EV charging in the workplace
If you look in your staff car park now, you might see a handful of electric vehicles. It is hard to imagine how different your carpark will look in a few years’ time. There are several reasons why we think it will change dramatically:
- The public are increasingly adopting sustainable lifestyle choices and electric cars will play a big part in this. Especially when there is talk of the car providing all the electricity into the house!
- The government has announced that no new petrol or diesel cars will be sold by 2030. The knock-on requirement for a charging infrastructure to be fast-tracked has implications for workplace charging decisions.
- Car manufacturers are turning their attentions to electric vehicles. In 2011 there were only nine electric car models available to UK consumers. In 2020 that has increased to 130 types of car and van covering all motoring segments.
It is clear these changes will increase the number of electric vehicles we see on our roads, and businesses are also taking it upon themselves to invest in electric vehicles for their staff opposed to petrol or diesel cars supporting their own CSR goals. To support these goals and their own staff many businesses are installing EV charge points in the workplace for staff to charge their vehicles while they work.
Over 40% of households do not have a driveway where they can charge their electric car from, so workplace charging will become essential for many people in the future.
When you decide to provide EV charging facilities for your staff, it is worth bearing in mind, what might seem like a lot of space to give over to electric cars now, will surely not be enough in a few years’ time, OUTCO teams can ensure suitable points are prepared for future EV installations.
OUTCO works with charging suppliers to ensure your charging solution is compatible with your staffs’ EV expectations today and tomorrow. We can install the infrastructure and wiring in anticipation of increased demand so it is quicker to add new charge points as your staff require them. This will avoid future disruption and can avoid costly power upgrades.
Make your charge points a destination for EV drivers.
Whether going to the gym, shopping at the supermarket, or spending a family day out at the zoo people will need to charge their cars at EV charge points. Unlike our habits with filling the car up with petrol, EV charging is more like charging your mobile phone. People will plug in their cars whenever and wherever they can, sometimes favouring locations that have these facilities such as specific supermarkets or leisure locations. Providing an accessible supply of charge points can give consumers a reason to choose you.
Your EV Charge points could pay for themselves
It may seem a costly initial outlay, but your charge points can pay for themselves. The data from the charging units helps you make decisions about how much to charge, peak times and which units are utilised most often.
OUTCO can advise you on the different tariffs available to charge customers cars in a responsible way.
