Directive 2014/94/EU of the European Parliament and Council deals with the EU-wide introduction of the infrastructure for alternative fuels. It includes the requirement that new vehicles and all fuel pumps and charging stations must be uniformly labelled. In this way, e-car drivers can easily and conveniently determine whether their charging cable and charge point are compatible. The standard EN 17186 specifies the labelling for charging stations for charging electric vehicles and also defines format and size of the new labels.
In the individual EU countries, additional regulations extending above and beyond these requirements may need to be implemented at the national level.
