The Publicly Available Specification (PAS) for electric vehicle (EV) chargers for commercial use has been developed to support government initiatives to increase electrification of transport. It focuses on the energy efficient performance and interoperability of commercial chargers.

This PAS describes EV chargers designed for use in commercial settings, such as private parking facilities for EV fleets and dedicated EV charging stations. It includes an overview of what you need to know and questions to ask when procuring chargers for commercial use. It also provides a technical specification for energy efficient, safe, interoperable commercial chargers. 

By building on existing national network infrastructure, we will help ensure the national network of residential and commercial charging stations is energy efficient and future-proofed.

The PAS is free to download via Standards New Zealand
