Denmark Invests In Public Charging Standards
The Nordic Electric Vehicle Interoperability Centre (NEVIC), which opened on Friday, is backed by the Danish Vehicle Alliance, with the support of charging infrastructure suppliers ChoosEV, Better Place and CleanCharge.
It is planned that all future charging stations will be installed and tested at the facility before being cleared for use on the road, aiming to develop a standard that will allow electric vehicle owners to recharge at any station across Denmark.
Anders Troi, head of programme at Risø DTU, said: ‘The new center brings us to the very forefront of EV Interoperability, enabling us to test and bypass all the small problems and barriers that always occur when different providers and their technologies have to interact. And we will thereby be able to assist both the market players and consumers.’
