As of 11 March 2021, it is compulsory to provide charging stations at certain new buildings in Flanders. Article 9/1.1.1. of the Energy Decree of 19 November 2010 states that certain buildings and parking areas for which an environmental permit is requested must have charging stations installed as of 11 March 2021.
The new legislation also imposes requirements on existing buildings where no environmental permit has been applied for. By 1 January 2025, companies with more than 20 parking spaces, among others, will have to install at least two charging stations for their employees or visitors, either AC or DC chargers.
More information about the requirements for charging points in parking areas can be found below
Daarnaast komt er vanaf 2025 een verplichting om opladers te plaatsten op parkings van bestaande, niet-residentiele gebouwen. Dit gaat over gebouwen zonder dat er een omgevingsvergunning is aangevraagd.
Daarom geeft de regering nu in Vlaanderen mooie subsidies om de mensen te stimuleren een laadpaal aan te schaffen voor thuis of op hun bedrijf.
The difference with Flanders is that from 11 March 2021 onwards you must install a charger on every parking area and this applies to parking lots with 11 or more parking spots.
For non-residential car parks such as shops, offices, industrial premises, schools, etc., the parking spaces in Wallonia must be equipped with at least one charger and the cables must be laid in order to be able to install a charger for at least 1 in 5 parking spaces in the future.
The rule for installing chargers in non-residential buildings with more than 20 parking spaces as of 2025 is still to be determined.
Specific rules apply to parking lots with at least 10 parking spaces and to new or old parking lots.
If you prefer, we can discuss this in a personal meeting with you.
