Charging infrastructure is the generic term for charging points and charging systems including the operational management tools available for EV charging. Depending on the access, a distinction is made between public, semi-public and private charging infrastructure.
Public charging infrastructure includes charging points on public roads or in areas restricted to user groups (parking lots for suppliers, police, fire brigade …). in Germany, this can also include charging points that are not available around the clock, but at least twelve hours on weekdays (Monday to Saturday).
Semi-public charging refers to charging points that are available to the public but are located on private property. These are, for example, charging points in parking garages, hotels and supermarkets.
Private charging infrastructure includes charging points at private parking spaces (carport, garage…).
