The advisory board of the National Centre for Charging Infrastructure meets today for the second time. The focus of the digital meeting will primarily be on the first six-month report of the Centre and the implementation status of the federal government’s Charging Infrastructure Master Plan.

The board is chaired by Dr. Klaus Bonhoff, Director-General for Policy Issues at the Federal Transport Ministry: “The challenges that have to be conquered in establishing a nationwide, demand-oriented and user-friendly charging infrastructure for Germany can only be resolved by the federal government cooperating with the relevant stakeholders from industry, associations, federal states and municipalities as well as science. I am delighted that so many specialists are contributing within the advisory board of the Centre and are taking on these challenges together with us.”

The 24 members of the advisory board advise the Centre in terms of strategy and content and support them in implementing the Charging Infrastructure Master Plan as well as outward communication. They meet at least twice annually. Johannes Pallasch, spokesperson of the management team of the Centre: “The advisory board is an important hub for us to network with our stakeholders. The members give us feedback on our work and provide important impetus, which is extremely valuable to us.”

Commissioned by the BMVI and under the umbrella of federally-owned NOW GmbH, the National Centre for Charging Infrastructure coordinates and manages activities for the development of charging infrastructure in Germany.
