Charging points for EVs become mandatory for new buildings and major renovations
Thursday, 11 March 2021
Anyone requesting an environmental permit in Flanders to build or structurally renovate a building will have to create or at least lay the groundworks for several electric vehicle charging points.
A decree to that effect was issued in March 2020 and entered into force on Thursday 11 March 2021.
Requirements will differ depending on various factors including the purpose of the building and the number of planned parking spaces. For example, if the building will have more than ten parking spaces, two charging points must be installed. In addition, the groundworks for charging points have to be laid for one in four parking spaces.
