The parking regulations for EV charging in Norway will take effect from 1st of July 2018 and will make electric vehicle charging more available in parking spaces.

The Norwegian parking regulations require EV charging facilities on parking spaces where the public is offered parking on conditions, for example for payment of a fee or time limit. These places should be established within 1.1.2018. The Norwegian Public Roads Administration has postponed the deadline for 1.7.2018

When planning for EV charging in parking areas, it is important to think ahead and install a charging solution that can be scaled efficiently with the fast growth of electric vehicles.

Espen Limstand, Director of Business Development in OfficeLink, has seen that the electric car is coming to stay and a whole industry will be built around the electric cars where charging will be a key part and payment of charging will be important.

It looks like many have been postponing to invest in an EV charging solution, only here in Bodø we see there are a lot of parking spaces that do not meet the demand for EV charging facilities in the parking lot, said Espen.
