SNZ PAS 6010:2023 Commercial electric vehicle (EV) charging(external link)

SNZ PAS 6010:2023 has been prepared by representatives from the motor vehicle industry, electrical engineering and transport sectors, and energy retailers and central government regulators. It collates advice for New Zealand commercial enterprise. This guideline covers plug-in-type EVs. The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) can use this guideline to determine the selection criteria for energy-efficient commercial charging stations under its funding programmes. Use this guideline if you are a New Zealand business owner thinking about buying an EV for your fleet or if you provide EV supply equipment (EVSE) or associated EV charging services. It will help you understand the types of charging infrastructure that suit New Zealand workplaces and commercial premises. It explains how to optimise EV charging systems to ensure EVs are safely and efficiently charged at commercial premises.

This guideline also explains what businesses and suppliers need to know about how to specify and select commercial charging stations to install in New Zealand. SNZ PAS 6010 can also inform decisions about the future needs of New Zealand’s infrastructure to meet EV charging requirements and how to modify the electricity system to facilitate smart charging.
