There are a number of factors to consider when looking at charging solutions for your apartment or public parking building. Our experienced team can help.
Electric vehicle charging for apartments and parking buildings can present a unique set of challenges to building owners, body corporates and their electrical contractors. While rapid DC based EV charging solutions will be suitable for a public charging service, most EV charging behaviour will occur overnight or during extended parking periods. For these occasions, slower AC charging systems are best suited and provide an affordable option for mass adoption.
Parking building operators and body corporates managing apartment buildings will increasingly be asked to install and manage EV charging solutions for their parking customers and apartment owners & tenants. Doing this on a small scale with a few EV chargers is generally straightforward , however, once the number of EV chargers begins to scale then issues can arise.
“Using smart chargers allows for load management to be applied across clusters and individual EV chargers, depending on requirements and available electricity at that time.”
Evnex has designed our system to be fully interoperable. This means that while we have our own AC charging hardware, we are also able to support charging hardware from other brands. CP Link™ is a cloud-based, open standards system that supports compliant OCPP 1.6J electric vehicle charging hardware.
What this all means is that Evnex can provide an end-to-end EV charging solution, both AC charging hardware and a cloud management system that supports a wide variety of third-party hardware. Additionally, for large scale deployments we can control a variety of factors so the electric vehicle charger fleet can be installed in apartment buildings, parking buildings or even at your workplace.
A dedicated web management dashboard and mobile app is available; body corporates can even add a margin on energy sold to offset the cost of providing the service. CP Link™ has advanced functionality and features that make managing a fleet of EV chargers a simple and easy process.
