Creating an efficient charging infrastructure is a key issue for electromobility expansion, because according to studies many drivers will start switching to EV when they know there’s a charger at least every 75 miles of driving. Petrol stations will be very important on this because they are already located based on driving patterns. They will be especially necessary in countries where many drivers live in apartments without a private parking and park their cars on the street.
nstalling EV chargers in petrol stations can also become a benefit for companies that operate them. They will be adapting its installations to new regulations that are appearing these days, but they will also offer extra services to their customers. These customers will spend around 20 minuts in these services stations waiting for their vehicles to be charged, and this will increase revenues because they may be spending money in shops and restaurants.
Designed to be installed in both public access environments (urban spaces, shopping centres, airports, road-side rest areas…) and private ones (companies with EV fleet, taxi stop stations…) where vehicles need to be ready to continue their journey in less than half an hour.
Dynamic Load Management
EV drivers want to charge their vehicles faster, especially in public and semi-public spaces while charging services providers want to reduce their costs. This situation requires an intelligent system to manage the charge, and here is where Dynamic Load Management (DLM) comes into the picture.
COSMOS is the platform designed by Circontrol to collect and store data from a specific set of EV chargers located in car parks, offices & communal blocks.
