EV Station Installation: Expanding Your Charging Capabilities

Electric vehicles charging in a busy commercial parking lot with modern cityscape in the background.

As the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) accelerates globally, the demand for accessible and efficient charging solutions is at an all-time high. Whether for personal use or to support a fleet, expanding your charging capabilities through EV station installation is a forward-thinking move. This blog explores the essential considerations and benefits of installing EV charging stations, offering insights into how this investment can enhance convenience, sustainability, and readiness for the future of transportation.

Why Invest in EV Station Installation?

  • Accessibility: Provides EV drivers with more locations to charge, reducing range anxiety.
  • Sustainability: Encourages the use of electric vehicles, contributing to reduced carbon emissions.
  • Value Addition: Increases the attractiveness of your property or business to EV owners.
  • Future-Proofing: Prepares your infrastructure for the growing number of EVs on the road.

Types of EV Charging Stations

  1. Level 1 Charging: Utilizes a standard 120V AC outlet, suitable for overnight charging or as a last resort.
  2. Level 2 Charging: Requires a 240V AC outlet, offering faster charging times and is ideal for homes, workplaces, and commercial spaces.
  3. DC Fast Charging: Provides rapid charging, making it perfect for public charging stations along highways or in areas where quick charging is necessary.

Key Considerations for Installation

  • Location: Choose accessible and convenient locations for potential users.
  • Electrical Capacity: Ensure your site’s electrical infrastructure can support the additional load of the charging stations.
  • Type of Charging Stations: Select the type of charging station based on the intended use, whether for slow overnight charges or rapid top-ups.
  • Permits and Regulations: Comply with local regulations and obtain the necessary permits before installation.

The Installation Process

  1. Site Assessment: Conduct a thorough assessment of the proposed location to ensure it meets the requirements for installation.
  2. Planning: Determine the number of charging stations, their type, and layout within the space.
  3. Professional Installation: Work with certified professionals to install the charging stations, ensuring compliance with safety standards.
  4. Maintenance: Set up a maintenance plan to keep the charging stations in optimal condition.

Maximizing the Impact

  • Smart Charging Solutions: Implement smart charging stations that can manage the load and optimize charging schedules based on usage patterns.
  • Incentives and Rebates: Take advantage of government or manufacturer incentives to reduce installation costs.
  • Publicity: Promote your new EV charging capabilities to attract users and demonstrate your commitment to sustainability.

Conclusion

The installation of EV charging stations is more than just an infrastructure upgrade; it’s a commitment to supporting the transition to sustainable transportation. By expanding your charging capabilities, you not only enhance the convenience and appeal of your property or business but also contribute significantly to the global effort to reduce carbon emissions. With thoughtful planning and execution, the installation of EV charging stations can be a strategic move that pays dividends in both the short and long term.

  • Rapid

    DC charging

    Every vehicle is plugged in.

    Now any specific car can be charged in minutes rather than hours on slow AC charging. A game-changer for drivers and operations teams. 

  • Every space

    EV ready

    DockChain makes it possible, and affordable, to make every space in a car park ready for EV charging. Give certainty to drivers that there will be a charging bay available and remove the operational cost and hassle moving cars on and off chargers. 

  • Customer experience

    Tethered cables make it convenient for users. CCS cables to match the industry standard for high powered DC charging. Charging session authorisation can be configured to operator requirements (app enabled, RFID, open use, etc.)

  • Ease of

    Installation

    DockChain reduces ground works required for installation. Chain cables run in a shallow trench, wall mount, or lay in a cable tray to reach every parking space. The power supply cabinet connects and can be positioned in a convenient location at your site.

  • Scale & upgrade

    DockChain is flexible allowing you to increase the number of charging Docks as demand increases. E.g. Enable 10 spaces, then easily double this in the future. DockChain can be upgraded too, allowing larger capacity additions in the future without upheaval to any existing installation.

  • Battery

    cost savings

    With DockChain's rapid DC charging, a fleet operator could shift from purchasing larger capacity battery vehicles to more affordable smaller capacity ones as rapid turnaround makes it operationally possible to top-up frequently without impacting operations. Ideal for distribution/ delivery firms.

  • Charge when power is

    cheaper & greener

    Charging several EVs makes you a high electricity user subject to fluctuating grid prices. Slow AC charging requires constantly charging to complete in the  available time. DockChain's DC power enables more flexible timing of charging so you can put more kilowatts in your EVs at lower prices.

  • System integration

    DockChain can be stand-alone or fully integrated to your existing IT infrastructure. Charging can be matched to fleet or booking requirements (E.g. Car Rental / Distribution), integrated to customer systems and payments (e.g. hotel bookings or office parks). Analytics and power management are all configurable.
