German law on the development of charging infrastructure in buildings passed
Post date: 15/02/2021 - 08:45
In Germany, the expansion of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in residential and non-residential buildings will be accelerated. The Bundestag approved the Building Electric Mobility Infrastructure Act (GEIG).
Accordingly, anyone who builds a new residential building with more than five car parking lots will have to provide the infrastructure for charging points. If there are more than six parking lots in new non-residential buildings, at least every third parking space must be equipped with infrastructure and an additional charging point must be installed.
The law does not apply to non-residential buildings owned by small and medium-sized businesses that are used predominantly by the owners. The bill only addresses charging infrastructure for cars and vans.
