The Sustainable Transport Forum (STF) by the European Commission published recommendations for public authorities focusing on procuring, awarding concessions, licences and/or granting support for electric recharging infrastructure for passenger cars and vans.

These Recommendations are meant to provide practical guidance for public authorities that plan to organise tendering procedures for the deployment or operation of recharging infrastructure for electric vehicles. It includes several examples of real-world situations and recommendations for these public authorities. These are not exhaustive; the examples and best practices provided are merely a reflection of information that was provided as part of this STF exercise. Moreover, not all recommendations can be applied to all circumstances nor can all examples.
