The new generation of EV charging is here
Total Gas & Power and ChargePoint have partnered to bring world-leading networked EV charging technology to the UK.
Traditional, non-networked or “dumb” chargers can be cheaper upfront, but they will cost more in the long run when you have to pull them out and replace them with networked chargers that have the features drivers demand.
Networked, or “smart,” charging solutions allow all types of businesses to connect EV charging stations to a network. No matter what business you’re in, this offers many benefits, from remote monitoring of stations, to customising who can charge and how much they pay, to installing more stations without electrical upgrades. This can benefit businesses that want to install more charging spots without putting in a new transformer, retail stores that want to set a fee for charging after people are done shopping or multifamily communities that need to track residents’ energy use. Networked charging also makes it easy to get new features over time, like new ways to charge or new reporting options.
