London development installs 38 Evolt charge points
The new Fitzroy Place residential and commercial development in London has installed 38 electric vehicle charge points from Evolt.
he single outlet AC wall mount charge points use the latest load distribution technology to ensure total power to all charge points is consistently available and evenly distributed to help prevent overloading. When an EV is fully charged, its power usage is re-distributed to the other EVs so that they can achieve a full charge in the fastest possible time.
The charge points are split into four groups, with each group being controlled by a distribution board. They are also connected to a centralised server, which manages the entire system and provides a real-time reporting function. The server also has a failsafe mechanism in case of a local power outage, where it ‘instructs’ the distribution boards to continue charging vehicles at a default setting.
Michael Bucknell, development director at Exemplar, said: “Evolt’s installation of car charge points was a key contribution for us meeting our demanding sustainability objectives at Fitzroy Place.”
Justin Meyer, general manager of Evolt, added: “Charge points at new builds are becoming commonplace, as an increasing number of city dwellers and office workers are increasingly environmentally conscious.
“We are visibly seeing the demand for AC charge points at new builds,” he continued, “and it is important to install technology that manages power distribution, otherwise a site’s charge point network may never effectively charge numerous EVs simultaneously.”
