of electric vehicles in Europe, in line with the European industry proposal.

They say that standardisation provides predictability to investors, enables economies of scale, reduces costs for all stakeholders and is essential in increasing user acceptance.
