DIN SPEC 91433 Norm Localiser

The challenge of electromobility:

Plan charging infrastructure for electric vehicles

The planning of charging points is associated with uncertain and expensive decisions. Time and again, the question arises as to where charging infrastructure can be operated economically and sensibly. If the wrong location is chosen, the operation of charging points is uneconomical. At the same time, the expansion of charging points and charging hubs must be carried out very quickly in order to be competitive. Understandably, many companies are therefore unsure how to find and analyze the best locations. We are aware of this problem from 15 years of experience in the field of electromobility. For this reason, we have developed Localiser, the software for secure and standardized planning of charging infrastructure.​

We set standards - Localiser was involved in the development of DIN SPEC 91433

In 2020, Oliver Arnhold, CEO of Localiser, and his team won the Innovator Award from the German Institute for Standardization (DIN) in the category "Market launch of a product or service". We are thus setting new standards in electromobility - DIN SPEC 91433 is authoritative for the planning and installation of charging infrastructure for battery electric vehicles. Since the publication of DIN SPEC 91433 in 2020, we and our partners have been applying this DIN standard across the board in the planning of charging infrastructure.

This is what our customers say about Localiser:

The 5 most important points when planning charging infrastructure

You want to set up charging infrastructure for electromobility? But charging points that are not used are uneconomical. How do you find those locations where the potential for e-mobility is highest? How many charging processes can you expect per day and which charging power is the right one?


Know the inventory charging infrastructure

Get an overview of existing charging points in your area. Use the Localiser tool for your search. Mark fast and normal charging points, for different customer groups. And then take this information into account in your planning. Because if you set up public charging points and keep an eye on the distances to existing charging points, you will ensure a good charging network by distributing your points correctly.


Take into account the potential for electromobility

In the next few years, tens of thousands of new electric cars will be registered in Germany. But where exactly are the hotspots for this development, and where will charging points be needed afterwards? Research projects have shown that a number of sociodemographic parameters are decisive for this. The core questions are: What is the distribution of single-family homes compared to multi-family homes in my search area, what is the age structure in the area, what is the purchasing power? Evaluate this data for your potential charging points or your region, and they identify the areas with the greatest growth potential.


Align charging points with demand

Studies show that much of the charging today takes place at home. As the number of e-vehicles increases, drivers will also want to charge at work, while shopping at the supermarket, or in other situations where their car is parked for more than 15 minutes. Check: what so-called "points of interest" are available? What are the traffic volumes of the streets near the charging points? Where are parking spaces that can be converted for charging? In doing so, see where public demand for charging points will arise.


Involve stakeholders

It goes without saying that the grid connection for your charging points must be checked - so get in touch with them. But if citizens are also to be involved, if the housing industry is to participate and other interested parties, then you will get so much information about your charging points this way that you can make a better decision.


Take advantage of funding opportunities

With the right location, your charging station has the best prerequisites to be economical. If you also receive funding, the investment will be easier for you. Check the federal government's programs, keyword "Charging infrastructure funding guideline". Also look for funding opportunities at the level of your federal state.

Planning charging infrastructure:
Location analysis with Localiser

Localiser uses artificial intelligence to plan your charging infrastructure. You simply enter your locations as geodata or addresses in our Localiser app and the platform shows you the best locations for charging points.

Planning your charging infrastructure:
Layer for specification

Locations vary in their suitability for your charging infrastructure planning. At which locations is your investment most worthwhile? You can choose between different layers for this purpose. For example, let us show you parking lots and shopping centers. All layers are available to you and we are always working on developing new ones. The layers you choose save themselves automatically, you never have to activate them again when you reload the website. This way you can plan the best locations for your charging infrastructure.

Software for charging infrastructure planning:
Data as Excel export

The locations for your future charging infrastructure are furthermore provided to you as an Excel file. You can download these in the Localiser app. The locations and data can of course also be accessed via the Localiser app. So nothing stands in the way of your charging infrastructure planning.

Research-based charging infrastructure planning:
Expertise from over 15 years of research in electromobility

As a spin-off of the Reiner Lemoine Institute, an independent, non-profit research institute, in the field of renewable energies, we have many years of experience in electromobility research. Together with our developers, we are able to offer a platform that simplifies the planning of your charging infrastructure.
