Publicly available charging points, charging services and digital platforms for trading charging services.
Order on requirements for publicly available infrastructure for fuels and alternative propellants etc.
The provisions of the Order are implemented into national law following the Bill on infrastructure for alternative transport propellants (L112) and amendments to Bill L112. The Bill and amendments have not yet been adopted by the Danish Parliament. Bill L112 is under notification under the notification procedure and has notification number: 2021/882/DK, 2021/883/DK and 2021/884/DK. Bill L112 and amendments are attached to this notification.
The main purpose of the Order is to implement a number of the enabling clauses of the Bill, including Section 8(2) and (3), Section 9(2), Sections 10-12, 14 and 16 of the Bill.
The Order thus lays down requirements for user information on signage with ad hoc price and total purchase price for the charging of electric vehicles at publicly accessible charging points. Thus, technical requirements are set for publicly accessible charging points, with prices being displayed digitally or on a digital display on the charging point, via an app or via a website, depending on the output power of the specific charging point.
With the entry into force of the Order, the Danish Road Traffic Authority will keep lists of providers of charging services and providers of digital platforms for trading in charging services. In this context, the Order lays down requirements for providers of charging services and providers of digital platforms for trading charging services that want to be included in the lists of providers provided by the Danish Road Traffic Authority. It is voluntary for providers to be on the list.
In addition, the Order requires operators of publicly accessible charging points covered by Section 8 of the Bill on infrastructure for alternative transport propellants (L112) to use at least the communication protocol OCPI.
The protocol is be used as a standard for the data exchange that takes place between a charging operator and a charging service provider in the charging situation and must ensure interoperability between different software systems.
