What do you know about ins­tal­ling char­ging stations ?

If you consider installing charging stations in your organisation's car park, you had better know what you are talking about. Knowledge of charge points

Faci­li­ty mana­gers are regu­lar­ly told that they can­not ins­tall char­ging sta­tions at their loca­tion. The rea­sons vary.

The top three argu­ments put forward :

  1. There is too lit­tle capacity
  2. The construc­tion and connec­tion to the net­work are too complex
  3. Peak loads cripple the site’s power supply

Know­ledge of data exchange

The argu­ments sound plau­sible in them­selves. But you only know whe­ther they are valid if you have know­ledge of the mat­ter. You have to unders­tand data exchanges bet­ween connec­tions, and it is nice to have a feel for eco­no­mic and finan­cial reflec­tions. A cer­tain amount of crea­ti­vi­ty is also required.

Often thought of in terms of tech

In the char­ging sta­tion indus­try, the main focus is on tech­no­lo­gy. One com­pa­ny may know about meter boxes, ano­ther about cables, and yet ano­ther about ampli­fiers or dis­tri­bu­tion boxes. Few people and/​or com­pa­nies over­see the entire, com­plex spec­trum. It is the­re­fore not sur­pri­sing that faci­li­ty mana­gers of hotels, res­tau­rants, school buil­dings, hos­pi­tals, office buil­dings and other ins­ti­tu­tions do not have the requi­red know-how and are the­re­fore usual­ly unable to coun­ter the argu­ments of ins­tal­lers and net­work managers.

It can’t, does not exist

We have been active in the ener­gy sec­tor for over 12 years and have noti­ced that there is still a lot of igno­rance. Through trial and error, Pluq has grown into a valuable source of know­ledge. Com­pare it to a sur­geon. Anyone who fre­quent­ly per­forms the same ope­ra­tions becomes a spe­cia­list. Com­pli­ca­tions and unex­pec­ted situa­tions require good action and unu­sual solu­tions. Toge­ther with our regu­lar ins­tal­la­tion part­ner, we have rea­li­sed loa­ding bays at chal­len­ging loca­tions – the car park of Wagen­borg Pas­sa­giers­diens­ten in Hol­werd (in the middle of the Wad­den Sea) and the car park at Die­ren­park Amers­foort – “were actual­ly not possible.

The­re­fore, at Pluq, we believe that “can’t” doesn’t exist

  1. Capa­ci­ty pro­blems are sol­ved by crea­tive thin­king. For example, you can adjust the char­ging inten­si­ty to the amount of capa­ci­ty avai­lable in real-time.
  2. The construc­tion and ins­tal­la­tion of char­ging sta­tions are rare­ly too com­plex. It requires sharp thin­king, good pre­pa­ra­tion, and pro­fes­sio­nal and good planning.
  3. Piek­be­las­tin­gen zijn goed contro­leer­baar door de laad­pa­len afwij­kend in te stellen.

Per­haps you would be wise not to ask your­self what you know about ins­tal­ling charge points. The ans­wer is actual­ly irrelevant.

The ques­tion you have to ask is : do I want charge points in my car park ?

If the ans­wer is posi­tive, you can use our know­ledge of ins­tal­ling char­ging sta­tions free of charge. 

Second opi­nion

Is your loca­tion not sui­table for char­ging stations ?
