EV Charging

If you’re getting an electric vehicle, you’ll need an EV charge point. We’re the UK’s leading company for electric car charging point installation

The electric vehicle revolution

Change is happening, and it’s happening fast!  Electric vehicle (EV) sales in the UK are growing exponentially. All major manufacturers now have very popular electric vehicle offerings, and some are already switching to electric only.  The UK will be banning the sale of internal combustion engine vehicles and hybrids from 2030. That means your next car is likely to be electric.

This increase in the demand for electric vehicles will require a complete shift in the infrastructures of our cities (and homes!) as transport shifts from oil to electricity consumption.  We will need to replace petrol station forecourts with millions of EV charging stations in homes, businesses and public spaces to ensure people have mobility when they need it.

Joju are the UK’s leading installers of EV charging points.  We believe that good charge point design is

  • getting the right EV charger
  • with the right power
  • in the right location
  • with the right functionality
  • and the right payment options

It sounds simple, but it does require careful design.  Our team will help you find the right charge point for your needs – whether you are a homeowner, business or public sector authority.

TYPES OF EV CHARGER

 

Joju are brand agnostic, and we are not tied to any specific manufacturer.  That means we can always find the right charging solution for you – we are not limited by the range of chargers offered by a single manufacturer.

The most common units to install in homes are fast chargers, offering 7kW of charging power or 22kW if you have a 3-phase supply.  The Zappi solar car charger is also very popular for those of you with a solar roof, allowing you to capture the sun’s energy straight into your car. That’s zero-carbon mileage from your own roof.

Businesses also tend to install fast chargers for their fleet vehicles, staff and customers.  However, some companies that use vans, or specialist vehicles like electric waste trucks, might look at rapid chargers.

Councils will be looking at all options; fast, rapid and lamp post chargers.  Fast chargers are well suited for destination charging locations such as car parks.  However, some rapid chargers are also helpful to allow drivers to charge quickly and get on the go again.  Rapid chargers are also a vital piece of infrastructure to electrify the taxi fleet.  We also see councils installing lamp post and bollard based charge points to meet the needs of the 40% of homes without a driveway.

Advanced EV Charging Options

At it’s simplest, and EV charge point is just a plug socket!  But it’s getting a little more complicated than that.  As more and more people adopt EVs, electric car chargers will need to be smart to control when and how fast charging happens so that it doesn’t overload the grid.  It is now necessary to install an intelligent charger to qualify for the OZEV grants for electric vehicle charge points.

Modern EV chargers are including a whole host of new functionality, including:

  • Payment systems
    • Touch and go
    • Phone apps
    • Setting your own prices for charge point use
  • Back-office systems – the admin behind payment and billing services for EV charge points
  • Billing your home charging to your workplace
  • Load balancing, to help integrate many chargers on a local electricity network

Joju can advise on all of these possibilities to ensure you get the right sort of functionality for your EV charger installation

WHY GET AN ELECTRIC CAR?

Electric cars offer many advantages over conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.  They are cheaper to run, from as little as 3p/mile.  They are more efficient than ICE vehicles.  Because an electric motor is around 95% efficient, compared to 35% for  an internal combustion engine, they need about 3 times less energy to run.  And because grid electricity is as clean as petrol or diesel (and becoming cleaner all the time), they emit 3 times less CO2 per mile. It’s a massive win in the fight against climate change.  Not only that, EVs have lower emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulates, improving local air quality and improving people’s health.
