Ladesäulenverordnung (LSV)

Last updated: 5 November 2017
In March 2016, a federal regulation defining technical requirements for the
installation and operation of public charging stations, the so-called
“Ladesäulenverordnung (LSV)”52 entered into force. It transposes EU regulation
into national law and supports an accelerated implementation of charging
infrastructure. The central element of the regulation is the specification of
standardised plugs and socket-outlets according to IEC 62196. Depending on
charging power, type 2 (> 3.6 kW) or Combo 2 (>22 kW) connections are
mandatory for new charging stations. It also includes non-descriminitating access to charging infrastructures.
